Following closely behind the new Fiat 500, which was launched in the UK in September last year, comes the new Fiat 500S which has made its first global appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
Compared to the standard Fiat 500, the new Fiat 500S is fitted with sports bumpers, special side skirts and a rear spoiler, while the door handles, tailgate, ‘moustache’, mirror fairings and 15-inch alloy wheels are coated in exclusive “Satin Graphite.”As an extra option, users can have new design 16-inch wheels with matte diamond black treatment. Completing the look is rear privacy glass, a chrome-finish exhaust tailpipe, a bold rear grille and two specific body colours – Electronica Blue and a new matte Green.
Inside, the new Fiat 500S is enhanced by black seats and a black roof lining which perfectly contrast the door panels and seat edges, which are finished in blue, white or yellow. “Satin Graphite” features again on the dashboard fascia and sporty style steering wheel. For a splash of additional luxury the interior can also be trimmed in optional Frau Leather with white or light blue details.A full –colour TFT instrument display with reconfigurable settings is fitted as standard.
Incoporated into the dashboard of the new Fiat 500S is Fiat’s new Uconnect 7-inch HD LIVE touchscreen with table- resembling controls and a high resolution display as standard.This innovative systems offers an impressive array of functions including, Uconnect LIVE services, Bluetooth hands-free system, voice recognition, Bluetooth streaming, USB connection, 3.5mm auxiliary jack, DAB digital and FM/AM radio.

Exclusively debuting on the new Fiat 500S is the BeatsAudio sound system which will be available on all models later in the year. Developed in partnership with Beats by Dr. Dr the seven-speaker system has a total output of 440 watts and provides an advanced sound system similar to that of what an artist experiences during studio recording.
