2012 Fiat 500 Abarth Test Drive & Sub-Compact Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/fiat/500/2012/abarth/?id=32972 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

Fiat 500 Review
Fiats are back in the US, they're an interesting breed, like all cars a
mixed bag of compromises and surprises. Overall I like the car, it has
enough style, enough performance(barely enough), enough comfort to pass as
a competitive small car.

Redline Review: 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8
After seven years on the market, Hyundai proves it can build a value
oriented luxury sedan that has the potential to run with the best from
Germany, America, and Japan. For generation two, the 2015 Genesis now
features more distinctive styling, nearly autonomous driving technology,
and updated refinement bringing it closer to its direct rivals. Those of
you who wants a luxury sedan that doesn't follow the norm should stop by
your local Hyundai dealership, but those looking for more sportier dynamics
may find some competing vehicles more to your liking.
