All this rides on new 15- and 16-inch alloy wheels in various designs.

Exterior colour choices include new Glam Coral and Avantgarde Bordeaux colours, along with black & yellow and black & red combos.

The interior highlights include a new Uconnect infotainment system featuring a five-inch touchscreen display on the Lounge model, redesigned steering wheel with new buttons, optional 7-inch TFT display in the instrument cluster on the Lounge model.

For added comfort there are more ergonomic seats, fresh upholstery options, relocated 12V power socket, updated centre console and cup holders.

The new 500 should be also quieter as there are now more sound-deadening materials in the wheelhouse and firewall.

Engine range includes form the launch a 69bhp 1.2-litre TwinAir and 0.9-litre TwinAir with 85 and 105bhp.

Engines can be linked to either 5- and 6-speed manual transmissions or a Dualogic robotized gearbox.
