Fiat Launches Sporty 500S Version In Geneva

At year’s Geneva Motor Show, Fiat is bringing us a more evolved version of their new 500, called the ‘S’.

What the ‘S’ trim level is meant to reflect is the sportier nature of the refreshed 500, which comes with new bumpers, integrated fog lights, special side skirts and spoiler, rear privacy glass, chrome exhaust tailpipe, black grained front air intakes, as well as a bold rear grille.

Fiat is also making these Satin Graphite 15″ & 16″ diamond black alloys available on request, as the 500S new body colors certainly demand something more exclusive when it comes to wheels.

Customers can order the 500S in either Metallic Azure or Alpine Green, working in contrast with the dark interiors enhanced by the black seats and roof lining.

Inside, the dashboard features a Uconnect 7″ HD LIVE touchscreen with HD display as standard – incorporating features such as LIVE services, Bluetooth hands-free, voice recognition and loads of music options. In addition, the system is available on request with integrated mirroring for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, digital radio (DAB) and 3D integrated TomTom sat-nav.

Also on request, customers can equip their car with the exclusive BeatsAudio system, which offers 440 watts, a digital 8-channel amplifier, two dome tweeters, two 165 mm midwoofers, two full-range 165 mm speakers and one 200 mm subwoofer.

Powering the 500S is a 1.3-liter MultiJet 95 HP unit, capable of taking the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.7 seconds, before maxing out at 180 km/h (111 mph). In terms of fuel consumption, this 500S needs just 3.4 liters of diesel for every 100 km (69 mpg), which is quite an impressive number.

Fiat 500 fans who’d rather have the wind in their hair will probably look towards the 500S Cabrio which can still be enjoyed all year round.
