On the occasion of going past the 100,000 sales mark in the British market, Fiat released an update for the 500 including a range of bold new colours and upgraded interior trims that better match the exterior. These updatess will further boost the appeal of this trendy city car, which has become one of the most popular cars in the small segment within weeks after its launch.
The updated Fiat 500 comes with six new colors including Countrypolitan Yellow and New Age Cream solid paints, and Groove Metal Grey, Epic Blue, Chillout Purple and Idol Pink metallics. The pink and purple colors seem to be aimed at female buyers, who form a large part of the car’s customer base.
Inside the cabin you now have the choice of Chocolate brown/Ivory fabric and Grey/Black fabric trims. New two-tone leather trims will be available at the end of the year, replacing and enhancing the current leather finishes. Other changes include ‘short-fin design’ antenna and 15-inch alloy wheels.
The best news is that the price will remain unchanged. That will probably make those who just bought a 500 feel bad, because for the same money they could get the new trims. Fiat 500 starts at £9960 for the base model, and goes up to £19,060 for the 500CbyGucci TwinAir.
