- Fiat 500 Collezione coming in UK with exclusive colours
- Two versions, convertible or hatchback-plus- sunroof
- ‘Striking new liveries, pinstripe fabric interiors’
LONDON, England – A Fiat 500 Collezione special edition has been launched in the UK in a suitably (northern) Autumn guise with a new combination of colours, materials and details.
”The 500 Collezione,” its maker says, ”will win over anyone who wants to stand out with distinctive flair and who loves cool looks and style without compromise.”
OK, that sounds typically Italian… here’s more.
There are two versions, each with a grey soft top… a hatchback with a fixed sun-roof or exclusive convertible two-tone Avantgarde Bordeaux and Tech House Grey combo called “Brunello” that, Fiat says, ”evokes the glamour of fashion and the colours of autumn”.
SPECIAL KEY-COVER OPTION
The exterior lines, the automaker adds, are embellished with chromed trim on the bonnet and a copper-coloured beauty line to match the finish of the standard 16” alloy wheel rims. To seal the identitiy, there’s a chromed “Collezione” badge on the boot lid.
A special copper colour key-cover sporting the “Collezione” badge is available as a Mopar option.
The new Fiat 500 has parking, rain and sunset sensors as well as specific black mats featuring embroidered with a burgundy “Collezione”.
Other options include Uconnect HD LIVE radio on a 19cm screen that includes Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM compatibility, satnav, and Beats Audio hi-fi.
The cars will have a 1.2-litre 52kW engine and a choice of manual or auto gearbox, the latter with paddle shift.
‘ENDURING ITALIAN ELEGANCE’
”The Fiat 500,” its maker says, ”keeps up with trends but never goes out of fashion.
”The Collezione is appearing in a new collection of colours yet iis as authentic and relevant as ever, celebrating style and design while remaining an enduring symbol of Italian elegance and creativity.”
Prices in the UK will start at the equivalent (Oct 2018) of R267 000.
