Biggest news, though is the changeover to Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system that combines an integrated CD player with Bluetooth phone support and navigation. This modern system is a nice update over the previous system that used an add-on TomTom device that sat atop of the dashboard.

2016 Fiat 500 USA Model Changes

2016 Fiat 500 Sport in Spitfire Orange
2016 Fiat 500 Sport in Spitfire Orange

The 2016 model year brings some changes to the Fiat 500 model lineup. Exterior wise, North American 2016 Fiat 500 hatch and Cabrio models forgo the changes made to European 500s and are identical to 2015 cars, except for a few new colors and the availability of new wheels. A new model called the Easy has been added to the lineup and slots in between the Pop and the Sport model. The biggest change is Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system replaces the old add-on TomTom setup used in previous years and has been added to all 2016 Fiat 500 models above the Pop level.

2016 Fiat 500 Uconnect 5.0


Chrysler's award-winning Uconnect 5.0 system features a 5-inch touchscreen and integrated CD player. This infotainment system enables handsfree calling via Bluetooth-equipped phones, as well as voice-command control of AM/FM, and optional SiriusXM Radio and navigation. Digital music can be streamed wirelessly from compatible Bluetooth smartphones or audio players supported by a media hub equipped with an auxiliary jack and USB port that enables recharging and easy operation of portable devices.

The 2016 model year also brings four new exterior paint colors: Spitfire Orange, Grigio Cenre (light gray), Rhino (dark gray) and Latte Menta (light green). Celeste Blue (light blue), previously only available on the Fiat 500 1957 Edition, is now available throughout the Fiat 500 lineup. Additionally, new-for-2016 wheel options are available.

Fiat 500 and 500c Easy model takes a 500 Pop and adds features including the Uconnect 5.0 system, unique interior with premium cloth bucket seats, standard 7-inch color high-definition cluster display, premium audio system and 15-inch aluminum wheels with all-season tires.

Fiat 500 Sales for August 2015

Fiat 500C Cabrio


Fiat brand sales for August showed a positive gain over last year. Helped by the arrival of the new Fiat 500X crossover, Fiat sold 3,388 cars in August, up 1% over the same month last year. So far this year, Fiat has had a hard time keeping up with the record pace it set last year. This modest increase is hoped to indicate that overall Fiat sales are on the upswing. The 500X arrival comes just in time as the market for small cars have collapsed under the growing shift to buying crossovers.

2016 Fiat Trekking


Sales of the new Fiat 500X crossover in August increased 7% over the previous month as more of cars made their way into dealerships across the country. Built in Italy, the 500X comes in a multitude of variations - front or all wheel drive, 12 colors, 5 trim levels and numerous option packages - and Fiat has been steadily building up its availability at its distribution centers here in this country.

Fiat 500 hatchback and Cabrio sales were down 38% in August compared to the same month last year, but it should be noted that August 2014 was a record month for 500 sales. Year-to-date sales of the 500 have been averaging around 2,400 units per month or off 19% compared to the same period last year.

Fiat 500L Trekking


The Fiat 500L had another weak month, with only 305 units being delivered in August. While one school of thought says that the 500X is stealing sales from the 500L, another says the 500L will ultimately benefit from the increase in dealership traffic the more mainstream 500X crossover is attracting. Right now it seems the proponents of the former hypothesis have the upper hand, but it is still too early to call.

August Fiat News

August was a slow news month for Fiat, but Fiat500USA.com was able to publish the first look at the revised 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth dashboard complete with Uconnect. This modern, award winning system replaces the add-on TomTom unit used in previous years.


We also published a few helpful posts on various updates available for the infotainment systems in both the 500 and 500X.

Fiat 500 Blue and Me Update

Fiat 500 Blue and Me

Blue&Me is the fully integrated in-vehicle infotainment system that is standard on all Fiat 500 models sold in the US and used worldwide on many other Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It allows users to make hands-free telephone calls and control music and other functions using voice commands. It is a neat and convenient feature that adds to the enjoyment of owning a Fiat 500.

Some owners of 2015 Fiat 500 models may have experienced an anomaly where some functions don't operate as intended after the ignition key is cycled. If that is the case, there is a revised Technical Service Bulletin out (Fiat TSB 08-103-14 REV. A) that may help those who haven't brought their car to the dealer yet. It involves updating the Convergence Telematics Module (CTM). This TSB applies to cars listed below with CTM software id listed as G583. It will reflash the CTM to software id G755.

You may be able to check this yourself with the following procedure:

To verify the software version in the Convergence Telematics Module (CTM).*
  1. Press the Main/Phone button on the left side of the steering wheel.
  2. Scroll through the main menu using the left switch on the back of the steering wheel and select “Settings”.
  3. Select “Advanced Options” and then “Image ID”.
  4. On the cluster under application id, if “G583” displayed you probably need the CTM updated and should contact your dealer.
  5. If it is different, this TSB doesn't apply.
  6. If it is "G755" this update was already done.
