 Pros The look of the car is too cute for words, which makes it very appealing.

 Pros Fuel economy for the manual transmission is excellent.

 Pros Tall drivers will enjoy the extra legroom, when compared to the competition.

 Cons Reliability has not yet been tested, which is concerning, because Italian cars have historically had issues with excessive need for repairs.

 Cons Headroom for both front and rear passengers is a very tight fit.

 Cons When the top is retracted the Fiat 500C Convertible has a max speed of only 50 miles per hour, which means no top-down drives on the highway.

 Cons For those that prefer to drive cars with automatic transmissions, fuel economy is comparatively poor.

 Cons Handling isn't great - the convertible version is not offered with the Sport trim that has overcome this hurdle.

 Cons While the Fiat 500C Convertible has not yet been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, dismal performance by the hatchback doesn't bode well for the convertible's safety scores.

 Cons When the top is retracted, rear visibility is strictly limited.
