New Fiat 500S Announced

Fiat 500S

A new Fiat 500 model has just been introduced in Europe. Called the Fiat 500S, the new model is a trim package that borrows heavily from the North American market 500 Sport, using the front and rear facias of the NAFTA 500 Sport and its unique 16 inch alloy wheels with dark grey inserts. Additional trim upgrades are the racy, flat bottom steering wheel from the 500 Abarth, along with red stitching on the seats, steering wheel and shift boot and dark chrome finishes to the exterior bright work.

Fiat 500S

With the optional black painted roof, the new Fiat 500S looks decidedly similar to the Fiat 500 Prima Edizione cars that marked Fiat's return to North America. This similarity is enhanced with a dash panel that is finished in matte grey, just like the 500 Prima Edizione dash.

The arrival of the new Fiat 500S signifies the European debut of the NAFTA 500 Sport's front and rear facias. These new "bumpers" were designed in Italy by Roberto Giolitto and his team at Fiat Centro Stile and were previously exclusive for NAFTA Fiat 500 Sports.


There will be nine body colors available: Ice White, Passion Red, Carrara White, Black Vesuvius, Pompeii Grey, Grey Coliseum, Mediterranean Blue, Matte Black Stealth and a three-layer white pearl.


The Fiat 500S will also be available in Cabrio form. There are four engine options: a 1.2L 69 HP 4 cylinder, a 0.9L TwinAir 85 HP 2 cylinder turbo, a 1.4L 16v 100 hp 4 cylinder and a 1.3L  MultiJet II diesel 16v four with 95 hp.


Prices of the Fiat 500S range from 13,750 euros for a car equipped with the 1.2 L engine and top out at 16,050 euro for the 1.3L MultiJet II version (the 500c Cabrios are, respectively, 17,250 euro and 19,550 euro).
