It’s official – New Fiat 500 to be unveiled next month image

It won’t be a new generation, however, as the carmaker will be pulling the wraps off the facelifted version of the city cruiser.

The 2016 Fiat 500 is getting ready to be officially unveiled, after a report was indicating such a model a few weeks back. The small city car has been confirmed by the Italian based automaker and it will have its world premiere on the 4th of July.

“On July 4 1957 the FIAT was launched to the Italian public. Developed by legendary engineer Dante Giacosa, the FIAT 500 was designed to be as affordable to buy and run as possible”, says the carmaker in its press release. “On July 4 2015, FIAT will unveil the new FIAT 500 for the first time.”

The updated version of the Fiat 500 remains in the shadows at the moment as we have no clue exactly on what the carmaker will do to it. However, we can expect the “regular” changes applied to it which will be including the new front and rear bumpers, the slightly redesigned lighting units, the revised air vents in the cabin, the new infotainment system, the additional colored trim and, let’s not forget, the new wheel designs. The engine lineup is expected to be slightly updated too, but this still has to be confirmed. Unfortunately we have no more details on the facelifted 500 at this time and we will have to wait for the carmaker to officially pull the wraps off its body in order to find out more.
