2012 Fiat 500c: Best Small Convertible of the Year

Fiat 500c - Best Small Convertible of the Year

The Fiat 500c Cabrio has just won "Best Small Convertible of the Year" Award from the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA), an organization that represents the South Florida automotive media community.

To choose a winner, 45 automotive journalists sampled more than 20 new convertibles from different manufacturers. The Fiat 500c emerged as the winner. Not bad for the least expensive, four seat convertible on the market!

Below is the Fiat USA press release:

Auburn Hills, Mich. , Jul 1, 2011 - The Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA) press members voted the 2012 Fiat 500 Cabrio as their “Best Small Convertible of the Year” at the SAMA Convertible Drive today in Miami.
