2013 FIAT 500 Abarth Details
The 2013 FIAT 500 Abarth has very unique body styling and exterior features. Its size is probably the first thing you'll notice when you see it. This model's sporty identity is supported by a pin stripe, spoiler, 17" alloy wheels, and body-colored heated power mirrors and bumpers. Its 160 horsepower, 1.4L I-4 engine gets an estimated fuel economy of 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway. A 5-speed manual transmission, front wheel independent suspension, sport suspension, and power steering round out this very manageable drivetrain.
Inside the Abarth you'll see more sporty details, like red accents on the heated front bucket seats, and a leather shift knob and sport steering wheel. Front and rear beverage holders and driver and passenger door bins provide storage space for your personal items, keeping the seats and floors clear. Keyless entry and power accessories like windows, speed control, moonroof and 1-touch down save time and make your life a little easier.
