Fiat 500C by Diesel Makes European Debut
Fiat 500C by Diesel will be marketed worldwide, starting with Italy from May, wearing an on-road price starting from 18,000 euros. According to Fiat, nearly 6,500 units of the already available limited-edition saloon version have already been sold.
The European Fiat 500C by Diesel range comes with four Euro 5 engine versions (1.2 69 HP, 1.4 16v 100 HP, 1.3 Multijet 75 HP with DPF and 1.3 Multijet II 95 HP). These are mated to manual 5 or 6 speed gearboxes (petrol engines can be fitted with a Dualogic 5 speed robotised gearbox).
Just like it was announced for Japan, the car and three body and top color combinations: green with black top, black with black or red top and the “Midnight indigo” blue with ivory top. The “Midnight indigo” blue is a metal-flake body color which - with a finer paint texture and almost 3D effect - is reminiscent of the look of stone-washed fabrics.
Other distinctive features of the car include 16" alloy wheels, the rear trim with imitation air intake with the Diesel logo, yellow brake calipers (only on the 1.4 100 HP version) and the satin finish chrome painted details.
