In the market for a four seat convertible but don’t want to drop over $20 grand? Your wait is almost over. The 2012 Fiat 500c will hit dealer showrooms this spring, and it’s everything you’ve been waiting for. If what you’re looking for is a cutesy little semi-convertible that seats your teenage daughter and three of her friends.
The 2012 Fiat 500c isn’t a convertible in the classic sense – the B & C pillars are fixed. The soft roof slides all the way back and down, leaving a wide-open area in the middle. The benefit, of course, is that this is the only ragtop I’ve ever seen that actually looks *good* with the top up. Especially in the white / red top combination shown below.
