2015 Fiat 500 Gets Tech Updates, Automatic Option For Sporty Models

Follow Viknesh

The Fiat 500 lineup is set to receive a handful of updates for the 2015 model year that should keep the cars competitive against the all-new MINI that’s just gone on sale and a new generation of the Smart Fortwo that’s just around the corner. The headline update is a new seven-inch display screen located behind the steering wheel that allows drivers to easily monitor vehicle-specific info.

While on the home screen, an image of the vehicle is surrounded by information, including distance traveled, gas mileage and range. A parking screen helps drivers while moving in reverse if the vehicle is equipped with Rear Park Assist. Other screen options include a radio screen that displays information about the station selected and a telephone screen showing call information. The screen is standard on the Sport, Lounge, Turbo and Abarth models, and optional on the Pop.

Other updates for 2015 include a new cup holder design, a new USB port, a Bluetooth streaming audio function, and three new exterior colors: Giallo Moderna Perla (modern pearl yellow), Laser Blu (bright metallic blue) and Billet Argento (billet silver). Finally, sporty models like the Turbo and Abarth are now available with a six-speed automatic. A six-speed manual remains standard.
