2024 Fiat 600 Revealed

Prepare to be captivated by the Fiat Seicento, a compact car bursting with personality and innovation, as it makes a triumphant return after a 13-year absence. This new iteration, the Fiat 600, bears only a semblance to its predecessor in name alone. It has shed its previous three-door hatchback form in favor of a practical and versatile five-door crossover design. Sharing mechanical underpinnings with the Jeep Avenger, this B-segment model rides on the cutting-edge e-CMP2 platform, a creation of Stellantis. Notably, this platform will also give rise to an Alfa Romeo equivalent model in 2024.

The reborn Fiat Seicento measures an impressive 4.17 meters (164.1 inches) in length and can be adorned with wheels as large as 18 inches. Its striking aesthetics draw heavily from the beloved 500 city car, but on a grander scale. Adorning the front and center is the iconic “600” emblem, while intriguingly, the Fiat badge is absent from the front, with only the tailgate bearing the company’s renowned name. Overall, the design language is immediately recognizable, evoking a similar approach employed by MINI when crafting the Countryman based on the Cooper hatchback.

Fiat proudly announces a generous cargo capacity of 360 liters (12.7 cubic feet) when the rear seats are in their default position, complemented by an additional 15 liters (0.5 cubic feet) of cabin space, thoughtfully distributed among various storage compartments. With seating for five individuals, this new 600 aspires to deliver a remarkable range of over 400 kilometers (249 miles) in the WLTP combined cycle, courtesy of its powerful 54-kWh battery pack. In urban environments, it is expected to cover distances exceeding 600 kilometers (373 miles) on a single charge.

When the battery is depleted, replenishment is expedited by the ability to charge at up to 100 kW. In this scenario, a mere half an hour suffices to restore the battery to 80 percent capacity. Powering the Fiat 600 is an electric motor generating an impressive 154 horsepower (115 kW), enabling a swift 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) acceleration in just nine seconds. Marketed as the big sister to the Fiat 500e, this new crossover will also offer a hybrid powertrain option from mid-2024.

The interior of the Fiat 600 takes inspiration from its hatchback counterpart, boasting a plethora of desirable features. It showcases a seven-inch digital instrument cluster, accompanied by a 10.25-inch infotainment system and a six-speaker sound system. As an additional treat, Fiat has equipped the vehicle with an electric tailgate, automatic climate control, adaptive cruise control, and rain and light sensors, adding both convenience and comfort to the driving experience.

In Italy, the fully electric variant of the new 600 starts at €35,950 for the Red version, while the La Prima variant, complete with all the luxurious trimmings, commands a price of €40,950. Production of this highly anticipated model is scheduled to commence this month at the Tychy plant in Poland, alongside the production of the Jeep Avenger. Although the Avenger has been unveiled as an all-wheel-drive concept, the Fiat 600 will be offered exclusively with a front-wheel-drive configuration, emphasizing its urban-oriented nature.
