We recently had the pleasure of getting behind the wheel of the 2013 Fiat 500 Abarth.  It did not disappoint. The Abarth made us grin immediately on startup with it’s intoxicatingly robust exhaust note.  The 1.4 liter Multi-Air turbocharged 4-cylinder produces 160 horsepower and sits on optional 17inch wheels. Starting at $22,000, this hot hatch will get you there in a hurry. The sport tuned suspension and brakes help the Abarth turn and stop on a dime. The power is sufficient enough to dart around town, but we found ourselves looking for a bit more. Overall the car was a blast to drive, and the build quality is on par with it’s American sport hatch competition.  An added bonus of purchasing an Abarth is the free track day offered to all owners of the car.  From what we’re told, this is a hands on driving clinic at a local racetrack that runs the better part of an 8 hour day.  With newly announced incentives, now is a great time to buy.  Sign us up.
