Soak up the sun and admiring glances with the top down on
the Fiat 500C. Brighter and more original than ever, the 500C possesses all the
stylish flair of the 500 with the driving pleasure of a convertible.
Starting from the basis of the highly successful hatchback, the introduction of a soft top version does not change the winning characteristics of the model, such as its four comfortable seats and its comprehensive safety equipment, but it does add new functions that heighten enjoyment, including easy access to the boot even when the soft top is fully open, thanks to a clever system of parallelogram hinges.
Another strong point of this original convertible version is its exceptional climate and acoustic comfort. Thorough aerodynamic research means that turbulence experienced on the move with the roof open has been reduced to a minimum, allowing full enjoyment of fresh air and the company of fellow passengers.
The decision to re-interpret the original design in a modern idiom, with an electric sliding roof that retains the shape of this classic vehicle, makes the Fiat 500 C less of a seasonal product and one that can be enjoyed the whole year round. In short, all these features make this new vehicle one of the most successful convertibles in the modern city car segment.
The Fiat 500 C soft top stands out for its elegant electrically controlled movements and its impressively finished and carefully selected technical features, from the glass rear window to the third brake light built into the soft top itself.

The Fiat 500C is powered by a range of environment-friendly, Euro 6-compliant engines combined with five- and six-speed manual gearboxes or a Dualogic robotised transmission depending on the model. The engines line-up available at launch include the 1.2 litre 69hp, the TwinAir 85hp and the TwinAir 105hp.
The TwinAir 0.9 85hp has an official fuel consumption figure of 74.mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 90g/km, remarkable figures which not only have positive environmental implications but which also ease the burden on the owner's pocket too.
The Fiat 500 range will expand to include the 1.2-litre 69hp engine in 'Eco' configuration and the 1.3-litre 16v Multijet II 95hp turbo diesel unit. The 1.2 ‘Eco’ will be equipped with a smart alternator, a specific aerodynamic pack and new 14- or 15-inch tyres with low rolling resistance and high resistance to wear resulting in a reduction in CO2 emissions from 110 to just 99g/km.
The Fiat 500 is the only car in its segment, alongside the Fiat Panda, to offer a small diesel engine ideally suited for those with long commutes into congested cities: The 1.3-litre 16v Multijet II 95hp will emits only 89 grams of CO2 per kilometre and comply with Euro 6 standards.
There are a wide range of new technology and safety systems aboard the Fiat 500C. The driver can monitor data from the speedometer, odometer and trip computer simultaneously at a glance, while the central section of the display – sporting an image of the car – can be configured to show distance travelled, fuel consumption, range, trip time etc. Warning messages and the Gear Shift Indicator, which advises when to shift gear to maximise fuel-efficiency, are also displayed in this cluster in a highly visible manner.
In terms of infotainment, there is a new Uconnect system that takes pride of place in middle of the dashboard of the Fiat 500C. On the entry-level version, the system includes; FM/AM radio; remote controls on the steering wheel; AUX-IN and USB ports and six speakers as standard.
Lounge models are equipped with the Uconnect 5-inch Radio LIVE system which is a touchscreen unit complete with Bluetooth hands-free calling, voice recognition and an SMS reader for reading text messages received on compatible telephones using 'text to speech' technology. The driver can connect multimedia devices via USB or using the 3.5mm auxiliary jack or stream music via Bluetooth using a compatible smartphone. DAB digital radio is also available.
