Fiat presents the 500C, the cabrio version of 500, ahead of Geneva Motor Show

The convertible version of Fiat 500 has already been presented. With its first official appearance scheduled for the Geneva Motor Show, 500C (C is for Cabrio) is not entirely convertible, but it uses a sort of targa top that keeps the side structure of the car. Anyway, this is certainly no reason for buyers not to be eagering to have their 500C in their garages.

Inspired by the 1957 convertible, 500C keeps the same dimensions of the regular 500 (3.55 m long, 1.65 m wide and 1.49 m tall), as well as the engines (69 bhp 1.2-litre petrol engine, 100 bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine and 75 bhp 1.3-litre Multijet diesel). They are mated to five-speed manual or automated manual (Dualogic) gearboxes. All versions will be offered with the Start&Stop system, which turns the engine off in traffic jams and restart it whenever the car is to move again.
