Fiat releases first images of 500C

Fiat 500C rq

Fiat has just released the first images of the Fiat 500C. The Fiat 500C will have its public debut at the Geneva Auto Show next month and shares the same dimensions as the hardtop 500. The Fiat 500C will be powered by the same engines: 1.3 litre 75 hp MultiJet Turbodiesel coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission and two petrol units. The petrol versions of the Fiat 500C will come with either a 1.2 litre with 69 hp or a 1.4 litre with 100 hp. Those two versions will be available with both a manual and a robotised Dualogic transmission.

The Fiat 500C has been designed in Poland and comes with a retro sliding canvas roof that opens thanks to a parallelogram hinge system. This set-up means the 500C retains its roofline and arching C-pillar, which should keep its structural rigidity intact while keeping blind spots at bay. However, with the canvas roof retracted, it looks like rearward visibility is seriously compromised.

Check out the images in the gallery and check back for more updates from the upcoming Geneva Auto Show.
