Italian automaker Fiat has launched the TwinAir version for both the 500 hatchback and convertible models. Not only does TwinAir refer to the innovative two-cylinder turbocharged engine, but it will also be a new model. The 500 TwinAir lineup will come with additional styling elements and upgraded equipment features. The engine produces 85 hp and 107 lb-ft of torque and can hit 62 mph in 11 seconds and has a top speed of 108 mph.
There's also new exterior styling bits such as door handles, license plate holder and grille with a satin chrome finish, black alloys, and a sports kit that consists of a black spoiler and chromed tip exhaust. The hatchback also has an optional piano black roof. Inside features an all-black cabin with satin chrome finish on the dashboard. The seats are covered by a combination of perforated leather and fabric. The new model will be sold in two trim levels: TwinAir and TwinAir Plus.
The former includes 15-inch alloy wheels, a sports kit, audio system, seven airbags, a start/stop system, electric and heated exterior mirrors and a remote-controlled central locking system. TwinAir Plus adds 16-inch alloys, leather-covered steering wheel with radio controls, an infotainment system, fog lights, brake assist, and hill holder systems. Pricing starts at €12,900 (roughly $19,200) in Italy.
