Vehicle Overview

Ever since June 2009, when Fiat took a controlling stake in Chrysler, it's been all but certain the Italian automaker would bring a version of its 500 to the U.S. It finally arrived for 2012. The four-seat Fiat 500 competes with subcompact cars like the Mini Cooper, Scion iQ and Smart ForTwo. A cabrio version, dubbed 500c, is available, and buyers can also opt for a high-performance Abarth model or, in California, the fully electric 500e.

New for 2014

The Fiat 500 and 500c get a revised front passenger seat with an armrest and seat-position memory. The seat also sits 1 inch lower for additional headroom.

500c
The 500c sports a cloth top with various retraction settings, from a sunroof-like ceiling opening to a completely stowed accordion — rear window and all — perched over the trunk. The roof retracts with the touch of a button at speeds up to 60 mph, but unlike in most convertibles, it doesn't take the side-pillar structure with it. That makes for more of a panoramic moonroof effect than a true droptop experience.

  • 101-hp, 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine
  • Five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission
  • Trunk compartment in place of hardtop's hatchback cargo area

500e
The 500e is a battery-electric version of the 500 hardtop intended for sale initially in California only. Fiat says the car's range is 87 miles in mixed driving and more than 100 miles in the city. Powering a 111-hp electric motor, the thermally managed lithium-ion battery pack can be recharged within four hours when fully depleted by using a 240-volt Level 2 charging setup (sold separately). On a normal household power outlet, Fiat says it takes less than 24 hours to recharge the battery.
