Sadly not, no pockets in the rear of the seats! The 500 has more practial pockets and door pockets than in the Grande Punto I find, altho I leave nothing in my car for anti theft reasons. Stuff I do need on the odd occasion are stored under the boot carpet in the wheel well.

    Thanks -- I guess I'll be looking out for discreet car storage boxes and bits then  :thumb: 

    I used to love the cargo nets on the doors of my Punto HGT for all the "bits" and found some similar ones in Halford that have a stick-on backing.  The are great just behind the drivers seat on the pillar below where the seat-belt disappears and at the side of the centre console -- perfect for loose change for Parking & Tolls.  Will have to see how they look on the A500

    It's going to be my everyday car rather than just a plaything, so I just need to sort a decent phone holder, sat nav cradle, sat nav power extension cable (hidden not draped across the dash) etc. etc.  ;D



    Proud owner of an A500 NP since 2009. It's Fab! :lala: :lala: :lala:

    It's not under the passenger seat. Sadly they must of taken it out, although mine's leather, so maybe cloth interior still has one? There's a handy cubbyhole in the centre console right below the gear stick which can hide small items in.


    ah right thats good, i wasnt aware of that. just good to have somewhere for a bit of emergency change.
    Collected my A500 on Wednesday 4th March '09.

    The .ES should have been a slight hint  ;)

    Was good shame they didn't really go for it round the track, it would have been interesting.
