In case you didn’t know, The Garage is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Fiat 500. Our enthusiasm for the charismatic Italian subcompact was kicked up another notch at the announcement that Fiat will be offering the 500 Cabrio, in addition to the hardtop. The Cabrio recalls the original 500 with a full canvas roof to let the sun in, but with a modern take on the concept. The 2012 Fiat 500 Cabrio will feature a dual layer power-operated cloth top that can be retracted at speeds up to 60mph. Fiat says the Cabrio is arriving ‘just in time for Spring’ but no release date or pricing has been announced. We expect more details on the Cabrio to come at the upcoming New York Auto Show, so watch this space.
