    I like the update, but probably not a state-side vehicle, right?

    This is the first car with wide screen version of Uconnect 5. It should be 10.25".

    Also debut of new HVAC controls.

    I like it. Can't wait for the updated Abarth version.

    Looks great! FCA's interior/exterior design so much better than every other automaker, it's not even close.

    For sure it is wider, maybe also longer, wheelbase should be.

    Is is supposed to arrive also in the U.S.A. (California emissions rules).

    Images are out since an error of italian finacial newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, presentation was postponed to 4th of march.

    I would love to see one in person.

    I still hate the Ipad glued to the dash trend for the screen.

    I like it. But I thought it was going to be a 5 door with Mazda RX8 type suicide doors?

    Interesting how the 500 logo is on the front instead of the FIAT logo now. But those seats are interesting!

    It's an increasing trend. Mazda does it, as I recall, too. Probably cuts parts costs and makes it easier to change screens.

    It's important to have a navigation at the higher height. It's safer.

    I'm not sure about replacement costs. For years now infotainment screens were made for double DIN (180 x 100.3 mm). Maybe they are getting too big.

    When I said "replacement costs" I was thinking about labor, and also if you need to increase screen size.

    interesting, but still, looks like they are changing to a new logo look: Screen Shot 2020-03-02 at 2.10.41 PM.png Screen Shot 2020-03-02 at 2.12.17 PM.png

    I wouldn't have any issues owning this, or the previous version, if it was only for me... too small for the family though, I still want the Dodge Omni Version. Hey Dodge, go ahead and add two more doors if you want, but we can just keep it like this to make up for the Charger s additional doors, I won't mind.

    I'm drawing a complete blank...is this the only production EV cabriolet or convertible? Nice claim to fame if so...

    What is the range? Charging time? Have they announced pricing?

    Easier to keep teh dash low. If you don't do teh stuck on look you have two options, drop teh screen or pretty much extend teh speedometer design into the radio area which will cut down vision depending how you're sitting.

    Reliable sources of information are saying everything becomes official in two days. (March 4) I don't know about when the pricing will be announced.
