FIAT 500 diesel: only the brave
The Fiat 500 is an A-segment city car manufactured and marketed by the Fiat subdivision of Stellantis since 2007. It is available in hatchback coupé and fixed-profile convertible body styles, over a single generation — with an intermediate facelift in Europe with model year 2016. The 500 is internally designated as the Type 312 by FCA.
FCA launched the 500 with three Euro5-compliant engines: two petrol/gasoline and one diesel engine. The 1.3 Multijet was equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
Despite the 500’s name, which originally corresponded to its engine displacement, the lowest displacement is 1242 cc with 69 metric horsepower (PS), notably larger and more powerful than both the original 500 1957–1975 and the Cinquecento.
