2016 Fiat 500 USA Model Changes

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.
