Jake Sweeney FIAT knows that many Lexington, KY FIAT owners take their pets with them when driving. After all, why shouldn’t your dog or cat enjoy a great ride in a fine vehicle? We know several drivers who rely on cars like the 2018 FIAT 500L in our new vehicle inventory, and our dealership wants to tell you why this particular FIAT model is especially pet-friendly. Our staff also wants to suggest ways to ease the ride for your four-legged family members!

One of the advantages of the 2018 FIAT 500L is the amount of available space that can fit your dog or cat. According to The Car Connection, the 2018 FIAT 500L can attain up to 68 cubic feet of storage space with the rear seat down (22.4 with that seat raised) which is just perfect for a large dog or several cat carriers. (This FIAT model’s 1.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine also promises an exceptionally smooth ride for your furry passengers). Whether you’re taking a road trip with Fido or a quick trip to the vet with Jasper and Kitty, this is one FIAT model that easily fits a pet-friendly lifestyle!

Our FIAT dealership serving Lexington, KY also has some great tips for making the 2018 FIAT 500L easier and safer for your pets. Keeping your FIAT 500L clean is critical, so be sure to stock up on seat pads, squeegee, and baking soda. (Baking soda comes in handy if your pet gets carsick or has another unfortunate accident, and a squeegee can also come in handy in keeping your pet groomed). Our staff also suggests purchasing tethers for your dog in order to keep them safe. (We also suggest keeping your cats in carriers, and using seat belts to secure them while driving).
