These FIAT Cars are Pet-Friendly

FIAT cars are generally known for their compact size, but pet owners in search of a new car shouldn’t let that reputation dissuade them from the automaker. At FIAT of Winter Haven, your FIAT dealership serving customers from Auburndale, FL and beyond, we believe that both the FIAT 500L and FIAT 500X are great options for style-conscious dog owners in search of a new car.

The FIAT 500L and FIAT 500X are the larger, roomier models in the FIAT line-up. Both keep the design cues that made the FIAT 500 such a hit when it first came to market, but with slightly different flavors. The FIAT 500L is a bit more “grown-up,” a little less cute, and the FIAT 500X is designed for a more rugged look. Both models offer ample cargo-room with their rear seats folded flat – ideal for large dogs that need plenty of room to sprawl out on long trips.

Of course, the differences between the two vehicles runs deeper than their design aesthetics. The 2017 FIAT 500L is made for the city, and offers best-in class storage despite its small size. It can also be outfitted with a wide range of comfort and tech options, such as a dual-pane power sunroof, which make long rides all the more fun for both you and your furry family member.

The 2017 FIAT 500X is more the adventurer’s car. Available with an all-wheel drive drivetrain and electronic stability control, the FIAT 500X is built for anyone that likes their relaxation a little bit messy. The car is also features an optional roof rack, perfect for hauling your gear when your pup is hogging up the back seat and/or trunk space.

The 2017 FIAT 124 Spider

Car buyers from Lakeland, FL, in the market for a fun FIAT car should check out the wow-inducing 2017 FIAT 124 Spider. Available today at FIAT of Winter Haven, the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider is a front-engine, rear wheel-drive convertible that is sure to turn heads and get your heart racing with its good looks and sporty performance.

The new FIAT 124 Spider was reintroduced into the FIAT model line-up just last year, after originally being retired from the automaker in 1985 after a 19 year run. Though its design is bold and aggressive, with a long nose and low roadster stance, it retains more than a hint of the rounded shape for the head- and taillights signature to the FIAT look.

Powered by a 1.4-liter MultiAir® Turbo four-cylinder engine, the 2017 FIAT 124 Spider delivers 160 hp and up to 184 lb-ft of torque. The engine is driven by your choice of transmission – either a six-speed manual transmission with a short-throw shifter, or the AISIN six-speed automatic transmission which is paired with paddle shifters on the steering wheel in Abarth models.

Available in three trim levels, including a sport-tuned Abarth FIAT package, this 2-seater can be packed full of an array of extra goodies, including a Bose® nine-speaker audio system, GPS navigation, and a Parkview® rear back-up camera. In the Lusso and Abarth trim levels, drivers can also look for additional safety features like the Blind Spot Monitoring System and Rear Cross Path Detection.
