Welcome the Fiat 500 Ribelle and the Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking

Fiat is set to expand the appeal of the Fiat 500 by offering two new special edition models with unique exterior and interior features that will highlight the separate personalities of these trims.

The Fiat 500 Ribelle and the Fiat 500L Urbana Trekking is set to debut at the 2014 Miami International Auto Show later this month and will take inspiration from the Fiat 500 Pop and the Fiat 500L Trekking.

“Personalization and self-expression is part of who we are as a brand, and the Fiat 500 Ribelle and the Fiat 500L Urbana showcase that so well,” said Jason Stoicevich, Head of FIAT Brand for North America, Chrysler Group LLC.

The Fiat 500 Ribelle has a rebellious nature with a Rosso (red) roof, spoiler and mirror caps, complemented by Nero Puro (Gloss Black) headlamp and tail lamp bezels and Nero-painted wheels with Rosso wheel caps.  It will come in four exterior paint colors: Bianco (white), Billet Argento (Billet Silver), Grigio (gray) and Nero Puro while the interior will come in either Grigio/Nero or Grigio/Rosso.

Inside it features a Nero leather steering wheel, leatherette door bolsters and cloth seats.  The instrument panel features a Nero Puro bezel for trims with glossy exterior paints and a Matte Grigio bezel for those with Matte Grigio Chiaro exterior paint.
