EXECUTE IN STYLE
To put on a show you must be prepared to perform. The FIAT® 500 is equipped for a standing ovation.
A MASTER FUEL SAVER
The carefree fun of the FIAT® 500 is powered by a mechanical marvel. The peppy 1.4L MultiAir® 16-valve four-cylinder engine delivers an efficient final-drive gear ratio and excellent fuel economy. With up to 31 city/38 highway mpg, the FIAT 500 has better combined fuel economy than the Chevrolet Spark, Kia Rio and Hyundai Accent, as well as the 2016 Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Beetle. That means more fuel bang for your buck and all the pure driving pleasure you love.
Aided by twin intercoolers, the 1.4L MultiAir® Turbo engine provides an impressive 160 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque (157 horsepower and 183 pound-feet of torque with the available automatic transmission). This turbo engine is standard on the FIAT® 500 Abarth.
Turbocharged cars need lots of fresh, cool air. Which is why we implemented two intercoolers on the FIAT® 500 Abarth to create cooler, densely charged air for maximum performance out of the forced induction engine. Twin “nostrils” precisely positioned on both sides of the front fascia maximize airflow in and out of the two intercoolers.
Shift into a new level of excitement with one of these responsive transmissions.
Score big style points in the performance category. No one has game quite like the FIAT® 500.
SHOCKS AND AWE
The FIAT® 500 is an example of handling and maneuverability at its smartest. With its lower control arms and sport-tuned spring rates, shock tuning and steering calibration, the FIAT 500 is equipped to handle the demands of the road.
The FIAT® 500 Abarth includes a performance suspension that features Dual-Valve Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) KONI front struts and rear shock absorbers that are performance tuned to help deliver maximum grip and work in combination with firm front and rear spring rates and a low ride height to provide responsive handling and minimal body roll.
The Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system features a three-mode calibration on FIAT® 500 Abarth models that helps maximize handling capabilities on and off the track. Three-mode ESC helps all four wheels respond when a difference is detected between your steering input and the vehicle’s motion. It uses the dynamic control systems to help you maintain directional control under demanding and adverse conditions. The brake system includes large diameter ventilated front rotors, solid rear rotors, Rosso (red) single position front and rear calipers and semimetallic brake linings.
