The 2013 FIAT 500 Abarath at Pomoco FIAT of Newport News, Virginia

More than half a million Fiat 500s of the current generation have been sold in Europe, spurred by 60 international awards, including European Car of the Year in 2008. Now, as a Chrysler product, the Fiat 500 is being made in Mexico for the North American market.


Powering the 2013 FIAT 500 Abarath

The 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth has a 160-horsepower, 1.4-liter turbo engine and five-speed transmission.  The engine is built with respectable parts like a forged crankshaft and oil squirters under each piston. Also, the MultiAir technology provides individual control of the intake valves' lift and timing. Oddly, there's no mechanical limited-slip differential. Development engineers chose to rely instead on individual control of the Abarth's front brakes to redirect torque through its open differential. In testing, the Abarth coupe sprinted to 60 mph in a quick 7.1 seconds. Stopping is an Abarth weak point. Its best stop from 60 mph was 123 feet. It's not dangerous, but it will let you know you're riding on a 90-inch wheelbase if you need to stop quickly. Running the FIAT 500 Abarth up through the gears is one of the more oddly pleasurable events in the automotive realm. The EPA numbers come in at 28 mpg for city driving and 34 mpg on the highway.


Design of the '13 500 Abarath

As befitting an icon from Italy, the 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth is a shapely beast. Where the standard 500 could best be described as cute, the Scorpion-badged Abarth model is significantly more menacing, though it's still a bit cute, sort of like an oddly cuddly miniature pitbull puppy. The rolling stock gives the car an aggressive stance that's appropriate for a hot hatchback from Europe. While the standard 500 is available in a wide range of pastel hues, the Abarth is offered only in white, gray, black or red. The somewhat monochromatic look is carried inside with either cloth or leather in - you guessed it - black and red. 


Conclusions

The 2013 FIAT 500 Abarath is smaller than a Mini Cooper S. Hipsters love that. It is a surprising car - quick, balanced, fun, strikingly styled, even.
