Fiat will display the 2012 500 Cabrio at next week's New York auto show. The Cabrio's styling takes inspiration from the Nuova Cinquecento (500), which is sold in Europe. The 500 Cabio features a powered-operated cloth top that Fiat says can be lowered at speeds of up to 60 mph. U.S. sales begin in June.

April 14, 2011 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Just in time for spring, the new Fiat 500 Cabrio introduces American customers to open-air driving excitement with beautiful Italian styling, timeless functionality, efficient design and innovative technology.
As a contemporary solution to the famous canvas roof on the original Nuova Cinquecento (500), the new 2012 Fiat 500c features a premium dual-layer power-operated cloth top that is designed to deliver all-season driving pleasure with the top up or down. With just the push of a button, the Fiat 500c's power-operated cloth top retracts up to the rear spoiler during speeds up to 60 mph.
The Fiat 500c offers comfort for four passengers, three exterior soft-top colors, 14 exterior colors, 12 unique seat colors and material combinations plus a choice of two interior environments to allow customers to personalize "their own" Fiat 500c.
