2012 Fiat 500 Abarth Test Drive & Sub-Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/fiat/500/2012/abarth/ The 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth comes packing a turbocharged motor that delivers a heaping amount of torque at low RPM's which allows the driver to get off the line quick. The suspension is stiffer and the exterior is more aggressive. The Fiat 500 Abarth is a sub-compact car that is a total blast to drive. The MSRP on a 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is $22,000.
Back in the 1950's Carlo Abarth used Fiat vehicles as race cars. These little automobiles were very successful racers and Carlo Abarth ventured out making high performance parts for Fiat vehicles. Fiat then bought out Abarth in 1971 and designated that name for their racing department. Fast forward to 2012 and we have a potent little rocket in the Fiat 500 Abarth.
Differentiating the Abarth from a more mundane Fiat 500 is easy. The Abarth model will carry with it the signature scorpion badges that Abarth is known for. Other styling ques include an Abarth sport stripe, performance front bumper, twin Exhaust, 2-piece rear fascia, rear spoiler, and 17-inch rims. On the inside the 2012 Fiat Abarth treats the driver to high performance sport seats, a flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum pedals, Boost gauge, Bose sound system, and more.
It's the performance aspect that sets the 2012 Fiat Abarth apart from the rest of the pack. Then engine is a turbocharged 16-valve 1.4 liter 4-cylinder that makes 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft. of torque. The power control module makes sure the Abarth is operating at peak performance while in Sport mode. The car still manages to get 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway too! The wheels are wrapped in sticky Pirelli P Zero tires for additional stick. Suspension wise the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth features stiffer springs and KONI shocks for added handling performance. The steering is quicker and more responsive thanks to a tuned system calibrated around the electric power steering unit. The brakes are larger rotors to take care of any spirited driving needs.
The 2012 Fiat Abarth is full of personality and it drives around like an angry little car looking for a fight. This is great for the driver that wants a fun and sporty sub-compact car. The turbocharged engine provides plenty of motivation while the suspension is capable of handling the twisties. As an added bonus all Fiat 500 Abarth buyers will get to experience a personalized Abarth Track Experience which include track instruction with a professional driver.
