With all the style and convenience of the standard 500, the Fiat 500c throws an attractive, functional soft-top roof into the mix. Funky and fresh, this twist on a modern classic boasts incredible fuel economy, urban agility and outstanding interior practicality, in addition to bags of style and a surprising amount of interior space.
If you are looking for a car on the Motability Scheme that maintains its character and provides a huge amount of versatility, the 500c is tailor made for you. There is no mistaking the iconic 500 body style. Taking the best aspects of the 1957 original, such as the world-famous circular headlamps, and updating them for modern tastes, the 500c makes an instant impression wherever it goes.
The most noticeable departure from the standard edition, of course, is the roof, which allows for weather-appropriate fun all year round. Not only that, but a bevy of customisation options including three separate roof colours, 13 body colours and ten different wheel types ensure that your 500c will stand out in the crowd.
The interior of the 500c provides a practical, stylish and remarkably spacious driving environment, allowing you easy access in and out. The roof is operated at the touch of a button, and folds down in only 15 seconds, while MP3 support as standard allows you to enjoy your favourite music on the move. The level of driver assist technology is impressive, too; the eco:Drive app allows you to maximise your fuel efficiency by analysing your driving style. Voice control for many of the car's main functions, meanwhile, increases convenience even further.
With a choice of several efficient petrol and diesel engines, the ride of the 500c can be easily tailored to your needs. For those who desire maximum economy, the 1.2-litre petrol unit lowers CO2 emissions and enhances fuel efficiency, while outputting a respectable 69bhp at the same time. For those who require more power, the TwinAir 0.9-litre Turbounit gives plenty of acceleration off the mark, with up to 105bhp.
With a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP under its belt, the new 500c has been designed from the ground up with the security of its occupants in mind. This model has been fitted with the latest braking technology to reduce stopping distances, while seven airbags as standardoffer protection from every angle.
The new Fiat 500c forms part of the Wessex Fiat Motability range, and we are proud to support the government-funded charity to get more people mobile.
