How to Carry Bikes With 2017 Fiat 500C


Hello, we have the cabriolet/convertible version of the Fiat 500. There is MUCH less clearance on the top of the trunk where the convertible top starts. I had a friend with a carrier that fits great on his Fiat 500 but wont work on the 500C. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Looking at holding 1 bike. Thanks

I checked with each of our manufacturers, and there are no fits for trunk-mounted bike racks for a 2017 Fiat 500C; so while you can carry a bike, you will need to install a trailer hitch receiver and hitch-mounted bike rack. For the hitch, what you will need is an option from Draw-Tite:

- Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24873

This is a Class I hitch, so you will need a Class I-compatible bike rack, such as the Yakima SingleSpeed Bike Rack # Y02481. Or if you feel like you may carry more than a single bike at times, you can go with a 2-bike rack like the Thule Apex XT 2-Bike Rack # TH9024XT.

I have added a link below to our entire selection of Class I-compatible bike racks for you to check out.
