Used Fiat 500C 2009-present review

Used Fiat 500C 09-present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Fiat 500 sports?

Open-top versions of the Citroën C1 Airscape, Peugeot 108 Top and Toyota Aygo are more practical than the Fiat 500C because they can at least be had with rear doors. However, they aren’t as cute to look at and the interiors of these cars are nowhere near as stylish.

The DS 3 Cabrio has a similar roof arrangement to the 500C in that it folds down into a creased heap where the back window would be on the ordinary car. It’s a bigger and more practical car than the 500C and it has a range of larger, more powerful engines, making it a better choice for those who need a convertible for longer motorway journeys.
