2013 FIAT 500 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick

2013 Fiat 500 Sport

At Suburban FIAT, we are proud to offer the Ann Arbor area vehicles that have gone above and beyond to receive so me of the top accolades in the industry.

One example of this is the 2013 FIAT 500, which is honored as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). We see the award-winning FIAT 500 as proof that you can have it all–style, affordability, power, fuel efficiency and safety, all in one compact package.

The IIHS picks a handful of cars in various categories each year for the prestigious Top Safety Pick award, ranking vehicles based on their performance in a series of tests. Out of the five tests, a vehicle must pass four with a top score of “good” in order to be considered an IIHS Top Safety Pick.

The 2013 FIAT 500 received a “good” rating, the highest possible score, in each of the categories it was tested in: Moderate Overlap, Side Impact, Roof Strength, and Rear Crash Protection. For this reason, it became one of the handful of cars to receive the Top Safety Pick honor in the “Minicar” category.

It is easy to see why the FIAT 500 is considered such a safe choice. The car comes standard with a total of seven airbags, which work to keep you protected from all angles in case of a collision. The collection includes advanced front-driver and front-passenger airbags, as well as knee, full-length side-curtain, and seat-mounted pelvic-thorax airbags. In the event of a rear collision, its reactive head restraints also activate to keep your head stable.

These factors combine to make safety just one more reason to consider the 2013 FIAT 500, along with its stylish appearance and efficient, powerful engine. No matter what draws you to this stylish, compact model, you can rest assured that it is one of the safest choices around for you and your loved ones.
