No motor show is complete without at least one new special edition version of the Fiat 500. Here’s what they are planning to reveal at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, a retro-cool edition called Fiat 500 Cult. There is, of course, no doubt the 500 is a Cult Classic. This car just serves as a reminder.
So what sets the Fiat 500 Cult apart from the hundred other special editions we’ve seen so far? Well, if we cut right to the chase, it comes with 16-inch alloy wheels with a new design; a gloss black roof panel (aft of the fixed glass sunroof); chrome or gloss black door mirror covers (depending on customer preference); chrome exterior detailing; a gloss black surround for the tail light clusters and rear parking sensors.
Those were for the exterior. Inside the cabin you get leather seats as standard, either in black leather (with ivory or red inserts), tobacco leather (with ivory inserts) or red leather (with ivory inserts)., and a 7-inch instrument display.
Based on the high specification Lounge version, Fiat 500 Cult also introduces a number of universal updates to the 500 range for 2014. There is a new 0.9 TwinAir engine, which depending on the Eco or Sport mode makes either 98 or 105 PS, and delivers 68 mpg. The TFT instrument is another new feature, which also alters its appearances depending on the driving mode you are in.
The Cult can also be ordered with the 69hp 1.2-litre petrol; the 85hp 0.9 TwinAir Turbo Petrol (both also available with the Dualogic gearbox); and the 95hp 1.3 MultiJet II Turbo Diesel.
