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 Fiat 500 Abarth First Drive Review: The Everyman Ferrari
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) There can be no doubt that the 2012 Fiat 500
Abarth is the everyman Ferrari. Not only is it made by the company that
owns Ferrari, but it perhaps more importantly it has that exotic super car
Exhaust note that will send a shiver
down the spine of any sports car lover. Just as importantly it also has the
its 2X inter-cooled turbo engine to
backup the magnificent Exhaust note.
With hardly any weight and 160 HP the diminutive Fiat 500 Abarth will tear
up the race track or your local neighborhood street. In the process it will
also out a huge smile on your face as you floor the gas and head for your
favorite twisty road.

Fiat 500C TwinAir vs 500C Abarth review - Auto Express
We pitch Fiat's new two-cylinder TwinAir against the pinnacle of the 500
range. The Abarth is faster in a
straight line, but is it more fun to drive?
Size matters. And for Fiat, it's a case of the smaller the better with its
new TwinAir 900cc two-cylinder engine. On the outside, there's little to
distinguish the two-cylinder Fiat from any other 500, but as soon as you
turn the ignition key, it's clear that there's a very different powerplant
under the bonnet.
