First Interior Photos Of The North American Fiat 500
Here are the first interior shots posted of the new North American Fiat 500. There are some subtle differences between the NA 500 and its European cousin, like the locking glove box, shape of the window switches and the stowage compartment on the side of the console.
Big news here is the transmission. It looks like the European Dualogic has been replaced by a more conventional automatic. I had reported earlier on this blog that there were rumors the Dualogic would be replaced with an AISIN sourced 6 speed automatic. Judging by these pictures, that looks to be the case. We'll find out later in the day...
Interior with what looks similar to European Pop/Lounge seats. Note the armrest. Seats also appear to be wider.
These heavily bolstered seats are in the 500 Sport and are also wider than European Sport seats.
