2017 FIAT 500: Everything You Need To Keep You Safe

Steel Safety Frame Reinforcement. Should you get in an accident, the 500’s high-strength frame will absorb as much of the crash energy as it can. In other words, it’ll absorb it so your body doesn’t.

Seven Protective Airbags. Just another way it absorbs life-threatening crash energy. Well, in seven ways.

Four-Wheel Disc Antilock Brake System. FIAT’s standard braking system sits at the crossroads of safety, security, and control. It gives each brake independent stopping power, which helps prevent a lock-up.

Electronic Stability Control. By fine-tuning the throttle and engaging the brakes individually, FIAT’s ESC system provides you with optimal stability and handling. It’s perfect for roads from the United States to Europe.

ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System. Finally, you can reverse confidently, seeing as you’ll have helpful chime alerts to let you know when there’s an object in your immediate vicinity.
