Are Fiats Safe?

You already know that the Fiat lineup is known for eye-catching style and terrific technology, but are Fiats safe? Even though these cars are small, Fiat manages to pack in big safety features to protect you and your passengers from any unexpected events on the road. From the state-of-the-art Fiat safety technology to the ultra-strong steel construction, it’s no surprise that the Fiat safety rating has earned models like the Fiat 500X a spot on the IIHS Top Safety Pick+ list! Let’s dive into the latest Fiat safety features below:

Active and Passive Features

Fiat safety starts with the car’s framework. Models are built on a steel safety frame that creates a strong foundation for your driving experience, boosting both protection and comfort. Seven airbags are strategically placed around the cabin to protect passengers from every angle, and the multistage driver airbags use built-in sensors to inflate to just the right level. Additionally, the Fiat utilizes Electronic Stability Control to optimize handling through any circumstances, while the four-wheel disc antilock performance brakes are ultra-responsive and ultra-safe.

Fiat Safety Technology

When it comes to Fiat safety features, no detail has been missed. Not only does Fiat safety encompass a wide range of active and passive features, but the brand has also integrated tons of drive assistive technology systems to promote a safe and secure driving experience. These smart systems act as a virtual co-pilot, so you can navigate with total confidence. From a forward collision warning to an active driving assistant, you can enjoy peace of mind on the Anderson and Chico roads. Check out the available options like:

    • Blind Spot Monitoring utilizes built-in sensors to detect obstacles, passengers, and vehicles that appear in your blind spot.


    • Forward Collision Warning detects unsafe conditions and warns you if a fender bender may occur. If you don’t step on the brakes in time, your car will stop automatically.


  • ParkView Rear Back Up Camera helps you park precisely with a wide-angle view of your surroundings, complete with gridlines to ease you into the trickiest spots.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control ensures a safe following distance from the vehicle in front of you, and if necessary, it can bring the vehicle to a complete stop.
