The new Fiat 500 Collezione special edition launches this weekend in a new Autumn guise. Available with an exclusive new combination of colours, materials and details, the 500 Collezione will win over anyone who wants to stand out with distinctive flair, and loves cool looks and style without compromise.
The new palette of seductively elegant tones
Available in two versions, with grey soft top, the new 500 Collezione sports unique and original liveries, including the striking hatchback with standard fixed sunroof or exclusive convertible two-tone Avantgarde Bordeaux and Tech House Grey combo called "Brunello" that evokes the glamour of fashion and the colours of autumn. The car is also available in Avantgarde Bordeaux, Tech House and Crossover Black. The brand-new Cortina Grey is appearing for the first time on this special edition. The exterior lines are embellished by a chrome trim on the bonnet and a copper-coloured beauty line, which matches the finish of the standard 16-inch alloy wheels. Finally, the elegance of the car is sealed by the chrome-plated "Collezione" badge which adds a stylish touch on the boot and reasserts the continuity of this model with the spring version.
A special copper colour key cover sporting the "Collezione" badge is also offered as an accessory by Mopar.
Style, technology and engines
The interiors also hint to the world of fashion in the pinstripe fabric interiors with techno leather inserts, Bordeaux 500 logo and black piping. A copper-coloured line stands out against the body coloured dashboard and echos the exterior beauty line. The new Fiat 500 also comes as standard with parking sensors and rain and dusk sensors for added comfort, practicality and safety. Black specific floor mats featuring the embroidered "Collezione" logo in burgundy are also standard.
The 500 Collezione also comes with a host of optional features, such as Uconnect 7-inch HD LIVE radio, with Apple CarPlay integration and Android AutoTM compatibility, integrated navigation and Beats Audio Hi-Fi system for a premium listening experience.
The new Fiat 500 Collezione is available exclusively with the 1.2-litre 69hp engine, and can also be optioned with the Dualogic gearbox and paddle shift.
Authenticity at its heart
The Fiat 500 keeps up with trends but never goes out of fashion. The new Fiat 500 Collezione is appearing in a new collection of colours and yet it is as authentic and relevant as ever, celebrating style and design while remaining an enduring symbol of Italian elegance and creativity.
The 500's design has inspired artists and fashion designers to create memorable special editions and prove that such a well-loved car can bring together different creative worlds. The previous special editions include 500 by Diesel which was the first of a long series and was launched exactly 10 years ago, 500C by Gucci in 2011, 500 Riva in 2016 and the 500-60esimo and Anniversario created to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of the iconic Fiat. Not unlike the most prestigious fashion houses, Fiat is also presenting two fashion collections to reflect the seasons, with the new 500 Collezione taking the place of the model presented in spring.
The new Fiat 500 Collezione will be available to order from 13 October with prices starting from £14,060 OTR. For more information on the new Fiat 500 Collezione please visit www.fiat.co.uk or to locate your nearest Fiat retailer visit www.fiat.co.uk/retailers.
