Fiat has revised its pricing structure in the United States, trimming the price of nearly every one of its vehicles for the 2017 model year.
The entry-level 2017 Fiat 500 Pop will start at $14,995 before $995 in destination, $2,000 less than the 2016MY 500 Pop.
Fiat has also done away with the 500 Easy, Sport and Turbo trim levels for 2017 and will now only offer the hatchback in Pop, Lounge and Abarth trim. Lounge models will now start at $18,395 before destination (compared to $20,395 in 2016), while Abarth models will start at $19,995 (compared to $22,575 in 2016).
The biggest price change is for the 500 Cabrio. The retractable soft-top is now a $1,495 option across the three 500 trim levels for 2017, with the 500 Abarth Cabrio costing $21,490 (compared to $26,695 in 2016). The 500 Cabrio in Pop trim will now cost $16,490 before destination (compared to $20,395 in 2016) while Lounge versions will cost $19,890 (compared to $24,495 in 2016).
The smaller price tag of the 500 Cabrio will help to differentiate the car from recently introduced 2017 Fiat 124 Spider, which starts at $24,995 for base models and maxes out at $28,195 for performance-oriented Abarth models.
The trim levels for 500X and 500L models has also been revised. The automaker has done away with the 500X Easy and Trekking+ trim for 2017, leaving only the Pop, Trekking and Lounge models. The 500L range now consist of only Pop, Trekking and Lounge models as well, with Fiat doing away with Urbana and Easy models.
