Diesel ignites with own version of Fiat 500
Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.
You can be forgiven if you mistake the Fiat 500 to be a living thing. DIESEL, a famous brand known for its line of clothing hasn't stitched pants for the 500, but has given it a range of colors and bits which enhances its looks and 10,000 such examples will be available in the market over the next couple of years, and we bet each one has been booked by now.
The Sport version is the canvas on which three exterior colors (olive green, black and brown) have been painted. Add-ons like aluminum trim on the bumpers, the protective strips on the door, the yellow brake calipers and the Diesel insignias help distinguish the car from the normal version.
Interiors have gone through the boutique with special upholstery fabrics made from denim while the Diesel brand logo is seen on the dashboard and the gear knob. The 500 by Diesel will be available with two petrol engines, a 69HP 1.2-liter and a 100HP 1.4-liter unit as well as a 1.3 Mutlijet turbo diesel delivering 75HP.
