Major changes included:
The first year of this generation offered three trims for the hatchback body with the fun-sounding names of Pop, Sport, and Lounge. Both the Pop and Lounge styles also came as convertibles, and all were equipped with a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The high-performance Abarth model had a turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder that produced 160 horsepower. In 2013, two additional models were added: the Turbo with a 135-horsepower turbocharged engine and a convertible Abarth.
