New Fiat 500 Hey Google special editions revealed

Fiat’s 500 range now supports Google’s voice command system, and the firm has launched a trio of special edition models to celebrate

Fiat has forged a new partnership with Google, adding the technology firm’s “Hey Google” voice control system to the 500 city car, 500X crossover and 500L MPV.

The upgrade allows drivers to connect to their car remotely, while it’s parked, via voice control. Users can speak into their smartphone or a Google Nest Hub, the latter of which is included with each car.

Fiat says that the system allows owners to check information about where their car is parked, how much fuel it has and the total mileage driven that day. 

The service will even send a notification to the owner’s phone if it senses an attempted theft, if the car is being driven over the speed limit or if it leaves a designated area.

All three special edition models also receive a handful of Google-inspired design tweaks, including a black-on-white paint scheme, a “Hey Google” badge for the front wheel arches and unique B-pillars which feature the tech company’s logo. 

Inside, every member of the special edition 500 family gets new seat upholstery patterned with Google’s logo, and a fresh matte silver dashboard panel with a white 500 logo. The “Hey Google” graphic also features on each car’s infotainment screen upon start-up.

Standard equipment for the Fiat 500 Hey Google includes 15-inch alloy wheels, a multifunction sports steering wheel, a six-speaker stereo and a seven-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. 

Buyers only have one engine choice; a 1.0-litre three-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol unit with 69bhp and 92Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox and offers claimed economy and emissions figures of 53.3mpg and 88g/km of CO2 respectively.

The special edition city car is available as either a hatchback or a cabriolet, with prices starting from £16,005 for the former and £18,655 for the latter.

The 500X Hey Google comes as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlamps, front fog lamps, privacy glass, rear parking sensors and rain-sensing wipers. The cabin also gets a centre armrest, a multifunction steering wheel and a six-speaker stereo.

Fiat offers two petrol engines on the crossover: a 118bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder and a 148bhp 1.3-litre four-cylinder. Prices start from £20,764 for the entry-level engine and £23,264 for the more powerful unit.

The Fiat 500L Hey Google comes as standard with 16-inch alloy wheels and manual air conditioning – and the only engine available is a 94bhp 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol unit. Prices for the special edition MPV start from £20,345.
