Fiat has sold more than two million units of the revived 500 in the last ten years, with a good number of them being special edition models.
The latest one is called Collezione, and you may be tempted to think that it’s not new. Now, you would be partially right, because the 500 Collezione already debuted this spring, but Fiat says this one is dedicated to autumn.
It’s available in hatchback and convertible body styles and sports a two-tone Opera Burgundy and Carrara Grey finish, called ‘Brunello’, which “evokes the glamour of fashion and the colors of autumn”. The car can also be ordered in other paint jobs, such as Opera Burgundy, Carrara Grey, Vesuvio Black and the new Cortina Grey.
All Fiat 500 Collezione cars sit on standard 16-inch alloy wheels and have a ‘Collezione’ badge on the boot lid. Described as a “hint to the world of fashion”, the interior has black and burgundy pinstripe seats with black vinyl top, copper accents on the dashboard, ‘500’ logo embroidered in burgundy and special black floor mats with the ‘Collezione’ lettering.
The Uconnect 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and TomTom maps, Beats Audio system and others are offered at an extra cost, whereas parking sensors, dusk-sensing headlights and automatic windshield wipers are standard.
As for engines, the Fiat 500 Collezione is only available with a 69 PS (68 hp / 51 kW) 1.2-liter unit and an 85 PS (84 hp / 63 kW) TwinAir 0.9-liter one.
