The FIAT® 500L
has proven that you can be sexy while being secure.
We are pleased to report that the 2014 FIAT 500L
recently earned the Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This accolade recognizes vehicles that demonstrate “good crash protection” performance in front, side, rollover and rear crash test evaluations performed at the IIHS Vehicle Research Center.
With an honor like this, you might wonder what makes the FIAT 500L perform so well in these tests ? Let us fill you in.
The 2014 FIAT 500L features a system of seven standard airbags that include:
- Driver and front-passenger advanced multistage airbags
- Driver’s knee airbag
- Full-length side-curtain airbags
- Front seat-mounted side pelvic-thorax airbags
All seven airbags plus an advanced steel cage structure create two levels of safety and security.
The four-door Cinquecento was engineered to include an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) that automatically senses when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking, and will modulate the brake pressure to allow the tire to rotate. The ABS is coupled with an Electronic Brake-Force Distribution system that has the ability to apply more or less braking pressure to each wheel, maximizing your power to stop.
For added security, we included Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a feature that senses when the vehicle’s handling limits have been exceeded. ESC reduces engine power and applies select brakes. All of these features work together to monitor and help correct the vehicle’s course by adjusting the throttle and applying the brakes to individual wheels – to help keep you on the right track.
