The star of the stand will still be the New Fiat 500, created to face future market challenges while remaining true to its own deep roots. Developed by the Fiat Style Centre, the city car has a refreshed exterior and interior design, which is unmistakably 500 and even more attractive. It has not grown in size but it is packed with more technology, engine versions and customisation ideas: the icon has evolved and further refined the features that have turned it into a masterpiece.

The "S" trim level, the sportier version of the iconic Fiat car, will be given its world première in Geneva. The distinctive look of the 500S includes sportier bumpers, with integrated fog lights at the front, plus special side skirts and spoiler; exclusive "Satin Graphite" paint for the door handles and tailgate, mirror fairings and wheel rims; rear privacy glass, chrome exhaust tailpipe and "black grained" front air intakes, as well as a bold rear grille. Alloy 15" wheel rims with special "Satin Graphite" finish and 16" rims with matt diamond black treatment are also available upon request. The exclusive sportiness of the 500S is also reflected in the new body colours: Metallic Azure and matt Alpine Green, with dark interiors. The seductive appeal of the New 500S is enhanced by the black seats and roof lining that contrast with the door panels and seat edges, which are available in blue, white and yellow. The interior is available on request in Frau leather with white or azure details. In addition, embellishing the passenger compartment, are "Satin Graphite" details on the dashboard fascia and special sports steering wheel.

The dashboard incorporates a UconnectTM 7" HD LIVE touchscreen with tablet effect and HD display, the next frontier of infotainment, as standard equipment. This system implements a wide range of functions, including UconnectTM LIVE services as standard, Bluetooth hands-free system, voice recognition and plenty of music options in addition to FM/AM radio. The driver can connect their multimedia devices via USB or using the 3.5mm auxiliary jack, or stream music from a compatible smartphone using Bluetooth. In addition, the new UconnectTM 7 "HD LIVE is available on request with the integrated mirroring system for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, digital radio (DAB) and a 3D integrated TomTom navigation system. The new Fiat 500S complements the 500 range with the latest audio experience from Beats by Dr. Dre, the system designed to revolutionise the way in which music can be heard inside the vehicle.

On request, the customer can equip their car with the exclusive BeatsAudioTM system developed in conjunction with Beats by Dr Dre. Specifically, the BeatsAudioTM system boasts a total output of 440 watts and features a digital 8-channel amplifier integrating an advanced equalisation algorithm, which can recreate the entire sound spectrum that an artist experiences during studio recording.

The Beats AudioTM sound system consists of 8-channel amplifiers with 440 watts of power; two dome tweeters installed in the front pillars; two 165 mm midwoofers in the front doors; two full-range 165 mm speakers in the rear side panels; and one 200 mm subwoofer in the centre of the luggage compartment, in the spare wheel compartment.
With the 7" TFT screen for the speedometer and driving instruments-standard on the new 500S-the car's dashboard delivers a fully-digital driving experience that nevertheless retains the classic 500 instrument layout, complete with circular cluster and round buttons.
Visitors to the stand can admire a 500S 1.3 MultiJet 95 HP in all-new matt Alpine Green livery, with two-tone black/ivory leather interior. The power unit represents the best of today's small diesel engineering technology: it emits only 89 grams of CO2 per kilometre and meets Euro 6 standards while guaranteeing outstanding performance. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes only 10.7 seconds and the top speed is 180 km/h. It is also fuel-efficient and eco-friendly: 3.4 litres of diesel are needed for 100 kilometres. Finally, a little record: the New 500 is the only car in its segment, together with Fiat Panda, to offer a diesel engine.

The second 500S is a convertible with interiors upholstered in a special black and white fabric. The central seat features a "Texfilm" application with "Sportball" graphics. The seat design is completed with a two-tone embroidered "500" logo in silver and the characteristic "S" motif with white side insert. The Fiat 500S Cabrio inherits all the winning features of the sedan, including compact external dimensions, best-in-class safety, habitability with four comfortable seats and excellent engines in terms of performance, fuel economy and respect for the environment. The silhouette is enhanced by an innovative sliding roof, a marvel of design in its own right.

The soft top of the Fiat 500S Cabrio stands out for its elegant, electrically controlled movement and its impressively finished and carefully selected technical features, from the glass rear window to the third brake light built into the soft top itself. Additionally, the Fiat 500S Cabrio retains the solid sides of the classic version and can therefore be enjoyed all year round.
