Fiat is planning to expand its 500 range with at least two more versions, the Wagon called Giardinera and a 4×4 model. And in this case our spies have spotted the 4×4 version while testing in Sweden.
Rumors have been talking about releasing the 500 4×4 at the same time as the slightly facelifted 500 will hit the market. The 500 4×4 will probably chare its platform and technology with the Panda 4×4, which is known as a very good climber.
This prototype was easy to spot with its higher body and the different placed exhaust system.
Expect it to hit the market in 2012, and since Fiat is just about to start selling the 500 in the US this version might also find its way over there.
