Looking for small convertable for my wife. What would you recommend from Mini One or Fiat 500?

Looking for a new fun car for my wife and have been looking at the Mini One Covertable or Fiat 500c. Both similar prices. Which would you recommend, or would you suggest an alternative?

If the FIAT, go for the TwinAir. That's much more fun to drive than a MINI One.

Characterful and charismatic. Funky retro look inside and out. Fun TwinAir engine.
Highly desirable and very pretty. Handles well even with the roof down. Lower emissions than previous MINI Convertible. Air conditioning now standard.
