What’s New for the 2017 FIAT 500?

In comparison to the 2016 model, the 2017 FIAT 500 has lost two trim levels, the Easy and 1957 Edition, narrowing the focus down to just three trims. However, the FIAT 500 has added three optional packages for the vehicle: the Two-Tone Package, the Sport Black Trim Package, and the Abarth Roof and Mirror Cap Package. The new model has also narrowed its focus to one transmission: a five-speed manual.
