DESIGNTHE TOUCH OF CLASS
Class is the art of never looking out of place anywhere – and the Lounge looks as comfortable at an art opening as it does at the beach. Elegant European-inspired lines are highlighted by body side moulding and chrome accents, from the door handles and power-heated mirrors to the exhaust tips. Standard fog lamps add function and style.INNER BEAUTY
The 500c Lounge is a triumph of effortless sophistication – luxurious design that never looks like it’s trying too hard. You’ll appreciate sinking into the comfort and craftsmanship of the leather-faced seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel with convenient integrated audio controls. Standard automatic temperature control provides convenient set-it-and-forget-it environmental control.TAKE THESE FOR A SPIN

SAFETY & SECURITY
STATE OF THE ART SAFETY TECHNOLOGY
Prevention is an important part of keeping you and your passengers safe. That’s why Electronic Stability Control, All Speed Traction Control & Hill Start Assist are all standard on the FIAT 500c Lounge. There’s no substitute for cautious, attentive driving – but wherever you go, the advanced safety technology in the FIAT 500c is backing you every inch of the way.
7 STANDARD AIR BAGS
Seven standard air bags provide you and your passengers with outstanding protection in the event of a crash. Advanced multistage driver and front-passenger air bags match air bag output to crash severity, and a driver’s knee air bag deploys when the driver's air bag is triggered. Front-seat mounted side air bags provide enhanced protection for driver and front passenger. The FIAT 500c is also the only convertible in Canada to offer side-curtain air bags, which extend protection to passengers in all rows.
REACTIVE HEAD RESTRAINTS
Standard driver and front-passenger active head restraints can help prevent or reduce the extent of injuries in certain types of rear-end impacts by moving forward and upward to decrease the space between the headrest and the occupant's head.
EASE INTO TIGHT SPOTS
If manoeuvring into tight spaces makes you tense, the FIAT 500c Lounge comes with a standard Rear Park Assist feature to help you relax. Rear Park Assist alerts you with an audible warning when it detects an obstacle in your path at parking speeds, increasing the warning frequency as you get closer.
