25 perfect 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth

two Things Have Happened Since The Last Time We Reported On The Abarth Version Of The Fiat 500 Subcompact One Is That Fiat Has Made Some Improvements For 2015 And The Other Is That Cars.com Pitted This Car Against Seven Other Performance Versions Of Compact And Subcompact Cars In The Thirty Thousand Dollar Cheap Speed Challenge Let's Take A Look At What's New What's Good What's Bad And How This Car Fared Against Seven Competitors Now Here's What's New For 2015 The Biggest Is A New Instrument Panel It Is A Seven Inch Color Display Replacing Kind Of Rudimentary Gauges With A Loaf. I Screen In The Middle.

So, You Still Have The Analog Turbo Boost Gauge On The Left, But You Get A Lot More Information Here In The Center And Actually Kind Of Classes Up The Whole Interior Quite A Bit Now The Car Also Has Bluetooth Standard Now For Streaming Audio And Hands-free Telephone Connectivity Which It Didn't Have Before Unfortunately Because There's No Real Interface You Have To Pair Your Phone Using Voice Commands Which Is A Little Tedious, But It Does Work Speaking Of Interfaces There's No Navigation Option In The Dashboard, But You Can Get Instead A Six-hundred-dollar Tomtom Unit That Fits Into The Dashboard And Is Powered There's Also Now USB Port For Connecting To The Stereo And Another One In The Glove Compartment That Is For Charging Only Now They're A Couple Shortcomings Of The 500 In General That Can't Be Ignored One Is Comfort Many Of Our Editors Have Complained That The Bottom Cushion For The Driver Doesn't Tilt Which Especially Makes It Hard, If You Have A Manual Transmission Because You're Kind Of Your Thigh Is Hitting The Cushion You're Fighting It Just To Press Down The Clutch Pedal And The Steering Wheel Tilts, But It Doesn't Telescope. So, All Told Not The Mix That You Want To Get Comfortable Up Visibility's And Other Things Sitting Up High Like This Is Actually Pretty Good, But There Are Some Blind Spots Over The Right Shoulder Because Of The Big B Pillar Here And Especially When Checking Over Your Left Shoulder The 500 Abarth Turns Out To Have A Couple Personalities Or At Least Gave Us Very Different Impressions In Two Different Uses One On The Street We Were Pretty Disappointed One Of The Reasons Is Busy 260 On This Car In Our Testing Was Eight Point Eight Seconds Is That Even Quick The Ford Fiesta ST Which Is Similar In Size Did A Second Faster The Volkswagen GTI Two Seconds Faster And The Quickest One In Our Test The Subaru WRX Did It In Less Than Six Seconds Now The Specifications Actually Aren't That Bad For The Car, If You Look At The Engine Is A 1.4 Liter Turbocharged Four-cylinder With A Hundred Sixty Horsepower 170-pound Speed Of Torque Now The Company Says The Torque Peak Comes To 2500 Rpm And It Just Doesn't Feel That Way Things Don't Get Interesting Until 3,000 3,500 At Best The Car Actually Has Classic Turbo Lag Something That A Lot Of Other Manufacturers Have Been Eradicated. I Kind Of Feel Like You Need More Torque At Low Rpm It Kind Of Makes This Car Slow Off The Line Especially Because This One Has A Five-speed Manual When It Really Needs A Six Breaking Is An Area That Was A Little Bit Mixed Overall We Like The Feel Of The Brake Pedal On The Linearity They Feel Strong, But Unfortunately In Our Regimented Testing In Panic Stops The Car Got Really Really Skittish Which Is In Uncomfortable Feeling Around Town The Handling Is Pretty Good The Steering Feels Good A Little Bit Of A Problem With Body Roll Though.

I Have To Say With The Height The Short-wheelbase The Narrowness It Feels A Little Tipsy To Me Now I'm Not Saying The Car Is Going To Tip Over It's Really Just A Feeling Which Isn't Great Here's Where They Lose Me The Turning Circle Is Ponderously Wide Almost 38 Feet Wide In This Version That Seven Feet Wider Than The Regular 507 Feet So, If You're In A City And You Want To Make A Quick U-turn This Isn't The One For It And Another Short Coming For Let's Say In More Enclosed Environment Like The City Is The Exhaust Sound It's Very Noisy It's Just Overdone Now Internet Let's Be Clear It's Not Just Me That Thinks. I Work With People Who Are Roughly Half My Age And They Agree That It Is Unrelenting And Farting They Could Make It A Little Bit More Acceptable For Everyday Use Here's Where We Got Our Surprise After We Got Off The Drag Strip Where We Deserve To 60 And Panic Stops We Went On A Road Course And We Found This To Feel Like A Very Different Car For One Thing It Handled Very Well Maybe Some Body Roll, But The Car Had P0 Narrow Pirelli Tyres Summer Tires That Had Excellent Grip Didn't Feel Like We're Going To Tip Over The Handling Was Good You Think About It On The Track You Can Keep The Revs High In That Case It's Really Entertaining Little Engine And Short Of A Panic Stop The Brakes Feel Strong Confidence Inspiring Even The Exhaust Sound Around A Racetrack Who Cares Now We Put More Emphasis On Performance For The Chief Speed Challenge, But Cars.com Always Looks At The Big Picture Value Roominess Etc And Unfortunately A Little Bit Of Fun On The Track For The Fiat 500 Abarth Wasn't Enough To Overcome Test Scores That Were You Know At Best Around Average Out Of Eight Cars It Came In Eight Now, If You're Looking For An Alternative. I'd Say For A Small Car That's Just Raucous Good Fun Go For The Ford Fiesta ST, If You Want More Size Utility Refinement Efficiency All That Stuff.

I Would Go With The Volkswagen GTI It Had Some Of The Best Numbers Across The Board In Our Tests And The One That Matters Most It Came In Number One.
