2012 Fiat 500 Sport

The Fiat brand marked its return to the North American market with the reveal of the 2012 Fiat 500 (Cinquecento) at the 2010 Los Angeles International Auto Show. With its beautiful Italian styling, timeless functionality, efficient design and innovative technology - the same attributes that made the original version a timeless icon - the new Fiat 500 is relevant for an entirely new generation of drivers.

"The Fiat 500 has always been the right car at the right time," said Laura Soave, Head of Fiat Brand North America. "The new Fiat 500 now brings something truly unique to one of the fastest growing segments in North America, delivering Italian-by-design function, value and efficiency intelligently tailored for our market."

Like the original Cinquecento, the new 2012 Fiat 500 showcases the Fiat brand's ingenuity to build world-class small cars that ignite a spirit of the times through simple design, beautiful craftsmanship and timeless value. As a result, the Fiat 500 has continued to surprise and delight customers worldwide for more than 50 years.

Modernizing the successful formula from its past, the new Fiat 500 caters to an entirely new generation of Americans who want their vehicle to be as engaging, individualized, ecologically responsible and technologically savvy as they are.

For the driving enthusiast who demands Italian style with sport-tuned suspension and more convenience features, the new Fiat 500 Sport model encompasses modified springs, shock tuning, steering calibration and exhaust tuning to deliver a more firm ride and responsive handling. The Sport model also includes a manual transmission and (in addition to the Fiat 500 Pop features) distinctively styled front and rear fascias with larger 'honeycomb' grilles and flared aerodynamic treatment.

Between its unique 16-inch aluminum wheels with Mineral Gray painted pockets and all-season tires, the Fiat 500 Sport incorporates new bodyside sill cladding and a liftgate-mounted roof spoiler for a sporty appearance. Completing this athletic vehicle's design theme are Performance Red painted brake calipers attached to a sport-tuned suspension, chromed exhaust tip and fog lamps. Inside, the new Fiat 500 Sport features unique sport-styled seating in a Gray/Black interior environment, a BOSE Energy Efficient Series audio system with six premium speakers and subwoofer, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, Blue & Me Handsfree Communication technology with USB port and iPod control capability.

Designed for the Metro

The new 2012 Fiat 500 Sport features city-friendly proportions and iconic Cinquecento cues, wrapped in modern Italian styling that conveys simplicity and strength.

Thanks to its short overhangs, bodyside made up of several superimposed layers and 'shell-like' roof, the new Fiat 500 Sport features unmistakable proportions and a number of aesthetic features to give it an 'appealing' air while conveying solidity and robustness.

With its signature 'whiskers and logo' face, new circular projector bi-halogen headlamps and lower fog lamps, the 2012 Fiat 500 Sport combines the family resemblance of the latest Fiat models and the distinctive elements of the original Cinquecento in stylistic harmony. The rear of the 2012 500 is stylized with its new signature chromed license-plate brow, a motif from the original Cinquecento that was inspired by a bicycle saddle.
