For the first time since Fiat withdrew from the United States market in 1983, an open-top convertible came to drivers on the west side of the Atlantic Ocean shortly after the Italian brand's return. The Fiat 500c (also known as the 500 Cabrio) joined the hardtop 500 model for the 2012 model year. Similar in design to the hardtop hatchback counterpart, the 500c stands out thanks to a canvas soft roof that is electrically operated. The soft roof on the Fiat 500c can be partially retracted to the rear spoiler while the vehicle is traveling at speed up to 60 miles per hour. When it debuted in 2012, a 1.4-liter MultiAir four-cylinder engine was the only powerplant offered on the Fiat 500c. For 2013, a high-performance Abarth version of the 500c was added featuring a sport-tuned equipment package and a turbocharged 160-horsepower engine. Special versions of the Fiat 500c were featured with a GQ Edition for 2014 and a 1957 Edition for the 2015 model year.
