Perhaps I have missed it, but have any pictures been posted of the interior, or one similar to ours? I understand they are black cloth with red stitching. Am I correct? Also, what color is the dash? Is the interior the same for all three colors? What is the stereo offered? Any pictures or information on the interior would be greatly appreciated.

Hi johnReid,

Here's what Fiat published. The first is US specs. The last was sent to Canadian Prima owners, it is somewhat different. These should link to my photo album where you can view them as larger images.

Chris, do you know if the under seat storage for the passenger front seat is available on the regular 500? That was a feature I loved about the Euro cars.

I'm interested in the sport trim of the three, based on the fact that I can have either the automatic or the manual if I choose and have a bit firmer suspension too.

The sport seems to have the best blend of features and performance of the three IMO.

Fiat500USA, the Canadian PE flyer lists tire pressure monitoring system and hill start assist. I don't remember any of those being mentioned for the US version. Do you know if we will get those? If not, since it hasn't been communicated to US PE owners, what's the reason that we're left out. If we do get it, how comes that Fiat didn't list those features?
Thanks

It's there, both are listed on Chris' Prima materials as he's from NY if I'm not mistaken and the tire pressure monitor is also listed in the standard Pop, Sport and Lounge models, but I've not seen the hill hold feature mentioned, nor the under seat storage for the front passenger seat.

Not sure about the hill assist, but as far as the tire pressure monitor it is requried by law for all cars sold in the US (since the 2008 model year if I'm not mistaken).

I know the under-seat storage is not available in Europe on cars with either; leather, interscope stereo or passenger seat memory. The US car, not sure yet. I've heard nothing of hill holder for the US.

Working on getting an interview with someone who would know. Plans for the Detroit show fell through (scheduling problems on my end).

Where are the so called 14 available interiors? I only see about 5 on the Fiat website. One is black/red and the other red/black. I can believe the poor quality of the marketing material let alone it completeness. Where, if at all, can I go to look at all of the interior color combinations? I am in the good ole US of A!

Thanks for your time and attention.

I notice that and I understand one can buy other interior colors through the Mopar store for the 500/500C and I know that in Europe, you could configure the car from the factory in several colors for the interiors, such as blue or red, even in the sport and that included leather.

Not sure why we are stuck with the brown, black, red interiors and 2 ambient choices (black or ivory, but only in the Pop though) and only in some colors.

I've also noticed the website is being updated as the spare is now available as a separate option for the Pop sedan due to how the car is configured, that is, the car gets a Bose premium audio as an upgrade from the standard 6 speaker setup, and includes amp and subwoofer whereas the standard speakers don't but the automatic climate controls are not available even

If you go to the fiat usa web site and go to the build you own section, you will find there are unique interior color combinations for each trim level. For example there are there are two different reds, (Pella and tessuto) that can be matched with a contrasting white or black. But the pella is only available on the Lounge and the tessuto is only available on the Pop. I did a quick peruse of the three trim levels of the 500 and I counted at least 11 different combinations, not including the 500C.

Hope this helps.

True if you go with the Lounge and Pop, the red is available, but in the pop with black or white ambiance, it's cloth seats, the Lounge, it's red leather in either the white or black ambiance.

The Sport only offers the brown and black/black or black/gray color choices however.
