FIAT 500 (Compacts Pt.2) - Everyday Driver
The Fiat brand returns to the US with the 500, so the guys wanted to see
what all the fuss is about. And in this second part of our compacts
comparison, we put it up against the Honda CRZ and Mini Cooper to see what
car offers the most driving fun.
2012 MINI Cooper S versus Fiat 500 Abarth 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Perhaps the car that most closely competes with
the 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth is the equally diminutive MINI Cooper S. Both
cars are tiny European hot hatches that make driving fun. Both cars are turbo charged and both cars will easily
spin their from wheels when you slam down the accelerator. We also think
that both cars will appeal to the same car shopper. So which of these two
mini-rockets is faster to 60 MPH?
Is it the Brit or the Italian. Check out this video to find out.

http://www.Facebook.com/2Redline A cute, fun, and zippy little micro car
from Fiat. We think its the "best" 2 door micro car on the market and the
only one offered with a manual transmission since the Smart and Scion don't
offer one. If you are looking for a car smaller than a sub-compact car,
look no further. Just be prepared to deal with the usual short comings of
cars in this class.
"We'll have to wait and see about its reliability, but the 2012 Fiat 500 is
yet another stylish subcompact that proves that small can be cool. "

2013 Honda Crosstour vs Fiat 500 Turbo 0-60 MPH Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The new 2013 Honda Crosstour with the V6 is a AWD
crossover that directly competes with cars like the Toyota Venza. The 2013
Fiat 500 turbo is a tiny
front-wheel-drive Italian hatchback that slots right in between the Fiat
500 and the very sporty Fiat 500 Abarth. It potentially competes with other
tiny cars like the Mazda2 and the Ford Fiesta. In no way, shape, or form
does the Fiat 500 turbo compete with the
Honda Crosstour....so that's why we decided to Mashup these two very
different cars in another fun and exclusive TFLcar Mile High 0-60 MPH
Mashup review. Which one of these cars is faster to 60 MPH? Watch the video to find
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.

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
