Fiat 500C Convertible (2020 - )

Recently updated with a new 'mild' hybrid petrol engine, the Fiat 500C is taking its first small steps into an electrified future. Very small, given the new system is basically a fancier start-stop system intended to save a little fuel around town, though the new engine it's paired with is impressively smooth and refined. Dualogic automatic versions keep the old non-hybrid 1.2.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Fiat 500 has been around for an age now so updating it with a new engine is a smart move to try and keep it fresh and relevant. Badging it as a ’mild hybrid’ may bring hope of big savings in fuel and other running costs too but don’t be fooled, this is merely the official description for a stronger starter motor with increased scope for start-stop operation in city traffic and an engine-off ‘coasting’ function if you knock it out of gear. Every little helps and it’s a lot cheaper for Fiat to engineer than a ‘full’ hybrid system like you’d get in a Prius or something like that, the 500C a chunk more expensive than the regular hatch version but still one of the cheapest ways to enjoy a bit of open-air motoring. It may not be a full soft-top like the Mini Convertible but it’s much, much cheaper to buy and this sense of innocent, affordable fun plays perfectly with the 500C’s attractive retro image. At the time of writing the hybrid is offered alongside remaining stock of the previous version, including those with the older 1.2-litre or TwinAir engines so these may be subject to offers and deals not available with the mild hybrid for now.
