Fiat 500 renews itself and expands its line-up with the top-of-the-range Star and Rockstar versions
Twelve years after its second launch, the Fiat 500 continues to take Europe by storm: just think that in 2018 it registered its best progressive total ever with almost 194,000 new vehicle registrations and last March it confirmed its status as the best-selling vehicle in its category, and the second best-selling car for the whole quarter, coming runner-up only to the equally popular Fiat Panda.
More elegant, stylish and technological: the new Fiat 500 range is coming to showrooms now with more than a few updates. These include the two top-of-the-range new versions: the sophisticated 500 Star for drivers seeking elegance on the road in its purest form and the bold 500 Rockstar, for those who adore the car's sportier, wilder side.
Personality, style and exclusivity: the three unique characteristics of a car that is even easier to choose today. Indeed, starting from the 500 Pop - the "gate" that opens into the 500 world - the customer can immediately choose between two very different versions: one with a more elegant feel and the other with a sportier vibe. The first version comes in the stylish Lounge trim, expressing its personality most effectively in the new Star version, whereas the sportier spirit comes through in the bold 500 Sport and in the new and even more dynamic Rockstar.
The range of standard equipment included with both new versions includes the Uconnect 7" HD LIVE touchscreen radio - which has Apple CarPlay support and is compatible with Android Auto. Additionally, from today, this sophisticated infotainment system is also supplied as standard on the 500 Lounge and on the 500 Sport, which also introduces new upholsteries.
Finally, the special 500 series "120th Anniversary" completes the new range, the celebratory version which now offers as standard the 440 Watts BeatsAudio premium system.
All the trims of the new 500 are available in the hatchback and cabriolet versions while, customers can choose the 1.200 cc 69 HP petrol version (with Dualogic automatic transmission or manual gears), the 900 cc 85 HP Twin Air engine and the 1.200 cc GPL version with 69 HP (both with manual transmission).
To celebrate the brand's 120th anniversary, Fiat customers who purchase the exclusive versions of the new 500 range will get up to 6 months of Apple Music to stream over 50 million songs ad-free.
To show the new range, Fiat dealers will remain open during the weekend of open doors on 18-19 and 25-26 May.
