Fiat has announced a cosmetic sports package for the Euro-market 500 that slots between the standard version and the Abarth. The package is specifiable on all variants save for the Abarth.

It’s called the 500S, and it gets a subtle bodykit that includes new bumpers and side skirts, as well as some new alloys, a rear spoiler, dark chrome trim and tinted windows.


The interior gets snazzy bucket seats, a gear knob and steering wheel spiced up with red stitching, and the dashboard is adorned with ‘500S’ badges and matt silver trim.

Fiat recently caused a stir (!) with a rather provocative ad for its 500C Abarth in the States. The Abarth-tuned 500 has been quite a hit there – nothing to do with Romanian supermodel Catrinel Menghia, we’re sure.
