Little hatchback and convertible get a fashionable makeover for Spring – though in very limited numbers.

FIat Australia has launched the 500 Collezione Spring Edition, which brings a claimed $3100 of additional gear over the Lounge, priced from $21,990 before on-road costs.

Just 70 examples will be brought Down Under, based on the current Lounge specification, with both hatchback and cabriolet versions available.

Additional specification over the 500 and 500C base cars includes the two-tone Bianco Gelato and Lunare Grey exterior finish, 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome trim for the front grille line, mirror caps and bumper inserts, along with a ‘Collezione’ badge on the tailgate.

Inside, there’s a white body colour dash insert, striped seat trim with grey accents and ivory piping, ‘Collezione’ floor mats, and ivory ‘500’ logos embroidered into the seats.

Carryover kit from the Lounge model includes a leather multifunction steering wheel, leather gear knob, a 7.0-inch Uconnect infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, USB and AUX inputs, climate control air-conditioning, a 7.0-inch TFT driver’s display, and rear parking sensors.

The announcement follows the 500 Collezione Autumn Edition launched in Europe earlier this week, which sports a similar design and equipment list with different available colour schemes to match the tones of the season.
