Fiat 500 AWD spy shots - Click above for high-res image gallery
The 2012 Fiat 500
may just be launching here in the United States, but elsewhere, Fiat
appears to be working on an all-wheel-drive 500 to battle the high-riding Ford Fiesta
and Chevrolet Sonic
that have both been recently spied
. Rumors have suggested that the AWD variant will be introduced around the same time as the slightly facelifted 500 in Europe.
This 500 mule is clearly rides higher off the ground than the normal car, and our spies point out that a reworked exhaust system is present on this test car - a result of the reworked underpinnings. We expect the 500 AWD to arrive sometime in 2012, though it is unclear whether or not this model is destined for consumption here in the U.S. Scroll through our gallery of high-res spy shots below to see for yourself.
