Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

You’ll have seen countless Fiat 500s on the road over the past few years so you’ll be well aware this isn’t a big car. True, this latest electric version has grown slightly in all directions, but there are still no rear doors and even short adults won’t want to sit in the back for long. 

Viewed as an occasional four-seater, though, the 500 Cabrio is perfectly fit for purpose.

Front stowage space is surprisingly good, with a large tray halfway up the dashboard that’s the perfect size to hold a phone. As you might expect, this is where Fiat has placed the wireless charging pad in the versions that have it.

If you want to keep valuables out of sight, there’s a long (if narrow) lidded cubby between the front seats. The door pockets are quite small, though. Access to the boot is restricted because the boot lid is much smaller and more like a saloon car’s than the conventional hatch of tin-top 500s. You’ll find the Mini Convertible and Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet are similarly afflicted, however. We were able to fit two carry-on suitcases into 500 Cabrio’s boot, one less than the Mini Convertible’s will take. At least 50/50 split folding rear seats are standard on all trims.
