Fiat at the 2015 LA Auto Show
Fiat gave its fans a special treat at this year's LA Auto Show. The new Fiat 124 Spider made its triumphant return to the market after a thirty-year absence. The unveiling was a standing room only event, as reporters and enthusiasts grabbed all available seats nearly an hour before the car's debut.
After Olivier Francois, Global Head of Fiat had concluded his entertaining presentation, the new Spider was swamped by attendees and the special press kits Fiat had created for the debut were immediately snatched up - destined no doubt to become instant collector's items.
Classy, civilized and sexy, the new 124 Spider brings the European roadster experience back to a new generation. Felix Kilbertus, Design Manager of the new 124 Spider and ex-Pininfarina lead designer, oversaw the creation of the new car, which takes design inspiration from the iconic classic yet moves the design forward into the modern era.
Judging from the excitement generated at the debut, the new 124 Spider promises to be a big hit when the car arrives at Fiat Studios next summer.
Besides the Spider, Fiat's show display highlighted the updated 2016 model range. A Fiat 500 Easy model was shown in a new paint color called Rhino (dark gray). The 500 Easy model slots between the Pop and Sport model and features updated trim including FCA's award-winning Uconnect infotainment system.
A Star Wars themed 500 suprised fans of the film genre.
There were three 500X models on display. The most exciting was the 500X Mobe concept that highlights what the Mopar accessories catalog and some creativity can do.
The 2016 Fiat 500L Urbana special edition is now available with a new Red Roof option. The fantastically roomy 500L has received many updates since its introduction, including enhanced comfort front seats, suspension upgrades, and a new automatic transmission. The 2016 model year brings different color choices.
The 2016 Fiat 500 Abarth is available in new exterior colors - Rhino (dark gray), Grigio Cenre (light gray), Giallo Moderna Perla (Modern Pearl Yellow) and sharp looking Celeste Blue (light blue) that was on display at the show.
