Prices for UK 500 Announced!

Prices have FINALLY been announced for the 500 in the UK!

1.2 Pop £7,900
1.4 Pop £9300
1.3 MultiJet Pop £9300

1.2 Lounge £9,300
1.4 Lounge £10,700
1.3 MultiJet Lounge £10,700

1.2 Sport £9,300
1.4 Sport £10,700
1.3 MultiJet Sport £10,700

So basically you add £1400 for a larger engine and/or another £1400 for the next trim level. Here's the full press releases...

THE NEW FIAT 500 – YOURS FOR UNDER £8,000!

Fiat Group Automobiles UK Ltd has just announced prices of the eagerly-awaited new Fiat 500, which goes on sale here in January.

With a starting price of just £7,900 OTR, the new Fiat 500 represents outstanding value for money and positions the car well below its benchmark rivals. At the top end of the range, a highly specified version with a larger engine costs only £10,700 – an OTR price that includes air conditioning and alloy wheels as standard.

Available with a choice of three frugal, ultra-low emissions, Euro 5-ready engines: 69 bhp 1.2-litre and 100 bhp 1.4-litre petrol, or 75 bhp 1.3-litre MultiJet turbodiesel, the new Fiat 500 can be ordered in three different trim levels – Pop, Sport and Lounge.

Standard equipment in the entry-level Pop includes ABS anti-lock brakes with EBD, driver, passenger, side and driver’s knee airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, power steering, electric mirrors, colour coded bumpers and chrome-plated door handles. The extensive options list includes ESP, glass sunroof, metallic paint and parking sensors.

Sport and Lounge versions start at £9,300, while specifying a larger engine in any trim level adds £1,400. Standard equipment on both Sport and Lounge versions includes the Blue & MeTM hands-free media system, air conditioning and 15” alloy wheels. Sport specification includes a rear roof spoiler, fog lights, sports interior and dark tinted rear windows, while Lounge trim includes a split, folding rear seat and fixed glass roof.

The simple pricing structure means that any combination of car is possible – customers simply start with a 1.2 Pop and add £1,400 for a more powerful engine, £1,400 for a higher trim level, or £2,800 for any combination of both. A huge list of style options – created specifically to offer customers wide-ranging opportunities for personalising the interior and exterior of their vehicles – is also available.

“There has been widespread speculation about Fiat 500 prices this year and we’re delighted now to be able to reveal them,” says Elena Bernardelli, marketing director, Fiat Group Automobiles UK.

“We wanted to create a classless car for everyone, that was not just about being a well-known badge, and with this pricing structure I believe we have introduced a model to the UK that will be within the reach of a wide range of customers.”

The Fiat 500 goes on sale through Fiat’s 162-strong UK dealer network in January 2008.

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

Yippee

Not cheap, but not as horrendously expensive as they might have been Tom, and all three trim levels/all colours/all engine sizes can be ordered.

Your local dealer can have a launch in their showroom whenever they want, but the Fiat-recommended time seems to be 8pm on January 21st 2008 (this being 500 hours into the new year)

I definately want to be one of the first in the queue for a test drive in a 1.2:

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

Do you have a full list of options available Mark - or is it bascially anything you can spec on the 500wantsyou configurater is available? I'd be going for a 1.2 Pop or Lounge I think, like you with the chrome pack, Blue & Me and the coloured wing mirrors, although that's all standard on the Lounge, plus you get aircon and the glass roof.

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

This price list must be true as it is not on the Fiat website

Oh and my dealer did not know them a couple of hours after this post !

The full options list is also available on the French or Italian price lists which I think are linked somewhere here

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

Right then, time for me to put pressure on my boss for a car allowance in the New Year. Sadly, it would have to be for an oil-burner, but a free car is a free car...

Don't forget the height-adjustable driver's seat for the little missus and so (big) KevinB can come round for a (big) test drive?

BTW The Italian wing badge, indeed all stickers, are likely to be put on by the dealer in the UK.

My local dealers still seem to be working on 'very approximate' figures for the options list. Has your dealer now got you some definate prices for options Mark or are they still guessing?

I can find a French options list and prices in Euros.
Has anyone seen a UK options list and Uk prices yet?

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

They must be more clued up than the dealers I've spoken to then





PS Don't forget the height-adjustable seat for the missus. It should be less than 100

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

These prices are correct. Unfortunately you can't get a lot of discount at the moment.

The base of the seat tips rather than move up and down.

Re: Prices for UK 500 Announced!

I think you,ll find most height adjustable seats work on the same principal. Obviously it is quite difficult to mechanically achieve a perfectly vertically adjustable seat.
Where the 500 disappoints, as with a lot of European cars, is the lack of a telescopically adjustable steering column. This would help negate the classic Italian long arms/short legs driving position.
