The new FIAT 500S is available to order in the UK with prices starting from just £12,950 OTR. Designed to appeal to customers who want the compact dimensions, low running costs and cheeky appeal of the FIAT 500 but in a sportier package, the new FIAT 500S has been comprehensively restyled with new sports bumpers front and rear, special side skirts and a rear spoiler, while the door handles, tailgate, “moustache”, mirror fairings and 15-inch alloy wheels are finished in exclusive “Satin Graphite”.

The FIAT 500S is also equipped with front fog lamps, tinted rear windows, a chrome-finish tailpipe, black-grained front air intakes and an eye-catching honeycomb grille. The standard 15-inch alloy wheels with their special “Satin Graphite” finish, and the optional 16-inch alloy wheels with a matt-black diamond treatment, are both new to the range while the colour palette has grown to include Electronica Blue metallic and Marching Green matte.

Inside, the new FIAT 500S is enhanced by black sport seats and a black roof lining which contrast with the door panels and seat edges, which are finished in blue, white or yellow. “Satin Graphite” detailing also features on the dashboard fascia and the special sports steering wheel and the interior can also be trimmed in optional Frau leather with white or light blue details for a splash of additional luxury. A full-colour, seven-inch TFT instrument display is standard on the new 500S, while the FIAT 500S Convertible adds an electric canvas roof with a heated glass rear window.

The dashboard of the new FIAT 500S incorporates FIAT’s new Uconnect™ seven-inch HD LIVE touchscreen with  a high resolution display as standard equipment. This system offers a wide range of functions, including Uconnect™ LIVE services, Bluetooth hands-free phone calling, voice recognition and a multitude of entertainment options including Bluetooth streaming, USB connectivity, a 3.5mm auxiliary jack, DAB digital radio and FM/AM radio. The system can be upgraded with the latest 3D TomTom navigation system for an additional £250.

The exclusive BeatsAudio™ sound system also debuts on the new FIAT 500S, priced at just £300. Developed in conjunction with Beats by Dr. Dre, the seven-speaker system has a total output of 440 watts and features a digital amplifier integrating an advanced equalisation algorithm, which can recreate the entire sound spectrum that an artist experiences during studio recording.

In terms of safety, the FIAT 500S is equipped with seven airbags as standard equipment, including a driver’s side knee bag, as well as ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution) and a sophisticated ESC (Electronic Stability Control) system with ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), Hill Holder and HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistance) to assist in emergency braking.

Four engines power the FIAT 500S so there’s a version for every taste and budget: The 69hp 1.2-litre petrol and the 85hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol are both available with a five-speed manual or optional five-speed Dualogic automated manual transmission, while the 105hp 0.9 TwinAir petrol is fitted with a 6-speed manual as standard. FIAT remains the only brand to offer diesel-powered cars – FIAT 500, FIAT 500S and FIAT Panda – in the segment and the 95hp 1.3 litre MultiJet II in the 500S employs the best of today's small diesel engineering technology to reduce emissions to just only 89 grams of CO2 per kilometre and offer an official combined-cycle fuel efficiency figure of 83.1mpg.

The new FIAT 500S is on sale in the UK now, priced from £12,950 OTR when powered by the 1.2-litre 69hp petrol engine. The 85hp TwinAir version is priced from £14,250 OTR while the TwinAir 105hp is just £14,730 OTR. The FIAT 500S 1.3 MultiJet II 95hp is priced from £15,350 OTR.
