    2018 Fiat 500/Abarth

    When is the 2018s coming? I saw a thing online saying they would be at the la auto show?
    I don’t see much info online yet? I think they are going to do a major refresh.
    I hope they improve the radio and add something like Infiniti around view monitor. And upgrade the icon next radio. Also I would like to see an improvement on the engine. What do you guys think or want ?

    Having a degree in product design and always comment on how I would do it or what I would change.
    In the spirit of keeping the three buttons on the middle dash, I would make the left a remote start button, keep the hazard in the middle and the right one be the passenger airbag indicator.
    move the fog light to the left stalk, the sport button next to the gearshift and rear defogger on the climate controls.
    ...I drew this out somewhere, too.
    FCA, if you are reading this, PM me! LOL

    I seriously doubt that it will imported next year. NAFTA negotiations are up in the air and gas prices haven't been increasing all that much. Sales are also down. I hope that I am wrong, but my feelings contributed to me snapping up a 2017 model.

    I wonder if fiat will add safety package to the 500(like lane departure warning) or maybe update the features? What do you think �� they should/ would like for them to add? Not �� things like I want my car to have a microwave. Someone make a comment on my YouTube.

    I recently drove a vehicle equipped with those kinds of features... they are horrible. I don't want to see Fiat or Abarth take the driver further out of the equation. Those lane departure features are for people more interested in their smart phones than what the car is doing on the road.

    But didn't I see somewhere that NA requirements as of 2018,cars in the US have to have a back up camera. I know this new one I have has some kind of back up recognition sensors in the rear bumper.

    Closing in on the end of January 2018 and the FIAT USA website is still showing 2017 models. Definitely going to be a weird year for FIAT.
