With a reduced price tag, there is a lot to love about the Fiat 500.
For 2017, the Fiat 500 isn't drastically different than last year's model. However, FCA has changed many of the trim levels on the 500 as well as the corresponding prices. Basically, Fiat has lowered the price on the 500 and made it more premium. This is great news. For example: The upgraded 500 Easy model had a price of $17,745 for 2016. For 2017, the Easy model has been renamed to become the base level Pop model with a price of $14,995. That's $2,000 less than last year's base 500 Pop and even less than the original 2012 base 500.
This price decrease doesn't just affect base models. The higher trim Lounge and Abarth models have also been given a price cut. Lounge models are $2,000 cheaper than last year and the Abarth is $2,580 less expensive. Cabrio models see an even larger price reduction of between $4,605 to $5,205. The Turbo model is now redundant because of the Abarth's price drop, so it will be dropped from the lineup. The 2017 Fiat 500 won't get any of the European styling updates in the US market, but a nice price decrease almost makes it worth it to miss out on some modest changes.
