This two-seater beauty boasts an impressive lineup of four different engines, ranging from the spirited 300 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter flat four to the formidable 493 hp 4.0-liter flat six, all paired with a silky-smooth six-speed manual transmission.

But if you want something a bit b sleeker to drive and have a little more to spend, then the MINI may be a bit more up your street.

Its agile handling and sporty feel make every drive a joy, while its impressive fuel efficiency, clocking in just under 50 mpg, ensures economical operation.

While it may sit at a higher price point compared to the Fiat 500, you're investing in additional space and a sleeker driving experience. Perfect for summer adventures and everyday use alike, this convertible offers unparalleled versatility and enjoyment on the road.
