2016 FIAT 500c Exterior

2016 FIAT 500c Overview (See Available Styles)

The FIAT 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-horsepower, 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
Here's info on the regular 500:
The two-door, four-seat FIAT 500 competes with subcompact cars like the MINI Cooper and smart ForTwo. A cabrio version, dubbed 500c, is available, and buyers can also opt for a high-performance Abarth model or, in select states, the fully electric 500e. All versions have front-wheel drive.
