2012 Fiat 500C Convertible

The second Fiat 500 model is an open-air version of the relentlessly adorable three-door hatchback. It has been unveiled at 2011 New York auto show.

2012 Fiat 500C Convertible adds open-air driving excitement to the nostalgic old world design. So I think it is not a true convertible. The double-layer cloth top and glass rear window pile back on top of the small liftgate, leaving the roof rails in place. The new model includes Italian styling, timeless functionality, efficient design and innovative technology for an entirely new generation of drivers.

2012 Fiat 500C Convertible will be powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 101-hp and 97 lb-ft of torque . The little four-cylinder is assembled in Dundee, Michigan, and when equipped with the manual transmission. It is bolted to the identical five-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions, so utilizes variable valve timing and lift to achieve a best of 29 mpg city and 38 highway. The 500C is expected to return 30/38 mpg with the manual and 27/32 with the automatic.

The new 500C tick upward by about 50 pounds, which should put it over the 2500-pound mark on our scales. The retractable roof has benefits for rear-seat passengers, who not only get the wind in their hair with it pulled back, but an additional 1.2 inches of headroom with it in place.

The Fiat 500C still seats four and is as customizable as the three-door, with three top colors, 12 interior upholstery and trim combos. Voice-activated Bluetooth is standard. Other available features include heated front seats, upgraded audio, leather, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a wind blocker, among other items. The 500C also gets four 15-inch wheel designs, one made of steel and three from aluminum.
