Score another win for the Fiat 500! The Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio has just been voted Best Small Convertible by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA) during its third annual "Topless in Miami" event. The event brings together automotive journalists from around the Southern Florida area and has them choose the best open top cars available.
This year, the Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio was selected, beating out the Volkswagen Beetle, Mazda MX-5 Miata and Smart EV. This is the third consecutive year that SAMA has picked a Fiat. In 2011, the Fiat 500 Cabrio took top honors, followed in 2012 by the Fiat 500 by Gucci Cabrio.
Jason Stoicevich, Head of FIAT Brand North America, released a statement saying:
“We want to thank SAMA for recognizing the FIAT brand for the third consecutive time. The Fiat 500 Abarth is the most affordable and fuel-efficient high-performance car in America, and now the Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio gives you a front-row seat to better hear the raspy signature sound of the Abarth-tuned dual exhausts.”
