After its 2007 revival, the chic and iconic Fiat 500 has reached the 1.5 million unit milestone in Europe.
In 2007, Fiat 500 was brought back to life and changed the supermini segment with its cuteness. It’s been a success ever since, collecting more than 40 international awards along the way, including the prestigious European Car of The Year. Small, fashionable, full of personalization features, the Fiat 500 has just reached the 1.5 million cars produced in Europe and it happened in Fiat’s plant in Tychy, Poland. The model that hit the 1.5 million mark is a Pop version in Gelato White, with a 1.2 litre 69 HP petrol engine, destined for its new owner in France. Sold in over 100 countries around the world – from Poland to Italy, from Brazil to South Africa, from Japan to USA – the Fiat 500 has reached this historic milestone 8 years and 4 months after its launch.
For 2005, Fiat gave to 500 a mild facelift. But what kind of changes could you bring to this iconic fashion statement? It had to be gentle, so the Centro Stile Fiat refreshed the exterior and interior, retaining the unmistakable 500 look that has made it such a global success and even adding more customisation options than ever before. Even if you don’t really see them, in total, no fewer than 1,900 changes have been made, most noticeable of which are the new front headlights with LED daytime running lights, the new rear light clusters and the new dashboard with its UConnect infotainment system
