Reviewing the FIAT 500 and FIAT 500C

By Methew Pitt Subscribe to RSS | January 11th 2012 | Views:

One of the most eye-catching cars this year wasn’t a mucho-expensive luxury sedan. And it wasn’t a gargantuan, impossible-not-to-notice truck or SUV.

It was a FIAT.

A small showstopper, the FIAT’s return to North America has been turning heads all across metropolitan intersections. PerformanceCars, Niagara’s superior new and used car leasing and financing dealership, was ready to offer FIAT 500s to drivers in St. Catharines, Welland, Thorold, Grimsby, Niagara Falls and the entire Niagara Region. Our centres for vehicle service in St. Catharines are spread amongst a number of convenient locations, and drivers have trusted us with their new or used cars since 1964.

Thanks to their overwhelming popularity, we’re profiling the FIAT 500 and the FIAT 500C.


The Cinquecento reincarnate. While FIAT hasn’t been available to North American markets since the 1980s, the FIAT 500 has been immensely popular in Europe. Its 1.4 litre engine packs a nimble 101hp at 6,500RPM and 98lb-ft of torque at 4,000RPM which – thanks to its incredible lightness – delivers a sporty, fun-to-drive experience. Available with a 5-speed manual transmission or automatic gearbox, the FIAT 500 can accommodate drivers of either preference. And with a 40 litre fuel tank, 6.7L/100km in the city and 5.1L/100km on the highway, this is a super-compact car with remarkable fuel efficiency. The FIAT 500 is available in Pop, Lounge or Sport trims and has become a favorite in our lineup of new cars in Niagara.


The “C” stands for cabriolet –the accordion-style soft-top roof that can fold back at speeds up to 80km/hr. Perfect for those picturesque drives through Niagara-on-the-Lake or when you want to get noticed in Port Dalhousie or Niagara Falls. The fabric slides back along the fixed roof rails to land behind the rear seats at the touch of button. Wherever you’re ready to go – the FIAT 500C is ready too, with an impeccable touch of Italian styling. The FIAT 500C sports the same engine and configuration as the FIAT 500. Don’t forget to keep your FIAT 500C vehicle serviced in St. Catharines at our certified FIAT centre!


With limited availability, the FIAT 500 is being offered in a special “FIAT by GUCCI” trim featuring premium leather and genuine Gucci styling. You can contact our Performance FIAT dealership at 1 (888) 887-3512 to enquire about availability. At our new and used car leasing and financing in St. Catharines dealership we get excited every time one of our guests is interested in a FIAT. Fun to drive and seductively stylish, you can visit our website at and connect with us on Facebook at or Twitter @FIATNiagara.
