Fiat 500C

Unveiled to the for the first time at the 2009 Motor Show, the new Fiat pays homage to the original Fiat 500 and its fabric roof, but offers innovative solutions in of mechanical design, engines and All this in line with the authentic Fiat tradition of people access to segment in content and technology.

In Italy, the will be able to take it for a drive from July 2009, the birthday of the Fiat 500 and two years after the launch of the that really raised the bar in of comfort, safety, technology and

Using a typical open-source (i.e. continually evolving a product on the basis of input its users), the Centro Stile design centre created the 500C by interacting with the communities of Cinquecento enthusiasts notably the 500 Wants You website and reinforcing the position of the model as a car for the by the people.

Starting from the version, the introduction of the soft top not change the winning characteristics of the such as its four comfortable and boot capacity, but it does add new that heighten enjoyment. include easier access to the even when the soft top is open, thanks to a clever of parallelogram hinges.

Another strong of the original cabriolet version is its climate and acoustic comfort. aerodynamic research means the turbulence experienced with the open has been reduced to a allowing full enjoyment of the air and the company of fellow passengers.

The to re-interpret the original design in key, with an electric roof but a stylistic design retains the shape of the classic car the Fiat 500C less of a product and one that can be enjoyed the year round. In short, all features make this new one of the most successful convertibles in the city-car segment.

A true of design, the soft top of the Fiat stands out for its elegant electrically movements and its impressively finished and selected technical features, the glass rear window to the brake light built the soft top itself. Available in colours (ivory, red and black), the soft top is matched with paint finishes including ad-hoc creations: a pearlescent Red, a Tech House so typical of sporty super and Goth-Metal Blue (the available for the whole range).

The 500C has an exclusive feel to its which is embellished with top and highly desirable fabrics, Frau leather upholstery, and a list of market-dependent standard and features: from automatic control to the innovative Interscope System, from the BlueMe Map navigation unit to the smart and from the StartStop system to the new of customisable options.

A free and expression of the automobile, the Fiat retains the same dimensions as the model (355 cm long, 165 cm and 149 cm high) and shares all three of its units: the 75 HP 1.3-litre MultiJet engine combined with a manual gearbox and the two 69 HP 1.2 litre and 100 HP 1.4 petrol engines, both with manual or Dualogic gearbox. Each engine different qualities, but all three are by generosity and a lively temperament, as as high performance and sophisticated Among their common are great reliability and respect for the (all are Euro5-approved).

In short, as an of Italy’s finest automotive the Fiat 500 is not merely a super-compact car, but a real platform which Fiat Automobiles is a whole family of cars advanced technology and high to detail. The new Fiat 500C another step forward in direction.

Alluring shape and design

The Fiat 500C is not the open version of the 500 launched in 2007, explains Roberto Fiat Abarth Style In fact, thanks to the wide of available versions, this new is really a whole new car in its own right, a strong personality inherited the original 1957 model and an sentimental value brought to it by so fans over the years. If, on the one the Fiat 500C respects the version, on the other it enriches it new features which, thanks to choices, afford each one of us freedom of use.

First of the front of the car differs for a slightly windscreen needed to resize the cross member; this a better view for the rear a stronger body and superbly lines. These are also by the continuity of the windscreen, which to the fabric roof without any part of the bodywork (an extremely and technologically sophisticated solution in with the spirit of the Fiat

From the side, the car stands out for the of the pillars which present arches in contrast with the of the soft top. The soft top defines the upper lines of the 500C and gives it a more look compared with the version. Staying with the view, the alloy wheels stand out: one option is 16 with a cross-spoked design has echoes of the original 1960s wheels; another is 15 inches, a more fluid design wheels have the classic locking nuts embossed the 500 logo).

But it is the rear aspect of the new car that is different, particularly the clear between the upper fabric and the car’s steel bodywork, by chrome trim like of the Fiat 500 versions from onwards. This stylistic makes the rear of the car appear by creating a horizontal line it. In addition, the rear window (in with an electric demister) is rounded.

While retaining the visibility as the 500 saloon, its smoother are closer in design to its 1950s

Another important feature of the new car is the this opens upwards protruding from the shape of the (this means there is no to step away when luggage). In addition, if the soft top is an electronic device lifts it a few to allow the boot to be fully This is an extremely functional and solution which can be appreciated for its usability, and for the way it integrates with the

It should be stressed that the 500C is best in class in its for the ease and versatility of loading and Merit for this goes to the luggage compartment (with a of 182 litres — just litres less than the version), the traditional upwards-opening and wide access.

Finally, the top of the new convertible comes in three (ivory, red and black) to match the body colours (six three metallic and two pearlescent). of these are inspired by the vintage of its forerunner while others are up to and boast a really contemporary Among these, three created specifically for the Fiat pearlescent Ragamuffin Red, House Grey (typical of performance super cars) and Goth-Metal Blue.

In particular a moulding of the colour on the soft top acts as a and houses a third brake creating similar aerodynamics to the version and a Cx of 0.33. This figure puts the Fiat at the top of its class, and is achieved by an optimised spoiler profile and rear covers.

The comfort of the rear has also received special as proven by an air-flow speed of 7 m/s the roof open. In addition, the soft top is down, the spoiler is so that the third brake can always be seen. The double-layered fabric ensures the best insulation from the outside along with the internal of the pillars, completes a superb for the mechanisms controlling the opening and of the roof.

The automatic electric soft top can be either by buttons near to the ceiling light or from the control. In addition, the soft top can be throughout its horizontal travel (as far as the at any speed. Vertical movement can be at any speed under 60 km/h (37

The soft top is also easy to to open it, just press the for at least half a second to the movement that then automatically up to the spoiler (a midway can of course be chosen by pressing the again).
