As before, there's a choice of fixed-top and convertible 500 models. The open-topped 500C variants require a premium of around £2,500 over their standard counterparts. If you're happy with tin-top 500 motoring, then you'll find pricing that's a bit higher than before, yet which still starts at around £16,800 for the baseline 1.0-litre version. Above this variant, there's a plusher 'TOP' version for £1,500 more.While there are cheaper and more practical cars out there, these prices are on par with other style led hatchbacks and they undercut what you'd pay for a comparable MINI Hatch 3-door.
So what do you get for your money? Base trim has LED daytime running lights and a Uconnect infotainment system with six speakers, plus AUX-in/USB ports and steering wheel remote controls. Plus there's a 7-inch Uconnect infotainment system with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The interiors include a body-colour dashboard, while outside there are chrome-plated details, a glass sunroof and 15-inch alloy wheels.
All 500 models are safe too, with a five star Euro NCAP safety rating, seven airbags, ABS with electronic brake distribution, electronic stability control, a Hill Holder clutch to make pulling away on an incline easier and hydraulic brake assistance to help with emergency stops.
