The 2013 Fiat 500c Abarth convertible is a bit of an Italian superstar, and justifiably so. One could dismiss it lightly as being downright cute, but to underestimate it is to risk missing out on a surprisingly pugnacious little bruiser. Heavy-footed drivers will be tickled when they press on the Sport button and experience a boost to 170 lb-ft of torque and the full flavor of the turbocharged and twin-intercooled 1.4-liter MultiAir four with 160 horsepower. The fuel efficient engine joins with the 5-speed C510 manual transmission and a front-wheel independent suspension system to send you zipping down the open road.

A power convertible roof with lining, power door mirrors, power windows, power steering, rear-window defroster, and brake assist all combine to make this car one of distinction and driving pleasure.
The Fiat 500c Abarth is Fast but Safe
A multitude of built-in safety features include ABS brakes, dual front impact and side impact airbags, knee airbags, occupant sensing airbags, overhead airbag, electronic stability control, front anti-roll bar, traction control, speed control, and a security system. The alloy wheels with 4-wheel disc brakes, front fog lights, and a spoiler keep you driving in comfort.
The engine is peppy and the suspension spicy, and the 500C is highly maneuverable—easily dicing in and out of traffic, and taking tight corners with ease. If you’re looking for a sporty drop-top with tons of must-have features and low miles, this 2013 Fiat 500C Abarth is just too good to pass up.
