The Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon Hatchback is a special edition car that has many unique features and is set to help the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The automaker has designated a portion of the sales price to be donated to the foundation for every vehicle sold. This limited edition vehicle is being offered to only 250 buyers to keep its unique appeal on the market. Much like the standard 500 Lounge on which it was based, this Fiat will offer a lot of benefit to the buyer in terms of standard features. It will not, however, improve in performance or fuel economy. The majority of the appeal are for the unique color and style of this vehicle, along with the ability to know one is helping with the foundation's mission for prevention and a cure for breast cancer.
The exterior of the Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon Hatchback is a portion of what buyers are attraction to. The body style is the same as the traditional 500, but the colors and accents are unique to only this vehicle. Those options include a body choice of silver or white with a dark pink side stripe. The 500 logo are on the stripe and there are a light pink ribbon.
The inside of the Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon Hatchback are just as unique. Offer the same space and decked out style of the 500 Lounge trim, there are some unique qualities to this particular trim. It have Nero leather in the cabin with pink accents. The 500 logo is embroidered on the seatbacks of the front seats. The steering wheel and instrument panel are also decked out in pink and black. The key fobs that are included are specially designed for this trim as well.
Driving the Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon Hatchback is nothing extraordinary when compared with a traditional Fiat. The biggest thrill will be the fact that heads turn to see the unique vehicle design. Handling is good and steering is fine, but the low powered engine doesn't offer speed or excitement for the driver. The cabin is comfortable and offers plenty of seating room for passengers. Cargo space is average for the class. Even the gas mileage is not as exciting as one would expect from a small car. Though efficient, it is still lower than other models in the class.
The reason for the lack of oomph in the Fiat 500 Pink Ribbon Hatchback lies underneath the hood. It holds a 1.4 liter 101 horsepower four cylinder. Mated with a six speed automatic there simply isn't a lot of gusto in this vehicle. It takes well over twelve seconds to hit sixty miles per hour and will not be winning any awards for speed and high performance. That said it does get about 27 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. This is quite efficient compared to larger vehicles, but is on the lower side for its class.
