Hello, I noticed on another blog, the truth about cars, that the interior shot posted above is from the Mexican built 500 for the American market. Notice the HVAC manual controls. Just wondering. Maybe you could comment on this:

My comment is that this IS NOT a US Fiat 500. It is a photo of a European car with optional equipment (someone please tell TTAC it is possible to configure a European Fiat 500 in 500,000 different option combinations). By the way, this picture has been on Chrysler's site for many months. The grey car is equipped with manual climate control, Frua leather interior, the Sports styled instrument panel and the Blue&Me hands free system.
This is also a European Fiat 500 interior, It is equipped with automatic climate control, Hi-Fi 'Interscope Sound System', Blue&Me hands free system, comfort instrument panel and cloth interior.
Thank you to anonymous (whoever you are) for posting that comment. Hope that clears things up.
Best regards, Chris
