The 1957 Edition of 500 Cabrio has been announced by Fiat in USA. It is a convertible variant of 500 1957 Edition that the company introduced last year. The cloth top is power-operated and is dual-layered. This top can be retracted till the car’s rear spoiler with a push button. When the trunk is accessed by opening the lift gate, the cloth top retracts back automatically toward the rear spoiler, so as to prevent any obstruction.
2015 Fiat 500 1957 Edition can now be had as cabrio or hatchback. The car’s handling has been improved by incorporating sport-tuned suspension. It runs on forged aluminum wheels of 16 inches and they are made attractive with a body-color retro design. The wheels’ chromed lip is wide. The accent is body-color, while the center cap is large and has the typical ‘FIAT’ emblem on it. Customers have three body paints to choose from: white – Bianco, light green – Verde Chiaro and celestial blue – Celeste.
The shades used for leather in the interior are Avorio that is ivory, and Marrone – brown. Avorio is for the interior environment and Marrone is for the leather seats. More visual drama is created with Avorio stitching featured on the accents of the seatbacks, as well as for the cushions. As for the door panels, the car makers have selected Grigio i.e. grey. The inner panel and the leather-covered steering wheel – both are in Avorio. The door armrests are in Marrone. Fun for audiophiles is guaranteed with a premium audio system by FIAT. The 276-watt system has six speakers to offer. SiriusXM Radio has been included as well.
The car runs on MultiAir 1.4-liter engine that yields 102 PS power and 132 Nm torque. The engine can be accompanied by 6-speed automatic transmission or five-speed manual gearbox. The automatic transmission is being offered as optional.
