Sporty distinction for an instantly captivating style
The new 500L S-Design is the latest addition to the popular S-Design family, which already encompasses Tipo and 124 Spider. Based on the Cross trim level, it stands out for its exclusive matt Donatello Bronze paint paired with black roof and Myron finish accents, including side mouldings, door handles, front grille, rear light cluster bezel, and door mirror covers. The sporty look of the new special edition is enhanced by dark tinted rear windows and new exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels with Myron finish.
The sporty and elegant style continues inside with dark accents such as the matt black textured dashboard with copper-coloured “500” logo. The passenger compartment is made even more distinctive by the special S-Design seats with black techno leather inserts, double stitching and copper “500” logo which adds a touch of elegance.
In addition to the exclusive bi-coloured matt Bronze paintwork with black roof, the new 500L S-Design is also available in metallic Donatello Bronze paired with a black roof and in pastel Darkwave Black.
