Here at our dealership in Chicago we are excited about the arrival of the 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth, and Charlie Sheen's endorsement aside, it has a lot to offer drivers. The engine on the standard 500 is a 1.4L 4-cylinder, capable of 101 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque; the Abarth's turbocharged engine, however, delivers an increased 160 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, generating a significant gain in acceleration. What's more, it's fuel economy ratings comes in at an impressive 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.
The Abarth will also give you an improved suspension; the front spring rates, in fact, have been increased by 40% over the standard 500. Throw in Koni dual-valve dampers, a stiffened rear suspension (also 40% stiffer than the standard 500), and a roll bar, and it's clear that this model is built with a fun ride and tight handling in mind.
The 500 Abarth features a base MSRP of $22,700, but there are a few options that you can add. These include a sunroof, leather upholstery, satellite radio, and automatic climate control, among others. In any case, this will be an excellent choice for drivers who want a vehicle that is small, efficient, and fun!
