The 500 Mirror special series, dedicated to the millennials, who love technology and are always connected, was presented to the public at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new state-of-the-art smartphone integration systems are debuting on the Fiat 500 Mirror and on the MY17.
Apple CarPlay, the smarter and safer way to use your iPhone while driving, will be available for the first time in combination with UconnectTM 7" HD LIVE touchscreen radio.
Android AutoTM, the simple and user-friendly way to use your AndroidTM smartphone integrating it with UconnectTM 7" HD LIVE touchscreen radio, is also appearing for the first time.
Besides marking the sixtieth anniversary of the Fiat 500, 2017 also sees the debut of the Fiat 500 Mirror, the new version targeted at the millennials, who love new technologies and want to drive a car that is always connected and packed with contents. Standard equipment on the 500 Mirror includes UconnectTM 7" HD LIVE touchscreen with Bluetooth, USB-AUX IN ports and integrated controls on the leather steering wheel. More specific and detailed information is available on the local press websites.
The most exciting innovation is the introduction of state-of-the-art smartphone integration system on the 500 Mirror and the MY17, for the first time on the Fiat range. This means that users can access the main applications of their smartphones directly on the 7" screen of the UconnectTM system integrated on the central console. The Fiat 500 MY2017 is enhanced with important technology and driving safety features, such as Speed Limiter (standard throughout the range), Cruise Control and rain & dusk sensor (on demand).
With Apple CarPlay support, the smarter, safer way to use your iPhone in the car, drivers can get directions optimised for traffic conditions, make and receive calls, access text messages, and listen to music, all in a way that lets them stay focused on the road. The Android Auto integration also allows drivers to manage contents and the main applications of their device directly from the driving seat, getting directions, making calls, sending and receiving messages and playing music, all in total safety.
The new 500 Mirror is available in two configurations: hatchback and convertible. The engine line-up is wide and complete, featuring the 1.2-litre 69 HP petrol and the 0.9 TwinAir 85 HP engines. The latter registers a fuel consumption of just 3.8 litres/100km and with emissions lower than 90 g/km of CO2 on the combined cycle. Together with Panda, the 500 is the only car in its segment to fit the 1.3 Multijet II 95 HP, a brilliant Euro 6 engine which is fuel-efficient and even more eco-friendly.
The 500 Mirror is reasserting the success of the iconic Fiat with many new style accents: chrome-plated, heated wing mirrors, brushed aluminium "Mirror" badge on the pillar and special Italia sky-blue livery. The colour palette of the 500 Mirror also features Gelato White, Passione Red, Vesuvio Black and Carrara Grey.
