This latest addition to the Fiat line-up will use a targa-like roof rather than a completely convertible design, most likely to save costs and weight.

In addition, the roof design also allows Fiat to distance the 500 Cabriolet from competing models such as the Mini or Volkswagen Beetle Convertibles which both use a completely convertible rag-top roof.
