Fiat has given the 500 some anti-ageing treatment with three appearance packages.
With its iconic Italian styling, the sleek Fiat 500 is one of the most fetching hatchbacks available. However, the current model is a decade old now, and is starting to show some wrinkles. To rectify this, Fiat has applied some anti-ageing treatment to the 500 with three new appearance packages designed to give the Italian hatchback “even more style.” Available for the base model 2017 Fiat 500 Pop, the Sport Black Trim adds body-color sport fascias and fog lamps, black-trimmed headlamps, a black painted roof, and side sill ground effects.
Also included are black side-view mirror caps, black sport spoiler, black tail lamps and 16-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels. The interior has been refreshed too, featuring sport cloth bucket seats with silver accent stitching, a front-passenger armrest and a black instrument-panel bezel. All these anti-ageing enhancements will cost you $1,295. Those looking for a less expensive upgrade can opt for the $295 Two-Tone Appearance Package, which includes a matching roof and mirror caps in Nero (black), Rosso (red) or Bianco (white). For performance-orientated customers, Fiat is also offering the Abarth Roof, Mirror Cap, and Body Stripe Appearance Package for the more potent Fiat 500 Abarth.
If it wasn’t already obvious from the rather long-winded name, this $495 Appearance Package includes alternative color choices for the roof in Nero (black), Rosso (red), Rhino (gray) or Bianco (white), as well as separate colors for the mirror caps, body-side stripe, roof and spoiler available in black, red, gray or white. “With its iconic, timeless, head-turning Italian design, the Fiat 500 continues to offer the ultimate in individual expression,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Car Brands, at FCA North America. “With new custom appearance packages and a full menu of options, customers can get exactly what they want while creating their own fun-to-drive personal statement.”
