Fiat is launching two new versions to its Fiat 500 and 500c ranges.

The Twinair and Twinair Plus trims are named after Fiat's Twinair two-cylinder petrol engine and both come with the 84bhp 0.9-litre unit.

Twinair versions start at 11,600 for the hatchback. That's 700 more than the entry-level Pop version, but come with:

• Metallic-effect dashboard;
• Sport kit (chrome exhaust pipe, spoiler);
• Sport seats;
• Black interior surround;
• 15-inch matt black alloys;
• Air-conditioning

The Twinair Plus costs from 12,700 and also gets:

• 16-inch matt black alloy wheels
• Climate control instead of air-conditioning
• Blue&Me
• Leather-trimmed steering wheel
• Leather gearknob
• Dark tinted windows
• Body-coloured door mirrors

Fiat Abarth 500C
Buyers can now also pick the hot Abarth 500C with a six-speed manual gearbox. The car was previously available only with an automatic gearbox with steering wheel mounted paddle shifts. At 16,856 the manual version is 1000 cheaper than the auto.
