Fiat’s smart but sturdy convertible effortlessly combines style and a slightly more sporty look with a great driving experience. Not only that, you’ll enjoy fun road trips in this nifty soft-top – without breaking the bank.
If you want to feel the joy of the open road with the wind through your hair (assuming it’s not raining!) with a funky and fashionable car then the Fiat 500C could be the one for you. And the great news is that you can secure a new Fiat 500C with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.
The Fiat 500C is the cool kid on the block. With its unmistakeable classic silhouette, the 500C benefits from some styling updates, including chrome styling, a smiling honeycomb front grille, and smart new lights that add character. The smooth soft top roof slides back neatly taking the rear window and spoiler with it.
This cheeky supermini holds the road well and is perfect for urban driving and nipping into a tight spot. It’s compact, but comfortable, and surprisingly spacious up-front. Style-wise you can mix things up a bit with 14 body colours and 3 roof colours to choose from. The light steering, and City Steering mode make the Fiat smooth to manoeuvre.
In addition to 7 air bags, all the Fiat 500C benefits from an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) so you don’t lose control if you have to stop quickly.
There’s further features to improve safety, with yet more confusing acronyms, such as ESC (Electronic Stability Control), Hill Holder, HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist), plus a hazard device that immediately turns on the emergency lights, to name a few.
For a car that oozes style and personality, it is surprisingly thrifty to run. It’ll cost you less to buy than its retro rivals like the Beetle and Mini and it benefits from good fuel economy. Insurance may be slightly more expensive than the traditional 500, but it’s worth it if you want to stand out from the crowd.
The dashboard of the Fiat 500C has had a complete makeover and it really lifts the interior of this supermini – bringing the personality and colour from the outside – in. They’ve made the controls rounder and smoother and added chrome touches as well as updating the central console. In true Italian style, Fiat have updated their seat styling too – you can choose from new fabrics win inspiration straight from the catwalk – and seats that are designed to be more ergonomic and comfortable.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is someone who formally guarantees to pay the finance if the young driver is unable to make the repayments. Before agreeing to become a guarantor for young driver, it is important you check that you would be able to afford the repayments (if they fail to pay the finance instalments), as non-payment pay could affect both yours, and their, credit score and result in repossession of the car.
How does the insurance work?
We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Highway Insurance (part of the Liverpool Victoria Group)
How long until I get my new car?
Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
What is the benefit of adding a guarantor to my finance application?
If you're aged under 21, you're unlikely to have built up much credit history, so approval will be based on your personal circumstances. Having a guarantor increases your chance of being approved - thus allowing you to start building up your credit score.
What happens after the first year?
We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)
