Abarth 500C Convertible (2009 - 2015) MK1

The Abarth 500C convertible is a hoot to drive at any speed. It can’t match the MINI Cooper S Convertible for performance, but it’s much cheaper and packs a stronger visual punch.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The thick-rimmed, flat-bottomed steering wheel is lovely to hold, and the coloured panel in the dashboard gives the car a premium feel. It’s easy to make the Abarth 500C look even more distinctive using Fiat’s vast array of personalisation options. We like the little turbo boost gauge next to the big speedometer. Sadly the ergonomics aren’t a patch on those of the MINI Convertible. The Abarth 500C is a small car with limited headroom and a cramped driving position. The pedals are squeezed together, the steering wheel lacks adjustment and the driver’s seat is set too high.
