2012 FIAT 500 Lounge at Fields FIAT of Highland Park
Looking for a car with character? The Italian
sensation has crossed the border to tango with an American audience.
Introducing the FIAT 500 Lounge, a much smaller alternative to the stale cars
on the market. The 500 Lounge features all of the qualities that launched the
FIAT brand, including great fuel efficiency, integrated technology and
effective safety features.
As the high-end option in the FIAT lineup,
the 500 Lounge benefits from zippiness, style and size. With three option
levels, the Lounge boasts 15-inch alloy wheels, foglamps, fixed glass roof,
exterior chrome accents and upgraded cloth upholstery. You won't get the most
powerful drive on the road, but the FIAT 500 Lounge certainly benefits from its
quiet driving nature and gives drivers the option of a five-speed manual
transmission or a six-speed automatic, the latter coming standard with the
A small car does not require a big engine.
The 500 Lounge features a 1.4-liter four-cylinder that puts out 101 horsepower
and 98 pound-feet of torque, small numbers to be sure, but smaller numbers means
greater efficiency. In fact, it gets an average 30 mpg in city driving and 38
mpg on the highway. It's available at Fields FIAT of Highland Park. Visit our website to learn how to buy.
Americans tend to associate small cars with
lax safety, but the FIAT 500 Lounge proves that this isn't the case. In terms
of accident avoidance, the Lounge comes equipped with stability and traction
control, as well as antilock disc brakes. Because it doesn't reach breakneck
speeds, the FIAT comes to a stop quickly: from 60 mph in just 119 feet. To
protect in the case of an accident, you get a driver knee airbag, front side
airbags and side curtain airbags. The crumple zone in the front of the car
makes you much safer in the case of an accident.
It's hard to ignore the sexy styling of the FIAT 500
Lounge. It's a breath of fresh air on an American market where major auto
brands don't often dare to be different. City drivers love the FIAT's size,
giving them the ability to grab small parking spaces, make tight turns and
handle better than many of the cars on the road. If you're considering the FIAT
