Fiat 500

Type 312 500

1 Jul 2015

In a very light aesthetic makeover, Fiat introduced more customisation options for its baby 500 range as part of a mid-life update, which also brought a dusting of extra equipment, including a digital display in certain variants.

The flagship and high-performance 500-based Abarth variants were also treated to an update with two new Turismo and Competizione options replacing the previous more expensive Essesse version.

Power from the 1.4-litre turbo four-cylinder remained the same at 118kW and 230Nm but the newly named 595 pair had more performance-focused kit, such as more supportive Sabelt bucket seats, a noisier exhaust and unique design alloy wheels.
