2015 Frankfurt Motor Show LIVE: 2016 Fiat 500 image

The facelifted version of the Fiat 500 has made its debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Originally unveiled a few months back, the updated version of the Fiat 500 can be compared with what Porsche has done to the facelifted 911, not in terms of performance, but in terms of looks, because if you’re not a fan of the Italian brand, you will not see any differences between the “new” one and the previous model. The small city car is said to have received 1,800 design changes but most of them are hard to spot.

The vehicle is now bringing the different headlights with circular LED daytime running lights, the redesigned taillights, the additional chrome on the lower grille, the new bumper trim which is available in black or chrome, 15- and 16-inch fresh wheels and several other tweaks. Two fresh colors are also added to the range which include the Glam Coral and the Avantgarde Bordeaux and these are added to the new black & yellow or black & red combinations.

The 2016 Fiat 500 is also getting a redesigned interior which is bringing the new steering wheel, the 5-inch touch screen display, the Uconnect infotainment system, more ergonomic seats, new upholstery options, tweaked center console, new cup holders, relocated 12V power socket and others. The 500 Lounge, customers will also get the optional 7-inch TFT display in the instrument cluster. The engine lineup is meeting the Euro 6 emission standards and it includes the 1.2 liter with 69 HP and the 0.9 liter with 85 HP or 105 HP. The lineup will add a 1.2 liter and a 1.3 liter MultiJet at a later time.
