Meet the FIAT 500c

on by

Trios have defined literature, music and fantasy. Now, a trio defines the FIAT USA lineup. While the FIAT 500 and FIAT 500 Abarth offer something for most everyone, the FIAT 500c (itself available in three different models) is the perfect summer ride if you’re looking to stand out among the season’s traditional ragtops.

The “c” in 500c stands for “cabriolet,” which in 18th-century French meant “light carriage with a foldable top.” In 21st-century Italian, it means “light coupe with a three-position power retractable roof.” Available in three different colors, the 500c’s soft-top gathers like a sail down the rear hatch when opened completely, preserving passenger and cargo space. Its position can also be adjusted at speeds up to 60 MPH – meaning you won’t need to worry about a sudden downpour. Freedom of expression continues beyond the roof. Shades of rosso (red), azzuro (blue), and giallo (yellow) are but a few of the 500c’s 14 available paint colors. Your choice of nonmetallic or premium tri-coat pearl gives vibrant shades an extra punch and breathes new life into traditional black and white. Throw in a slew of wheel, seat, decal, and molding options, and there are more than 500,000 possible ways to make a 500c your very own. We know good looks will only get you so far, but the 500c’s 1.4L MultiAir engine will take you the rest of the way. Putting out an impressive 101 horses, the 1.4L achieves an EPA estimated 38 MPG on the highway while reducing emissions via direct control of air and combustion. Performance can be further enhanced with a push of the standard Sport Button, which elevates steering, engine, and shifting response. While seven airbags, an Antilock Braking System (ABS), and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are standard on the 500c, there are 35 extra features available, including the ParkSense Rear Park Assist system, LATCH-Ready Child Seat Anchor System, and All-Speed Traction Control. All safety features wrap around you within the 500c’s state-of-the-art cockpit. Blending safety and excitement, you can enjoy optional Bose sound and SiriusXM Radio hands-free through standard wheel-mounted audio controls and FIAT’s BLUE&ME voice-activated phone and stereo controls. Special tuning ensures you won’t miss a beat whether the top is up or down. Slotting between the FIAT 500 and FIAT 500 Abarth, the base 500c Pop model starts at $19,500 (500c Lounge and Gucci models start at $22,500 and $27,750). With its blend of distinct style, performance, and efficiency, the 500c is a “middle child” who has taken center stage.

    I like to knowI like to know what is it the different between the convertible fiat 500 C Pop and the fiat 500 c lounge .I love fiat and I like to get one.

    • it is all in the features…like the type of sunroof it has. Go and Check out this Fiat website, it allows you to create and price your own dream car and you can read all about what each version offers.
      That should help you make an informed decision on what you want!!!

    I am having a really hard time deciding which model I would like but more importantly I’m also trying to figure out the best way to save money? Can ask you how much you paid and how long before you’ll get your delivery on your car.

    I’ve had my 2012 500C POP since the end of January and I totally love this car – it’s a U.S. model built in Mexico in Argento (silver) with a Rosso (red) cloth interior and a Noir (black) convertible top – I chose the POP because you can’t get a 5 speed Lounge in the U.S. – so I added chrome bumpers and mirrors and the chrome hood speer – through after market websites oh yeah and fog lights too – I’m disabled so I chose the simple wheel covers instead of the no cost optional painted alluminum wheels ( no more scrubbing wheels) plus I like the vintage look and then I added the Bose stereo system – my cost out the door with tax and a transferred tag was $22,4 something – the 2012 had some safety changes and it now qualifies for the best safety rating insurance wise so theres a huge savings there and I was lucky to get the maintenence warranty for free because the dealer I went to is now charging for that as an add on – I drive it with the sport button engaged at all times – I’m 5’11” and the convertible and, just a hard top no sunroof and, probably the fixed glass Lounge roof provide the greates headroom – a sunroof reduces headroom – I usually average 33.9 mpg on cheep gas and the best I’ve gotten on expensive gas highway was 34.9 but I kind of have a lead foot – I’m a huge car buff especially small European ones and wanted this 500C for at least two years before they came to the U.S. – the coolest thing is not having to pullover and stop to raise or lower the top – you can do that at 50mph – I say get one if your wanting one – RED is $500. more unfortunately and you need to order a spare tire if you want one CAIO!!!!
