FIAT is making a BeatsAudio sound system available on its popular 500 hatchback series with the arrival of a sporty S model.
The new 500S comes with extra body kit, a new-look cockpit and features Fiat's Uconnect infotaintment system with a seven-inch full colour display screen as standard.
Priced from £12,950 the 500S is fitted with sports seats, a TFT instrument panel and a sports steering wheel.
Outside, the sporty theme is continued with side skirts, a rear spoiler and sports bumpers as well as new-look 15-inch alloy wheels and satin-finish exterior detailing.
The 500S also comes with front fog lamps, tinted rear windows, a chrome-finish tailpipe, black-grained front air intakes and a honeycomb grille.
The seven-speaker 440W Beats audio system is making its Fiat debut on the 500S and is a £300 extra.
Developed in conjunction with Beats by Dr Dre, the high end set up uses a digital amplifier and equalisation system which is claimed to recreate the sound spectrum experienced during studio recording.
Other extras being offered on the 500S include a TomTom sat nav at £250, a black finished roof at £225, 16-inch alloys for £200 and a leather interior for an extra £850.
