European styling hits the American market for another go with the release of the 2012 FIAT 500c Pop edition, a car that offers the utility and small stature of the FIAT with plenty of bonus features. For its small stature, the 500c Pop offers big styling: the cute Italian flair that's come to exemplify FIAT mixed with the sportiness of a convertible. Ready to put the top down? Come give this wonderful little car a test-drive at Fields FIAT of Highland Park, where we have the FIAT model of your dreams on our lot just waiting for you to claim it.
A two-door hatchback convertible, the FIAT 500c Pop gives you the ability to open or close the top at speeds up to 50 miles per hour - so, if you find yourself on the highway and the sun breaks through the clouds, you'll have an opportunity to take advantage of the spotlight. Cowl shake, a common problem with convertibles where the steering wheel shakes, is eliminated by the 500c Pop's rigid body construction.
For a convertible, this car is a steal. Starting at $20,000, you get a five-speed manual with all sorts of trimmings. Standard audio equipment comes in your typical audio system with auxiliary inputs, but if you're looking for the step up, consider the optional Bose premium audio system. Satellite radio is a good addition for the driver who likes to hit the road to a soundtrack. If you're wondering how to buy, make sure to check out our website for more information.
A lot of people expect a small car like the FIAT to lack in safety features, but this simply isn't true. The FIAT 500c Pop comes standard with seven different airbags, as well as high-tech features like traction and stability control and antilock brakes. In IIHS frontal offset crash test ratings, the FIAT ranks well, logging 'Good' marks nearly across the board - the highest designation available in the study. Again, the rigid construction comes into play in terms of safety, with the FIAT doing well in the case of an accident. When it comes down to it, you're really buying a car to get you from point A to point B safely.
All in all, the 2012 FIAT 500c Pop stands up to competing models on the small car market and outperforms most of them. Its sassy styling makes it a favorite among casual drivers, and its small stature simplifies how you interact in city driving. It's a highly fuel-efficient option on a market that has brought fuel efficiency to the forefront of development, and it stands out for its unique and powerful presence on the road. Ready to buy?
