2017 Fiat 500
Current Base Price: $14,995
Currently sold in more than 80 countries, the modern version of the 500 was launched in 2007 and 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the original 500. Fiat’s subcompact 500, which combines Italian styling with efficiency and technology, is offered in both coupe and convertible versions, as well as the all-electric 500e, 5-passenger 500L and all-wheel-drive 500X crossover. The 500c convertible features a dual-layer power cloth top complete with wind deflector and an integrated rear spoiler. The 500 and 500c come in three versions: Pop, Lounge and Abarth. Options are no longer grouped in packages so owners can mix and match to personalize their 500c. The Fiat 500c is powered by a 101-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir engine with a 5-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic. The 500c Abarth is powered by a 160-horsepower version of the turbocharged 1.4-liter MultiAir engine, also paired with a 5-speed manual transmission or an optional 6-speed automatic transmission. Fifteen exterior colors and nine interior color combinations are offered.
