Some Fiat 500's now equipped with Start/Stop

Improves combined fuel economy rating by almost 10%.
Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Mar. 24, 2009

A bevy of 2009 1.2L Fiat 500’s – Less than $13,000 USD and 47 mpgUS on the NEDC.

The Fiat 500 city car now includes for the first time, Start&Stop technology.

The Start&Stop system is fitted to the 500’s equipped with the 1.2L gasoline engine only. The system automatically shuts down the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop and the car is shifted into neutral. The engine automatically restarts the moment the driver depresses the clutch.

In comparison to standard 1.2 models without Start&Stop, fuel economy is improved from 35.3 mpgUS to 39.7 mpgUS in urban driving conditions and from 44.3 mpgUS to 47.1 mpgUS on the NEDCs combined cycle.

“Fuel efficiency has always been a forte on the 500, thanks to Fiat’s industry-leading engine technology,” says Adam Pumfrey, Fleet & Remarketing Director, Fiat UK. “Now the Start&Stop system delivers further improvements while also cutting emissions.

Standard equipment on the 500 1.2 Start&Stop includes eco-Drive and Bluetooth connectivity, radio/CD with MP3 compatibility, remote central locking, air-conditioning, 15-inch alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel with remote audio controls plus front, side and knee airbags.

Priced at $13,857 USD including European Taxes, the 500 Start&Stop is the first model in the Fiat range to be so equipped, and comes with a three year/60,000 mile warranty package.

Re: Some Fiat 500's now equipped with Start/Stop

Oh that is just cool. It almost makes me want to install a stop toggle in my saturn to see if It'll speed things up... too bad the electronic jiggery-pokery to get it to self start on clutch depression would be way beyond me.

+1 on that. Still looking for a car that's as fantastic as my 16V Scirocco.
Totally immune to enlightenment.
