Fiat 500 Mirror will keep you well connected

Besides marking the 60th anniversary of the Fiat 500, 2017 also sees the introduction of the Fiat 500 Mirror edition, writes Trish Whelan.

This special edition marks the debut of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on the Fiat 500.

It is available in five exterior colours, including Electronica Blue, and comes with chrome finished door mirror covers, a brushed aluminium ‘Mirror’ badge on the B Pillar and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Standard equipment now includes a speed limiter, integrated controls on the leather steering wheel and Uconnect 7-inch HD LIVE touchscreen with Bluetooth, USB-AUX IN ports and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This means that users can access the main applications of their smartphones directly on the 7-inch screen of the Uconnect system. Apple CarPlay enables iPhone users to access Apple Maps, Apple Music, messages, phone and more with Siri or the Uconnect touchscreen, while Android Auto integration also allows drivers to manage the compatible content and features on their device directly from the integrated touch screen or by using the system’s vocal commands. 

The new Fiat 500 Mirror is offered as both a hatchback and a convertible with the 1.2 69hp petrol engine which emits 110g/km or when combined with the Dualogic gearbox, the C02 drops to 105g/km.

The new car is now available to order with a starting price of €14,845, excluding dealer related charges.
