Fiat puts new 500 supermini on sale

Fiat is claiming a market first after revamping its 500 supermini.

The Italian manufacturer says the latest technology has been harnessed to come up with a digital instrument display that measures just seven inches.

Motorists who plump for the 2014 version of the 500 will be asked to fork out £10,160 for the 1.2 Pop.

Meanwhile pricing for the new higher spec, range-topping Cult version - which is also available as a convertible - begins at £13,060.

Motorists who already drive a Fiat 500 will be familiar with the design of the trip computer, speedometer and rev counter, which comes as standard on the 500S and Cult models.

But the middle of the new display features a digital image of the vehicle that can be adapted to highlight a variety of trip readouts.

These will tell motorists everything they need to know from how much fuel they're using and how far they can travel before it runs out, to the distance they've already travelled.
