Fiat's convertible verison of its 500 city car will be priced from £11,300 when it goes on the sale in the UK this summer.
Customers can enter the range with the Pop trim and prices peak at £14,100 for the top of the range diesel Lounge model.
In recognition of British drivers’ enjoyment of convertibles, Fiat is launching the 500 in the UK before any other European market. Pop and Lounge versions of the new 500 C will be available at launch.
An electrically operated hood, air conditioning, remote central locking, radio/CD/MP3 player, seven airbags and electric door mirrors are standard on all cars, while climate control, ESP stability control, foglights and rear parking sensors are among the principal features incorporated in Lounge models.
Blue&Me, Fiat’s hands-free entertainment, information and communications system, along with eco:Drive, the computer technology which monitors a driver’s style and gives tips on how to save fuel and reduce emissions, is also standard on Lounge versions.
Available in 11 colours – including tech house grey and raggamuffin red – the 500 C comes with red, ivory or black roof colours. Pop interiors can be specified in either ivory or black finish with red or grey cloth seat colours. Lounge specification offers an ivory or black interior with black or brown cloth seats. Frau Leather is also available as an option.
