2010 Fiat 500C by Diesel makes its European debut

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Fiat launched the 500C by Diesel in Milan, marking the car's European debut only three days after it was introduced in Japan. Visitors will get the chance to view the cabriolet version of the model, which was jointly created in 2008 with Diesel, in the Diesel flagship store in Piazza San Babila.

With an on-road price from 18,000 euros, Fiat 500C by Diesel will be sold globally, beginning in Italy this May. Fiat said that almost 6,500 units of the limited-edition saloon version have already been sold.

The European Fiat 500C by Diesel range is offered in four Euro 5 engine versions (1.2 69 HP, 1.4 16v 100 HP, 1.3 Multijet 75 HP with DPF and 1.3 Multijet II 95 HP). These engines are coupled to manual 5 or 6 speed gearboxes (petrol engines can be fitted with a Dualogic 5 speed robotized gearbox).

Similar to the offerings in Japan, there are three body and top color combinations -- green with black top, black with black or red top and the "Midnight indigo" blue with ivory top.

What's highly interesting is the "Midnight indigo" blue, a metal-flake body color which achieves the look of stone-washed fabrics due to a finer paint texture and almost 3D effect.

The car also gets 16" alloy wheels, the rear trim with imitation air intake with the Diesel logo, yellow brake calipers (only on the 1.4 100 HP version) and the satin finish chrome painted details.
