PostHeaderIcon Fiat 500X Urbana Edition

The Fiat 500 is, without a doubt, the Italian automaker’s most famous and popular model. Drawing from the legendary and hugely successful model of the same name produced between 1957 and 1975, the modern 500 is a small, quirky little runabout designed for faultless urban transportation duty. The diminutive dimensions assist in tight parking spots, while a fun-loving attitude and nippy suspension set-up make it a blast behind the wheel. Don’t forget a stylish exterior as well. In 2014, Fiat reimagined the 500 as an ultra-compact crossover, and thus, the high-riding 500X was created. Given the popularity of compacts crossovers like the 500X, it makes sense that Fiat is giving it a new aesthetics package. It’s called the Urbana Edition, and it adds unique trim and colors to help it stand out from non-Urbana’d editions.

Based on the Trekking trim level, which Fiat has declared as the most popular trim level for the 500X, the Urbana Edition keeps all the same bits and pieces buyers have come to expect, including a functional interior with lots of space for hauling things, and the option for AWD as well. Mechanically, the Urbana Edition goes unchanged, and still gets the same 2.4-liter gas-burning engine producing 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque through a nine-speed automatic transmission (lower trim levels get a 1.4-liter engine with 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque). If you’re looking for a unique take on this Italian compact crossover, then continue reading for the details.

PostHeaderIcon 2017 Fiat 500X Urbana Edition Announced

Trying to enhance the appeal of the 500-based crossover, Fiat announced the launch of a new special edition version. The 2017 Fiat 500X Urbana Edition comes with features and highlights that are considered to be urbane and cool and trendy. And of course, it costs a lot more than a basic 500X.

Whereas a standard 500X crossover starts at $19,995 MSRP, 2017 Fiat 500X Urbana Edition kicks off at $24,195. The main reason for that is all the cosmetic features that make it easily distinguishable over the standard variants. The main cues include Miron (Metallic Iron) black-painted exterior and interior elements with copper accents. There is also exclusive colors including Grigio Graphite (Graphite Gray), Blue Sky Metallic, Bianco Gelato (White Clear Coat) and Nero Cinema (Black Clear Coat).

To get into more details, the Urbana treatment includes Miron black-painted mirror caps, door handles, tail-lamp surrounds, liftgate bezel, fascias, and sill moldings with copper-accented 500X logo. You also get 18 inch matte black and Miron wheels with copper center caps, plus black side roof rails and dark headlamp surrounds. The interior highlights include unique seats with black Castiglio chevron-patterned fabric and copper embroidered 500 logos, a black textured instrument panel with a copper 500 logo, a black-painted center console, and Miron-painted radio and vent bezels.

2017 Fiat 500X Urbana Edition is available as a package on the Trekking trim level for both 2-and 4WD models. No mechanical upgrade is included, but you can choose from a number of equipment packages.

PostHeaderIcon FCA Could Be Bought by a Chinese Automaker

Formed in 2014, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) alliance has been doing very good these past three years, which is why Sergio Marchionne is on the lookout to either sell the company or make another merger with a big brand. FCA was refused by General Motors back in 2015 and Marchionne’s attempts to find a new collaboration have been unsuccessful so far. However, it seems that FCA is actually on the brink of finding a new owner. According to new reports, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has received at least one offer in August from a “well-known Chinese automaker.”

That’s the word from Automotive News, which claims that the over was slightly higher than FCA’s current market value, but the Italian-American alliance rejected it for not being enough. There’s no detailed information as to what Chinese automaker made the offer, but speculation has it that FCA is negotiating with more than one company. Also, a source close to FCA said that company executives have traveled to China to meet with Great Wall Motor Co., while different sources claim talks with Dongfeng Motor Corp., Zhejiang Geely, and Guangzhou Automobile Group.

PostHeaderIcon Hoonigan Names New Female Racer For Fiat 124 Spider Abarth Rally Car

For the past few months, Hoonigan and Fiat have conducted a talent search to find the “Next Female Hoonigan” racer. Today, it was announced that the search was over and a winner has been found. Taking the title is Sara Price, a 24-year-old hot shoe hailing from Canyon Lake in Southern California. Price started in motocross racing before taking on trophy trucks and side-by-side racers, and will bring that experience to rally racing in the Hoonigan Fiat 124 competition machine.

Price managed to secure her ride by beating five other finalists in a three-month long competition, which started with more than 150 individual entries from across the nation. To take the win, Price first had to take a road trip to the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving in Phoenix, Arizona, before continuing on to the Gridlife Music & Motorsports festival at Gingerman Raceway in South Haven Michigan. Eventually, Price showed she had what it took to be the next Hoonigan racer, and subsequently took the wheel of a 400-horsepower turbocharged Fiat 124 at the Mt. Washington hillclimb event in New Hampshire. Specs on the car include a six-speed pneumatic sequential transmission and anti-lag system, which is the right combo when tackling the 7.4 miles and 4,500 feet of elevation change at the hillclimb. Check out the video of Price’s run by hitting play above, including a glimpse at all the hard work it takes to run at the front at such a prestigious event.

Fiat 500 60th

You may not have noticed it, but the past few days and weeks there was a huge party going on in Italy for one of the most iconic things ever to come out of that country. And no, we’re not talking about Monica Bellucci. It was the 60th anniversary of the birth of the Fiat 500 city car, and it was marked with 10 days of celebrations.

There have been many parades and driving events covering the best part of Italy in journeys that culminated in a large gala in Turin where they unveiled the Fiat 500 stamp. But the 60th birthday of Fiat 500 was not all about gatherings and driving and having fun. It also marked a couple of fairly significant milestones, namely the delivery of the two-millionth Fiat 500 and setting a world record for the most number of cars delivered in 48 hours. Another remarkable achievement was the addition of the 500 to the Museum of Modern Art in New York as a permanent display. In short, it was one helluva birthday, a sort of super sweet sixty!

“The story of the Fiat 500 will continue thanks to the commitment of owners, collectors and club members, the pride of Fiat workers and the new Italian postage stamp which has just been dedicated to it – a symbolic gift, a minuscule work of art and a homage reserved only for the most beloved and recognisable icons, which sums up the car perfectly. Popular and democratic, but also sophisticated and collectable, the Fiat 500 will continue to remember the roads that it has travelled and looks forward to those that are still ahead.”

PostHeaderIcon Tom Hanks Fiat 126p with Carlex Interior

Screen legend Tom Hanks is not really known for his love of cars or planes or anything really exciting. I mean, the dude is fond of old typewriters, so, you know, that explains why the most prominent car projects he’s involved in is that of a Fiat 126p!

Tell you the truth Tom Hanks is not really involved in this per se. This special Fiat 126p is the car he’s going to get as part of his involvement in Bielsko-Bia?a for Tom Hanks charity. We can see how Forrest Gump might like such a thing, but not Sully, or Captain Philips, or Captain Miller.

In any case, Tom Hanks’s Fiat 126p is probably the finest example of this car anywhere in the world, and what’s more it features a bespoke interior from Carlex Design, one of the most respected names in the business. There isn’t anything flashy or extravagant about this cabin since, well, it’s a 126p cabin. But Carlex has used the finest material for the trims and upholstery, and even tapped into Mr. Hanks’ love of typewriters by making buttons and switchers plated with silver flakes to resemble those of an old typewriter. That ought to be enough to make this thing a collectible item.

PostHeaderIcon 2-Millionth Fiat 500 Delivered in Germany

2 millionth fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is having a marvelous time these days with anniversaries coinciding with milestones. While the car was busy celebrating its 60th birthday in Turin, news arrived from Germany that the 2-millionth production unit of it was just delivered to a customer. 

Now, the two million units are of the new generation of the car alone. If we were to add all Fiat 500 cars sold during its 60 years of presence in the market the figure would be more than six million. The city car has always enjoyed worldwide popularity, from the U.S. to Iran to China, but it’s probably nowhere more coveted than in home continent of Europe. In fact, Germany where the 2-millionth unit was delivered is one of the biggest 500 markets with more than 200,000 of these cars on the roads.

The milestone Fiat 500 is a 500S model in Passione Red with front and rear bumpers in a sporty design, built-in fog lights, bespoke spoilers and side skirts in addition to exclusive “Satin Graphite” finish accents (such as the door and tailgate handles, the mirror caps and rims), tinted rear windows, chrome tailpipe, “black-grained” front air vents and an assertive honeycomb lower grille. The car also features 16 inch rims, the 0.9 TwinAir 105 HP engine, and standard Uconnect 7″ HD LIVE touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat’s Feeling Mighty Generous With a Record-Breaking Giveaway

In case Oprah Winfrey decides to do another car giveaway in the near future, she’s going to have a tough time beating out what Fiat and an Italian supermarket chain known as Esselunga. Together, the two Italian companies did something that earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records: they gave away a staggering 1,495 Fiat 500s as part of Esselunga’s 60th anniversary, a staggering total made even more impressive by the fact that all these models are actually special editions in their own right.

Winners of the Essalunga-hosted competition all dropped to Fiat’s Mirafiori plant to take delivery of their new special edition 500 models, referred to officially as the Fiat 500 Essalunga. The model is based on the 69-horsepower, 1.2-liter variant of the Fiat 500 and comes with an exclusive Pastel White body paint finish, an Ivory-dressed interior, and a set of 14-inch wheels. In addition to these features, the car also receives a trove of equipment, including seven airbags, climate control, Uconnect 5 infotainment system, AUX-IN and USB ports, steering wheel controls, and LED daytime running lights. Needless to say, all 1,495 cars that were part of the giveaway at the Fiat plant were collected in less than two days by grateful owners from all over Italy. I’d be grateful too if was part of that list.

Before you jump to conclusions and think Fiat has suddenly become the world’s top auto maker in sales, let us point out that the delivery of the 1,495 Fiat 500 cars in less than two days – which is now a Guinness world record – was a premeditated plan carried out with the help of Italian supermarket Esselunga. And they didn’t sell these, they gave them away!

Still, the fact that Italian managed to be punctual enough to deliver these Fiat 500s to their new owner in less than 48 hours is a remarkable feat. The original plan to giveaway 1,520 Fiat 500s, but some people didn’t show up to collect. Those who did came from more or less all over Italy: Lazio, Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Liguria, Lombardy and Piedmont. And they assembled with their Pastel White Fiat 500 cars to create some memorable scenes.

The Fiat 500 “Esselunga” was developed specifically for for the competition in association with the Fiat Design Centre, with customised personalisation. Based on the Lounge 1.2 69 HP trim level, it features the exclusive “Esselunga” badge on the pillar, the numbered plaque in the interior, chrome mirror cabs and specific “Color Therapy” 14″ wheels. The Fiat 500 that starred in the competition is in Pastel White colour with Ivory interior. The standard outfit is lavish, with seven airbags, climate control, Uconnect 5″ Radio LIVE infotainment system, AUX-IN and USB port, steering wheel controls and LED daytime running lights.

PostHeaderIcon Abarth 695 Rivale

The Abarth 500 has been on the receiving end of some interesting special edition models in the past. We’ve seen the Abarth 695 Biposto Record, the 595 Yamaha Factory Racing Edition, and the 500 Track Experience, among others. None of them, though, can lay claim to the title of being the “most sophisticated Abarth ever.” That distinction, according to Abarth itself, now rests on the shoulders of the 695 Rivale Special Edition.

Developed specifically to celebrate the company’s close ties to yacht maker Riva, the 695 Rivale is the physical embodiment of the premium luxury that goes into the craft of building those sea vessels. Safe to say, that “most sophisticated Abarth ever” title fits the 695 Rivale. It’s inundated with aesthetic features that shine a big spotlight on the nautical theme of the compact car. Inside and out, the 695 Rivale is decked to the brim with luxury, the kind you expect from any one of the yachts that Riva has built in its 175-year history. The special edition Abarth 695 doesn’t pack any power or performance upgrades, but that’s an inconsequential omission when you compare it to the quantity and quality of cosmetic additions given to the hot hatch. There’s no word yet on how many models Abarth plans to build of the 695 Rivale, but another special edition model, the Abarth 695 Rivale 175th Anniversary, is limited to just 350 units, divided into 175 units for the coupe model and another 175 for the cabriolet version.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat 500 Abarth Ares by Pogea Racing

The Fiat 500 Abarth is a cute little ride, isn’t it? It certainly looks the part of one, but being cute and cuddly isn’t the only thing appealing about the 500. It’s also understatedly customizable, which is why we’ve seen so many special edition iterations of the car, not to mention tuning programs from some of the best tuners in the business. Pogea Racing counts itself in the latter group, and it has a real doozy of a kit for the 500 that gives the subcompact hatchback an output of 405 horsepower and 328 pound-feet of torque. Seems fitting then that Pogea Racing has dubbed this creation as “Ares,” after the Greek god of war. This Fiat 500 Abarth is ready to rumble with the best of them.

The program has more than just a fancy name and ridiculous power at its disposal. It also has an extensive menu of carbon fiber parts for the exterior, a well-dressed interior that brings some life to the hatchback’s cabin, and suspension upgrades to help the car’s 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder handle all that extra power.

The bad news is that this isn’t a program that Pogea Racing is producing in big quantities. On the contrary, the tuner only plans to build five such 500 Ares models and the cost of building one doesn’t come cheap. The upgrades to the engine alone cost more than the car itself so you can imagine what the whole thing will fetch for, donor car and all.

Then again, a 405-horsepower Fiat 500 Abarth doesn’t come cheap, nor should it.

Much has been made in the automotive press about the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider’s close relationship with the Mazda Miata. But the so-called “Fiata” is no mere badge-engineered Miata. In some ways, the 124 is better than the Miata with which it shares its chassis and a production line.

The Fiat 124 Spider may be a new car on the surface, having first been introduced at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show. But there’s more to the lightweight two-door roadster than what meets the eye. For instance, the 124 Spider may consider the Mazda MX-5 Miata as a direct rival, but the two so-called competitors have more in common than people think, including the fact that they share the same underpinnings. Here’s another surprising fact about the 124 Spider: it wasn’t supposed to exist. Yep, the framework that led to the development of the 124 Spider was supposed to be for an Alfa Romeo roadster. But FCA, owners of both Fiat and Alfa Romeo, ultimately decided to give it to the Fiat. And so, the Fiat 124 Spider was born.

Today, the 124 Spider has been a busy sports car for Fiat. It’s been featured numerous times in various special edition variants. That now includes two versions of the car that will be on hand at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. One of those models is the Abarth 124 Spider Scorpione, which our colleague Jonathan Lopez featured a few days ago. The other is this one: the Fiat 124 Spider Europa.

Developed to celebrate the launch of the original, Pininfarina-designed 124 Spider that swept many enthusiasts off their feet back in 1981, the 124 Spider Europa gets its fair share of unique features, not the least of which is a body finish that Fiat describes as the “ultimate color that identifies Italian sporty two-seaters.” The special edition roadster also gets components from Mopar and a slew of exclusive touches that have been thrown in to highlight the car’s celebratory special edition status.

All these items add up to create an impressive two-door roadster that does its predecessor and its legacy proud.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat 500X S-Design Special

There once was a time when a high-riding Fiat 500 would’ve amounted to some form of ridicule. The 500, after all, has been around for 60 years and at no point did it venture past being a small compact car. But time has a way of flipping long-standing narratives in the auto industry, and no more is that more evident than the launch of the Fiat 500X back in 2015. Essentially a small crossover version of the 500, the 500X checks off some boxes that the traditional 500 can’t. It’s bigger, more spacious, and provides a fresh alternative to the established compact city car. Ahead of the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the 500X will be well-represented at the event with a special edition model called the 500X S-Design Special.

Mind you, this isn’t exactly unchartered territory for the biggest variant of the Fiat 500. We’ve seen it get an Opening Edition in the past and it’s also been a staple in SEMA for the past few years. But the S-Design Special is different, not only because it’s Geneva-bound, but because it’s also arguably the most dressed-up version of the Fiat 500X that we’ve seen so far.

Okay, so it’s not exactly dripping with exclusive features, but it does have a lot of unique qualities unto itself. It has a new paint finish and a slew of unique exterior and interior details that help shape the exclusivity attached to this model. It also has tinted windows, which apparently is significant enough to warrant a mention in the Italian automaker’s press release.

Altogether, these features help create the identity of the Fiat 500X S-Design Special Edition. For what it’s worth, we’re all going to see how appealing the special edition 500X is in the eyes of customers since Fiat plans to open orders for the model in June 2017, a few months after it debuts in Geneva.

PostHeaderIcon Fiat Tipo S-Design

Using a name that dates back to 1988, the Fiat Tipo returned to the market in 2015, after a 20-year hiatus. Designed to replace both the Linea and Bravo, the Tipo is offered in three body styles — sedan, hatchback, and wagon. All three versions are already available in showrooms and, for 2017, Fiat is launching a new model. Dubbed S-Design, it features a few sportier elements on the outside and unique features inside, giving it a distinct personality. The S-Design upgrade will be available for both the hatchback and wagon and the former will make its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Launched alongside other special-edition Fiats, especially 500 hatchbacks, the Tipo S-Design is actually a trim level that will probably become the most expensive in the lineup. But, while the exterior and interior is stands out by means of extra features, the drivetrains carry over unchanged. And the fact that Fiat isn’t offering the base gasoline and diesel engines in the S-Design is confirmation that the new model is set to become the range-topping Tipo.

There’s no word on pricing and availability yet, but the Tipo S-Design should go on sale in all European markets where the Italian compact is already available.
