2016 Fiat 500 (facelift) revealed officially

July 3, 2015

Following a series of spyshots over the past few months, the 2016 Fiat 500 (facelift) has been officially revealed. Although it looks nearly identical to the one currently sold, the Italian car maker has made “no fewer than 1,800” changes. It can be had as a hatchback or convertible, and in three trim levels at launch: Pop, Popstar and Lounge.

The biggest change in the interior is availability of the new Uconnect infotainment system. It can be had with a 5″ screen on Pop/Popstar trim and with a 5″ touchscreen on Lounge trim. The instrument panel can be opted with a 7″ TFT display. Also new, are the seats which are made with even more ergonomic materials now. Nine colour combinations will be available for upholstery.
