Fiat Adds 500 Cabrio “1957 Edition” To US Lineup

When Fiat introduced its old looking 500 “1957 Edition” in the States back in 2014, it was available only as a coupe, but now the Italians are expanding the range with a (faux) Cabrio version.

It’s not a traditional convertible as it retains the hardtop model’s framed doors and C-pillar adding a cloth roof in-between – you could say it’s a large fabric sunroof that rolls back to within a few inches of the tailgate at the touch of a button.

The Cabrio gets the same vintage treatment as the coupe, including a choice of special classic colors like the Verde Chiaro (light green) or Celeste (celestial blue), with a two-tone Marrone (brown) and Avorio (ivory) leather interior, 16-inch forged aluminum wheels with a retro design, period “FIAT” badges and chrome exterior trims.

There’s only one engine available, Fiat’s 1.4-liter inline-four paired either to a standard five-speed stick shift or an optional six-speed automatic, with the former returning an ESA estimated 31mpg city and 40mpg highway.

Pricing for the 500 Cabrio “1957 Edition” starts at $24,700, which is $1,900 more than the base 500 Cabrio Lounge, and it’s available for order now with first deliveries later this spring.

You can check it out in the gallery that follow below and which also includes the rest of the 2015MY 500s.
