Makes local premiere at Dubai Motor Show.
At the 2015 Dubai Motor Show, Fiat is showcasing the facelifted 2016 Fiat 500 in its Middle Eastern spec. The updated mini hatchback was first revealed on July 3 and is already being retailed in Europe.
Featuring 1,800 “innovative detail changes”, the new Fiat 500 gets 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 has also gone through a facelift, now sporting 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 gets a 5-inch UConnect infotainment system, which features TomTom Live services and Connected Navigation.
The 2016 Fiat 500 packs a 1.2-liter engine with 69 hp or a 0.9-liter TwinAir engine available in two power tunes: 85 hp or 105 hp. It’s paired to a 6-speed manual or a Magneti-Marelli-developed Dualogic automated manual transmission.
