US-spec 2017 Fiat 500 looks cooler with new appearance packages
The new styling options are aimed at disguising the city car's age
Fiat has released three new custom appearance options for the 2017 500 city car in the United States.
Aimed at keeping the car relevant until the new-generation model arrives stateside, the three new styling packs bear the self-explanatory names of Sport Black Trim Package, Two-Tone Package, and Abarth Roof, Mirror Cap and Body Stripe Package.
Available on the 2017 Fiat 500 Pop for $1,295, the "Sport Black Trim Appearance Package" features body-color sport fascias and fog lamps, smoked headlights, side sill ground effects, as well as several black elements including the roof, mirror caps, spoiler, taillight frame, and 16-inch aluminum wheels.
Inside, the pack brings cloth bucket seats with silver accent stitching, an armrest for front passengers, and a black bezel on the instrument panel.
Also offered for the Pop trim is the "Two-Tone Appearance Package," which starts at $295 and allows customers to combine Nero (black), Rosso (red) or Bianco (white) accent roof and mirror caps with the entire color palette available for the bodywork.
Finally, the "Abarth Roof, Mirror Cap and Body Stripe Appearance Package" is only available on the Fiat 500 Abarth for $495. The pack offers a secondary roof color choice of Nero (black), Rosso (red), Rhino (gray) or Bianco (white), with the same colors used as accents for the mirror caps, body-side stripe, roof, and spoiler.
The 2017 Fiat 500 is available in three trim levels (Pop, Lounge, and Abarth), with prices starting at $14,995 for the base model and $19,995 for the Abarth. Additional options available across the range include automatic transmission ($995), sunroof ($795) and Cabrio ($1,495).
