2010 Fiat 500 With Twin Air Turbo Efficiency
GENEVA, SWITZERLAND - We recently photographed the 2010 Fiat 500 'Twin Air Lounge' high-efficiency car and also two very beautiful models who were presenting it at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show (March 2, 2010). Fiat's 500 is a highly successful model in terms of sales volume and customer appreciation and now it is available with a high-tech 875 cc gasoline (petrol) Twin Air turbo engine that produces 85 hp (62.5 kW). The 2010 Fiat 500 'Twin Air Lounge' delivers power and efficiency in a combination that puts it in the same league as some of the ultra-compacts for fuel economy.
The light blue Fiat 500 'Twin Air Lounge' that we photographed in Geneva is capable of accelerating from zero to 100 km/h (zero-62.14 mph) in a brisk 11.0 seconds and does this while delivering a high fuel efficiency of 5.0 L/100 km (47.04 U.S. mpg) in the city, 3.7 L/100 km (63.57 U.S. mpg) on the highway, and 4.2 L/100 km (56.0 U.S. mpg) on the combined cycle. CO2 emmissions on the Fiat 500 'Twin Air Lounge' come in at a very low 98 g/km. The 500 'Twin Air Lounge' also has a Start & Stop engine shutdown system that reduces emissions and saves fuel by cutting the engine off at idle at traffic lights and then re-starts it when the driver removes their foot from the brake or engages the accelerator pedal.
For safety, the 500 'Twin Air Lounge' comes with 7 airbags, and an ESP dynamic stability system with 'Hillholder'. The car comes with manual air conditioning and 15 inch alloy wheels as standard equipment, a Fiat 'High-Class' CD radio, and a Bluetooth hands-free interface hardware link for portable audio equipment. Optional equipment available for purchase on the 500 'Twin Air Lounge'is Bi-Xenon headlights, a 'Skydome' roof, 16 inch upgraded alloy wheels, and metallic paint.
