Fiat is celebrating the Fiat 500 passing 100,000 sales in the UK by releasing a brand new range of colours alongside upgraded interior trims.
A design upgrade will see a 'short-fin' antenna for the Fiat 500, alongside 15-inch alloys included as standard. Fiat says that the interior upgrades will "better match the exterior".
The new trims will feature chocolate brown/ivory fabric and grey/black fabric trim. A new two-tone leather trim is also expected to be released toward the end of the year, which will replace the model's current leather finish.
The Fiat 500's six new colours are imaginatively-named, and include the Countrypolitan Yellow and New Age Cream solid paints, Groove Metal Grey, Epic Blue, Chillout Purple and Idol Pink metallics.
All colour and interior finishes are available to order now. Fiat has also confirmed that the 500 will be keeping its £9,960 price tag for the 1.2 litre Pop despite the revisions. The the 500CbyGucci TwinAir costs £19,060.
Fiat is looking to keep the 500 fresh, as the car will be up against the Vauxhall Adam when it's finally released in the new year. The Vauxhall Adam is available with a choice of three engines (1.2-litre (69 bhp), 1.4-litre (86 bhp) or 1.4 litre (98 bhp)), and is expected to be available from £11,000.
