In Europe, there are 4 versions of the 500 (Naked, Pop, Sport and Lounge). The Naked version is sold in select countries. The other three are more commonly marketed in most countries, however, it is yet to be announced what versions will come to the US.

One of the popular features of the 500 is the high level of standard equipment and also the high level of customization / accessories available (if you take all the accessories into account, there is calculated to be 549,936 combinations available to customize a 500 ). Rest assured, Chrysler's Mopar accessory division will be gearing up to offer these accessories for the 500.

Here's a brief rundown on the standard features that come on the different versions. For more details click here to view a complete list of standard features (this document should be viewed in full screen for best readability).

Taking my driving lessons in one of these. Lovely car.. In fact I am so impressed I'm going to be buying a good second hand one as my run around.

It is light, nippy for its engine size, stylish and quite comfortable and a joy to drive.
