2015 FIAT 500 Abarth 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

You ge a lot of bang for the buck with Fiat. We obviously love them since this is our fourth one! We just keep upgrading! with my Abarth, I can smoke a Corvette off the line ~ then I'm toast! But, I'll still have gas when I get there!

2015 FIAT 500 Abarth 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

I have owned 2 Abarth ( a 2013 white w/ red stripes/mirrors ,5 spd manual- 160hp/170 ft/lbs and current 2015 Red w/black stripes/mirrors,6spd automatic- 157 hp/183 ft/lbs,optional extra cost 16 in. wheels) . Now at 23k miles on red. >>No<< problems. Average around town 28 mpg (premium) but have been as high as 36 mpg on trip ( at about 65 mph). Quick with sport button on as it supposedly adds 20 ft/lbs torque. and you can feel the difference with sport button on . All three dealerships ( Baltimore,MD, Tysons Corner,VA and Melbourne,FL have been very good overall. I came from a 2011 MINI Cooper S 6spd. The MINI was more sophisticated but the ABARTH is a true hoot ,especially hearing the exhaust. FIAT /ABARTH- I suggest direct injection ( not older port injection), suggest IRS (not beam axle rear suspension) , suggest 17in wheels standard (not 16in) , suggest better gauge design . (Although 2015 was improved you are not there yet...needs to be like the 595 and 695 in Europe). Suggest improved exhaust ( a "T intersection" at rear... really?) , Suggest KONI shocks on all four wheels.(not sure if this was addressed on 2016 on) , Suggest bigger brakes front and rear. Suggest standard rear "sway bar" needs to be much stiffer to reduce lean in corners. FIAT has reduced price to now start at 20 k which seems quite fair. If you are seeking a harder core and cheaper alternative to the MINI Cooper S then try this. The ABARTH is priced closer to a MINI Cooper 1.5 134 hp /162 ft/lbs than the Cooper S.

2015 FIAT 500 Pop 2dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

In city traffic it is small enough to avoid obstacles, and handling on the sharp curves of country roads is more than economy, actually sporty. Sure the 100hp engine will need you to do a bit of shifting to keep up, but exercise is good for you. In the winter snow of upstate New York, the car got me to work sometimes even before the plows cleared the roads.
