Newer Seats will they fit

Hi Guys just purchased a 2009 1.2 sport, the drivers seat is a bit worn, and i have seen a full set of seats from a 2015 fiat 500,i was wondering if this would be a straight swap with no issues.
thanks in advance

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

Is it the new Facelift model? I think all seat rails are exactly the same. I have changed lots of interiors, none as new as 2015 though, but if the airbag/seatbelt connectors are the same which they probably are, then they will all fit.

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

Is it a straight forward job? I am looking to change my interior as it marks and gets grubby too quickly. Just need to find one (leather) thats all in good nick and within 200 miles to aid pick up. As I don't think ones with airbags couriers will touch.

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

I've had complete interiors sent on a pallet to me before. Maybe they just don't mention airbags.

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

They ship fireworks by lorry so why not "safer" car seats?

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

Struggling with a similar question - trying to fit new 2018 seats into a 2011 (so pre facelift) model where the interior is worn.
Dealer says airbags (connectors?) might be different, so potential problem.
I'm not convinced he's right but cannot compare the connectors right now.
Anyone aware of any differences ? Surely those were never 2-stage?

Re: Newer Seats will they fit

Thanks, Chris. Anyone got experience with 2016 (post facelift) seats in older models ?
Any differences in airbag connectors ?
