The design should actually follow the function, but unfortunately it is all too often the exact opposite. This can be shown very good at the competitor of this cult Fiat, the Mini. It had inherited from his ancestor, until now a large round speedometer in the middle. Until one in the latest version (finally) realized that speedos are better readable behind or above the steering wheel.
Now the BMW Mini is however famous for its interior design. So the large round instrument may not disappear. No, it is now home for a rectangular screen with a lot of useless space.
Example desired for the Fiat 500 Cult? It will delivered exclusively with black roof. This one had however already desired for a car from a sunny country. Maybe at least the high finish can let rise the temperatures in the interior a little more merciful.
And you have to ask the question whether this Fiat at all comes from a sun-rich country. It has always been manufactured in the south of Poland, where it can be hot perhaps only thanks to continental climate, and more recently in the heart of Mexico. The Fiat-Chrysler Group is now emigrated to the Netherlands.
It only remains the typical Italian blue that is added as one of two new colours and can be seen on top of the images. And the sense of design, with the are created the new seat sets. As a completely new part can be admired the TFT speedometer above. Otherwise, there is an even more powerful two-cylinder, in which the Italians try to prove by volume measurement that it is clearly quieter than the four-cylinder. 03/14
