The Connect trim level offers a high level of tech, with a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system, DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. On all three models, new seats are paired with a brand-new dashboard finish in matt silver. Standard features on the 500 Connect also include cruise control, parking sensors, sports steering wheel with audio controls, 15-inch alloy wheels and fog lights.

It is available in the exclusive new Perbene grey/Vesuvius black two-tone livery with 500 prices starting at £15,000. The 500X Connect is priced at £20,760 - gaining rear privacy glass, LED daytime running lights and rain-sensing wipers, while the 500L adds 16-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door mirrors.

'Only' £13k for an entry-level Fiat 500. Sooo cheap.

As is usual these days, prices are kept artificially high by loading cars with too much "tech" which most buyers do not want or need.
Navigating a touchscreen menu whilst driving is just as dangerous as using a mobile phone, yet it is becoming difficult to buy a new car without one.
