FCA Bank, the captive bank of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance, supports the sales of Fiat vehicles by providing a broad range of financing solutions to provide all its customers with the best possible experience.
Anybody who wishes to drive a car of the Fiat 500 Mirror Family, with technology, style and competitiveness, can opt for one of the following products:
- Instalment Loan: Traditional financing that allows the buyer to pay for the vehicle over an extended period of time;
- Leasing and PCP (Personal Contract Purchase): Highly flexible solutions with low monthly payments and the possibility to choose, on the contract expiration date, whether to return, keep or replace the car with a new one;
- Private Lease: A solution for drivers who do not want to own the vehicle, with the ensuing costs and uncertainties, involving a single monthly payment inclusive of the main insurance, assistance and infomobility services.
Specifically the new 500X Mirror, FCA Bank proposes an innovative option for its customers, linking more and more closely their monthly expenditure to the mileage travelled in their daily lives.
Thanks to Buy By the Mile, at the time of purchase, customers will be able to choose the mileage package best suited to their individual driving habits. Monthly expenditure will therefore vary depending on the chosen mileage, with the same freedom of choice at the end of the contract: they can keep, return or renew the vehicle.
