It is inevitable that the new car market is going to get extremely competitive over the next few months as manufacturers are desperate to claw back lost sales during the period of lockdown. This can be a good thing for the consumer, as the competition among manufacturers means better deals and more bargaining power for the buyer. FIAT is leading the charge with exceptional offers on their three top-selling models, the 500, 500X and the Panda.
The FIAT 500 Hybrid
While the traditionally powered 500 has been an incredibly popular car for a number of years now, boasting stylish and desirable aesthetics while offering very low running costs, there’s a new hybrid version that is set to take all the headlines. It’s not a plug-in hybrid, so you needn’t worry about installing a charging point, the car just charges itself and uses electricity to alleviate the more fuel-intensive parts of driving, such as accelerating and stop-start traffic.
FIAT has a deal right now that means you can get the brand new 500 Hybrid for just £169 per month on a PCP agreement with just a £169 deposit with FIAT contributing a further £2,275 to the deposit. If you’re looking for an affordable new city car but you haven’t set much aside for the deposit, then this might be the deal you’ve been waiting for.
The FIAT 500X
The FIAT 500X does look like the 500 city car after a few months on the protein shakes, but this isn’t just a small car made bigger, it’s actually based on the underpinnings of the Jeep Renegade SUV. The 500X boasts the charming features that make the 500 lovable but offers more in terms of space, practicality, spec and comfort. The 500X rivals the Peugeot 2008, Seat Arona and Renault Captur while offering a unique charm that succeeds at drawing buyers in.
On other factor drawing in new buyers is the deals currently available on the 500X. Right now FIAT is offering their B-segment Crossover for just £269 per month with a tiny £269 deposit. Like the 500 Hybrid, this is the perfect deal for a family looking for a new car without needing a huge deposit upfront.
The FIAT Panda
And last but certainly not least is the latest FIAT Panda. It’s the small SUV that was around before small SUVs were cool. The FIAT Panda has generated a cult following due to its playful character, exceptional functionality and relatively low starting price. The Panda is able to comfortably carry five adults, 260 litres of luggage and return up to 50mpg, all while being cheap to insure. That’s a winning formula.
Right now you can get the Panda for just £159 per month with a £600 down payment and FIAT will contribute a further £400 to that deposit. Again, FIAT has tailored their current offers to ensure that people who want a brand new car needn’t spend months saving up just to get a deposit sorted which is commendable and we’re sure they’ll attract plenty of new customers.
