Convertible: open sky travel

What is a convertible and why drive one?

Do you want to be free to decide when to enjoy the wind in your hair or the comfort and warmth from the roof?
Then a convertible could be just what you are looking for. The convertible is simply a type of car with a soft-top roof. It is the open version of a four-seater car, and has a roof that is modified to be openable at the driver’s convenience.
A Convertible can even accommodate four doors and can be sporty and fun in the summer without sacrifice any of the convenience of a city car.
Driving a convertible means opening the door (and roof) to new experiences.

Convertible, Spider and Coupé: differences and similarities

Now it's time to analyse the differences between the Convertible, the Spider and the Coupé. Understanding these differences will banish any confusion and let you choose the car that best suits your needs.
As mentioned above, the Convertible is the open version of a 4-seater car. It comes with a roof that is modified by the manufacturers and redesigned to redistribute the weight, to let you enjoy the open air feeling in safety.
A Convertible and a Spider are very conceptually different. A Spider is a two-seater open air car with a typical sporty character. It comes without the roof and its chassis is designed for rigidity.
The Coupé is also a particular type of car, although it is often mistaken for a Convertible. The term coupé refers to all cars that have two comfortable front seats and two small rear seats. Usually, these cars are sporty and have a ‘cut’ shape from which the name coupé derives.

How a Convertible works

The 500 Convertible is certainly one of the most seductive and popular convertibles out there, with the Pop and Lounge versions and the new exclusive 500 Star trim.
Getting on board a convertible takes you into a new dimension of style, thanks to the opening top, which allows you to fully enjoy the summer sunshine and travel freely with the wind in your hair.
The 500C is equipped with an electric soft top with automatic operation. The roof can be opened and closed using the specific controls located in the car
By pressing the (one-touch) button once, the roof opens automatically until it is fully horizontal (spoiler position). If the driver desires, before reaching the spoiler position they can press one of the two keys and the roof can stop in an intermediate position in the horizontal stage of opening. To automatically close the roof all the way to the spoiler position, drivers can simply press the button once (one-touch).
Now that you know how the iconic 500 Convertible works, are you ready to experience a new way of travelling?
