text size: A- A+
As we told you before, the 500C is already available for order starting at 16,600 euro, but the car won't be here per se until July. In Italy, to mark the release of the car which pays tribute to the original 1957 Fiat 500 and its fabric roof, will be available for test drives starting July 4.
The 500C will come equipped with three engines, all sourced from its hardtop brother:
- 1.3l MultiJet turbodiesel (75 hp), paired with a five-speed manual gearbox
- 1.2l petrol engine (69 hp), paired with the Dualogic robotized gearbox
- 1.2l petrol engine (100 hp), also paired with the Dualogic robotized gearbox
"As an expression of Italy’s finest automotive design, the 500 is not merely a super-compact city car, but a real platform upon which Fiat Automobiles is building a whole family of cars with advanced technology and high attention to detail. The new 500C represents another step forward in this direction," the company said in a release.
So far, Fiat says it has received no less than 360,000 orders for the new convertible, from all of the company's 59 markets, half of them coming from Europe.
