FIAT Safety Features 

Whether you and your family are piling in for a trip to the Seattle Aquarium, or you’re heading to work in Olympia, you can feel confident in the fact that FIAT protects you mile after mile. For starters, FIAT vehicles come with a 48-month/50,000-mile Basic Limited Warranty, so you know you’re covered. In addition, the following safety features are either standard or available for FIAT models: 

  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System: Keep tabs on your tires’ air pressure everywhere you go. 
  • Rearview Camera: The ParkView® Rear Back-Up camera is standard on most FIAT vehicles, and makes parallel parking and snagging a space in Lakewood much safer. 
  • Rear Park Assist: This optional feature uses sensors to detect obstructions, such as a parked car, so you can back up confidently. 
  • Steel Safety Frame: Made from high-strength steel, the frame of a FIAT is designed to direct crash energy away from the cabin, helping to protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident. 

Are FIAT Vehicles Good in Snow?

Conquering winter in Seattle requires a dependable car. Fortunately, FIAT designed its vehicles to perform well year-round with the following features: 

  • For starters, FIAT cars are equipped with powerful wiper blades in the front and rear to help keep the rain, snow, and sleet at bay. 
  • Standard is Electronic Stability Control. This system uses a combination of all-speed traction control, four-wheel antilock brakes, and stability control to keep the wheels from locking. 
  • Lastly, the FIAT 500X SUV comes standard with all-wheel drive, so you can travel through less-than-forgiving conditions safely.
