Consumer Reports auto experts report from the 2011 New York Auto Show in New York City.
Fiat 500 Cabrio

What is it? Powered by the same 1.4-liter, four-cylinder engine as other 500s, the Cabrio adds a power-operated cloth top that sun lovers can retract at the push of a button.

Other than that, the specs remain about the same, with the 500 offering seating for four, even if it’s a bit tight for those in the rear. We’ll be adding a 500 to our test fleet as soon as we can get one.

What is new or notable? Chrysler has previously announced that the Fiat 500 will be priced starting at $15,500 for the base Pop trim level. In fully loaded Lounge trim, the car will sell for $19,500, undercutting its main competitor, the Mini Cooper by several thousand dollars.
