Following the introduction of the new electric-only 500 and the updated Tipo and Panda, Fiat has revealed the refreshed 500 range for the 2021 model year in Europe.
However, don’t expect any major changes as the Fiat 500, 500X, and 500L have been updated with just new trim levels and new color options.
For 2021, the Fiat 500 model family is available in five new trim levels: Cult, Connect, Cross, Sport and the Dolcevita.

The Cult is the entry-level grade but it features a new, exclusive ‘Sicilian Orange’ livery paired with new blue fabric upholstery options embellished with the ‘Fiat’ monogram and a ‘Techno Blue’ dashboard trim.
The new Connect trim targets customers who ‘want to stay connected at all times’, featuring a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto as standar, while a new matte silver dashboard trim is paired with also new ‘Flashy’ seats. The 500 Connect hatch also comes with cruise control, a sports steering wheel, 15-inch alloy wheels as standard, and is finished in the new Perbene Grey/ Vesuvius Black two-tone livery.
Fiat’s new Dolcevita trim is exclusive to the 500 hatch and pays tribute to Italy’s economic boom between the late 1950s and early 1960s. The interior features a new body-color surround along with chrome-plated details, a glass sunroof, and optional two-tone paintwork.
The 2021 500X Cross features new seats with a camouflage pattern and vinyl inserts, 19-inch alloy wheels, roof rack, and automatic air-conditioning as standard. The 500L is also available in the Cross trim, adopting the same crossover look and offering a camouflage-motif interior, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air-conditioning, and rear parking sensors among others.
At the top of the range sits the Sport grade, offering a unique look with more aggressive detailing. The 500 Sport features specific bumpers, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and 16-inch alloy wheels, paired with new black fabric sports seats with red 500 logos, a new matt titanium dashboard, and more. Similarly the 2021 500X and 500L Sport feature a more aggressive exterior look, Black Technoprene interior, ambient lighting, Autonomous City Brake, and tinted windows as standard.
