FIAT 500: Features include new bumpers and a new range of colours.
THE New Fiat 500 launches eight years after the first one, and nearly 50 years after the first ever small Fiat car in 1957 with 3.8 million having been sold so far. Features on this latest model will include new bumpers, front and rear light systems and a new range of colours. But these additions are not just style based, additions like changes to the headlights promise to give increased night vision due to innovations in the shape of the lenses. The new Fiat 500 Pop Star and Lounge models also offer 15-inch alloy wheels as standard and for an extra £370 (€530) 16- inch wheels can be yours. Colours which still include the standard Bossa Nova white, also include two brand new colours – Glam Coral pastel and Avantgarde Bordeaux metallic. There are now six pastel shades, five metallic colours and one tri-coat finish (Urban White). For extroverts, a black-yellow or blackred ‘Second Skin’ option will make sure you get noticed around town. If you really want to cause a stir, a ‘Second Skin’ on the belt line or the upper half of hardtop models can show off Ethnic (geometric pattern), Lord (classic tartan), Comics (pop decoration), Navy (nautical patterns) and Camouflage (military) patterns. Beauty is not just skin deep though and on the inside, the dashboard design also includes the Uconnect infotainment across the range with a touchscreen unit in the Lounge model which has steering wheel audio controls, USB ports, Bluetooth hands-free calling and music streaming voice recognition. There is also an SMS reader for reading text messages on compatible phones. Integrated Sat Nav and Tom Tom are also included. • On sale in September priced from £10,890 (€16,000).
