The 2013 Fiat 500 comes with a 1.4-liter engine, and it's turbocharged on the Turbo and Abarth.
Fiat 500 Pop ($15,500) offers 14 colors and comes standard with air conditioning, AM/FM/CD/MP3 radio with auxiliary input, power windows, power door locks, power heated mirrors, cruise control, vehicle information display, fabric seats and 15-inch steel wheels. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard; a 6-speed automatic ($1250) with manual shifting is optional. Pop options include a smoker's pack, engine block heater for cold climates, compact spare tire, premium or Beats audio system upgrades and sunroof ($850).
Fiat 500 Sport ($17,500) comes with firmer suspension settings, tighter steering calibration, and a sharpened exhaust note. It comes with the 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic ($1250). It's distinctively styled, with front and rear fascias with black mesh openings, slightly flared fenders, rocker panel cladding, roof spoiler over the liftgate, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. Smaller touches include chrome exhaust tip and fog lamps. Inside, the Sport features seats in what Fiat calls a Gray/Black interior environment, six-speaker sound system, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and Blue&Me hands-free communication technology with USB port and iPod control.

A special Fiat 500 Gucci model ($23,750) is essentially a limited-edition Lounge.
