Fiat has released new information about the 500C by Diesel.

Set to be unveiled at The Fiat Café in Japan, the convertible features 16-inch alloy wheels, yellow brake calipers (only on the 1.4-liter model), and satin chrome accents. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with denim-style fabric, a 'Mohican' gear knob, satin chrome trim, and Diesel branding.

Four engines will be available: the 69 hp (51 kW / 70 PS) 1.2, the 100 hp (75 kW / 101 PS) 1.4 16v, the 75 hp (56 kW / 76 PS) 1.3 Multijet, and the 95 hp (71 kW / 96 PS) 1.3 Multijet II. They will be backed up by a five/six-speed manual or a five-speed Dualogic 'robotized' automatic.

Priced from €18,000 ($24,475 / £15,860), in Italy, the 500C will go on sale in May.
