Features 1,800 “innovative detail changes”

At the 2015 IAA in Frankfurt, FCA is showcasing the first mid cycle refresh for the Fiat 500, which claims to feature 1,800 “innovative detail changes” that further modernizes the “Cinquecento”.

The exterior retains the basic chic silhouette of the outgoing model, but comes with changes such as new headlight clusters with separate LED daytime running lights, longer chrome ‘whiskers and badge’ set above the single slat chrome grille, three dimensional lower intake with chrome fog lamp enclosures, and new LED rear light clusters.

The interior of the 2016 Fiat 500 also underwent a facelift, featuring a re-designed three spoke steering wheel, an updated instrument display, new chrome-plated accents, and nine color combinations for the interior upholstery. It also offers a 5-inch UConnect infotainment system, which features TomTom Live services and Connected Navigation.

Under the hood, the 2016 Fiat 500 packs a 1.2 litre with 69 hp or a 0.9-liter TwinAir engine available in two power tunes: 85 hp or 105 hp. Fiat is also adding a diesel variant for the first time, which is powered by the 1.3-liter diesel Multijet engine delivering 95 PS and emitting only 99 grams per kilometre of CO2. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a Magneti-Marelli-developed Dualogic automated manual transmission.
