The new 500S is the sportier looking version of Fiat’s trendy city car, a model that has recently received a refreshment treatment.
Compared to the standard Fiat 500, the new 500S variant is fitted with sports bumpers, special side skirts and a rear spoiler, while the door handles, tailgate, “moustache”, mirror fairings and 15-inch alloy wheels are finished in “Satin Graphite”. New design 16-inch wheels with a matt diamond black treatment are available as an option. Rear privacy glass, a chrome-finish exhaust tailpipe, a bold rear grille and two specific body colours, Electronica Blue and a new matt Green, complete the list of the exterior makeup.
Inside, the new 500S is enhanced by black seats and a black roof lining which contrast with the door panels and seat edges, which are finished in blue, white or yellow. “Satin Graphite” detailing also features on the dashboard fascia and special sports steering wheel and the interior can also be trimmed in optional Frau leather with white or light blue details for a splash of additional upscale feel. A full-colour TFT instrument display with reconfigurable settings is standard on the 500S.
The dashboard incorporates FIAT’s new Uconnect 7-inch touchscreen with tablet-like controls and a high resolution display as standard equipment. The exclusive BeatsAudio sound system also debuts on this version and will be available on all models later in the year.
