2012 Fiat 500 Cabrio Unveiled and Hitting the US Just in Time for Spring

Fiat has announced 2012 Fiat 500 Cabrio will be offered in the U.S. just in time for spring.

The Fiat 500 Cabrio features a premium dual-layer power-operated cloth top that can be lowered at speeds up to 60 mph. At first glance the 500 Cabrio looks very similar to the 500 coupe, since it still retains the fully framed side windows. The 500 Cabrio still has room for four passengers and the top is available in three different colors.

Although Fiat claims that the 500 Cabrio will be available this spring, an official launch date hasn’t been announced.
