2015 FIAT 500c Overview

The four-seat Fiat 500 competes with subcompact cars like the Mini Cooper, Scion iQ and Smart ForTwo. A cabrio version, dubbed 500c, is available, and buyers can also opt for a high-performance Abarth model or, in California, the fully electric 500e.

New for 2015
Most versions of the 500 get a 7-inch instrument panel screen in place of traditional gauges. Bluetooth streaming audio is now standard, and the restyled center console gains new cupholders and a USB port.  Abarth and Turbo models now offer an available six-speed automatic transmission.

500c
The 500c has a cloth top with various retraction settings, from a sunroof-like ceiling opening to a completely stowed accordion -- rear window and all -- perched over the trunk. The roof retracts with the touch of a button at speeds up to 60 mph, but unlike in most convertibles, it doesn't take the side-pillar structure with it. That makes for more of a panoramic moonroof effect than a true droptop experience.

What's Special
  • 101-hp, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine
  • Five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission
  • Trunk compartment in place of hardtop's hatchback cargo area
  • High-performance Abarth version offered

500e
The 500e is a battery-electric version of the 500 hardtop intended for sale initially in California only. Fiat says the car's range is 87 miles in mixed driving and more than 100 miles in the city.

Powering a 111-hp electric motor, the thermally managed lithium-ion battery pack can be recharged within four hours when fully depleted by using a 240-volt Level 2 charging setup (sold separately). On a normal household power outlet, Fiat says it takes less than 24 hours to recharge the battery.

What's Special
  • Unique aerodynamic components
  • Navigation system with EV-specific features
  • Push-button transmission

500 Abarth
Fiat's performance-oriented Abarth model comes in 500 hatchback and 500c soft-top form, and it competes with sporty models like the Mini Cooper S. Its turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine makes 160 hp and 170 pounds-feet of torque.

What's Special
  • Dual tailpipes
  • Functional bumper inlets for engine's two intercoolers
  • Rear spoiler
  • 16-inch aluminum wheels; 17-inch rims available
  • Performance suspension
  • Bolstered sport seats
  • Electronic stability system with partial-off mode
