FCA Canada: 2019 Fiat 500 Fact Sheet

Windsor, Ontario September 1, 2018 Reminiscent of the original Cinquecento, the Fiat 500 builds on the vehicle’s global popularity. Since its initial launch in 2007, more than 1 million Fiat 500 vehicles have been sold in more than 110 countries. The model’s popularity is the result of the Fiat 500’s ability to deliver unmatched personalization options with advanced solutions in terms of quality, engine performance and passenger comfort. In addition to success on the global sales front, the Fiat 500 has earned more than 80 international awards.
