Fiat Australia has announced two models that wouldn’t look out of place. The new models are called the 500 and 500C Collezione Fall/Winter Edition buzz models. I have no idea what that means to be honest.
But I’m told it’s all about taking inspiration from autumn and winter.
The models are based on the 500 Lounge variant as a base. The seasonal influenced Collezione Fall/Winter Edition scores a two-tone Bordeaux and Grey Solid paint finish. Plus, over $2,900 of extra goodies such as an all-around copper liner and 16” copper alloy wheels
These new models will be on sale from Thursday 1 August. Prices kick off from $21,990 for the hatchback and $25,990 for the drop top. There’s only 30 units available, so you’d want to get your skates on.
Other features include 16” design alloy wheels with copper finish and 16” wheel with black ring, front fog lights, chrome bonnet line and bumper inserts, body colour mirror covers, rear ‘Collezione’ badge, grey soft top (for convertible models only), grey body colour dashboard with copper liner, striped seat inserts, 500 logo and piping on seats plus floor mats with Bordeaux embroidered ‘Collezione’ logo.
Guillaume Drelon, Director, Brand & Product Strategy. “We’re excited to bring a confident, sophisticated variant to the iconic Fiat 500 product line-up with the launch of the designer-centric Collezione Fall/Winter Special Edition, aligning with the Fiat 500’s positioning of being one of the very few fashionable vehicles available in Australia”
“Exuding a distinguished sense of style, the Fiat 500 Collezione Fall/Winter Edition is sure to turn heads, the moody colour palette adorned with pops of copper and offering substantial additional value to customers.”
Based on the Lounge variant, the Fiat 500 and 500C Collezione Fall/Winter Edition will feature a standard new generation 7” UConnect touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 7” TFT Instrument Cluster Display, rear parking sensors, cruise control and automatic climate control.
