We really value their loyalty, and the Prima Edizione is our gift of appreciation to these fans on behalf of Fiat North America.”

The limited editions will be available exclusively in white, red or grey, be equipped with a manual transmission, and will feature an exclusive Prima Edizione badge, along with a number badge indicating its production order.

The models will also be available for reservation at CiaoFiat.
