All about the New 2015 Fiat Abarth

The Abarth is a slick little vehicle to say the least. Not only is the design sleek and modern, this little car as a lot of punch, this Fiat is one of the speediest vehicles you can purchase from this goliath car company. We have put together a comprehensive review on this vehicle to give you all the information you need to make an educated decision.

Even though this vehicle may seem small in stature, there is a lot of space in this vehicle. This vehicle can comfortably seat four people, even though it’s a hatchback. Many people would expect space to be a huge issue with this car, to put it as simply as possible, the complaints about space have been minimal. There is a number of different styles available for this vehicle: the Pop 2dr Hatchback, the Sport 2dr Hatchback, the Lounge 2dr Hatchback, the Turbo 2dr Hatchback and finally, the style that were covering today, the Abarth 2dr Hatchback. Among these different styles many things vary, including the type of engine, the amount of horsepower and the type of transmission in each vehicle.

All the individual styles have a 4-cylinder engine with a 1.4-liter engine. In terms of horsepower, the vehicle that has the lowest horsepower of these styles is the “pop” with a horsepower of 101. On the other hand, the vehicle that has the highest horsepower is the Abarth, boasting a horsepower of 160. Being the most powerful model is just another reason to purchase this vehicle. In terms of pricing, this vehicle is also very competitive.

Pricing, Safety, and Fuel Efficiency

The pricing for the cheapest model starts at $16,625 and goes all the way up to $22,495. This is considered to be very reasonable for this market. In terms of gas mileage, this vehicle was MADE to save you money. The most fuel-efficient style of this vehicle is the “Lounge”, delivering a fuel economy of 31 miles per gallon city driving and over 40 miles per gallon highway driving. Unfortunately, the model we are reviewing (the Abarth) has the lowest fuel economy with 28 miles per gallon city driving and over 34 miles per gallon highway driving.

Safety is a major concern when I’m purchasing a new vehicle. You can rest assured you and your passengers will be safe while driving the Abarth. Reason being, the National Highway traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) awarded this vehicle a 4 out of 5, which is not the highest rating possible, but it’s still very good.

Clearly this vehicle is not really for a family of five or other people with a bigger family. Reason being, you just can’t fit an entire family in this vehicle. To be honest, I wouldn’t want to either. I think this car is perfect to take your significant other in and watch the heads turn from jealous onlookers. First, lets take a look at what the experts have to say. They love the rear spoiler, the chrome exhaust tips, and the fog lights that come standard. Additionally, the available power sunroof and of course the heated-adjustable power side mirrors have received praise as well.

In regards to negatives, the experts mention that the vehicle can be snug. But, like we previously discussed this vehicle is not really to carry your family your around in, its more of a “night out on the town” kind of vehicle. The consumers are also very happy with this vehicle. In order to gauge the purchasers of this vehicle properly, we have distributed a survey to ACTUAL purchasers of this vehicle. They were asked to judge the Abarth of six different items: comfort, performance, exterior styling, interior design, value for the money and reliability. Lets look at how they judge them.

  • Comfort received an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5.
  • Performance received a stunning 5 out of 5 (no surprise here considering this is what the Abarth was built for).
  • Exterior styling also received a perfect 5 out of 5.
  • Interior design received a rating of 4.3 out of 5 (like we previously mentioned the vehicle to some people is snug).
  • Value for the money also received a perfect 5 out of 5.
  • And finally reliability received a perfect rating score of 5 out of 5.

Averaging together all the individual reviewers ratings and computing a final result have determined these results.

How has the Vehicle Evolved?

There have been a number of changes from the 2014 Abarth. For example, this vehicle was born to be a racecar, but only recently has it been adapted to be produced and marketed to the general public. Therefore, most of the changes that have been added to this vehicle are mechanical. Fiat has upgraded the engine in this vehicle in order to increase horsepower, while lower fuel costs. For example, along with the engine upgrade, the miles per gallon have been increased a few miles as well.

The brand “Abarth” originally operated as its own entity, but Fiat acquired it in 1971, this is when the vehicle hit mainstream production (or at least the process was started). Before this company was acquired by Fiat, this company also helped build some supercars with Porsche and Simca. So if you’re looking for a car that has a serious race background, you found the correct ride with the 2015 Abarth!

2015 Fiat Abarth Final Review

A low purchase price, incredible gas mileage and a supercar background are just a few of the many reason to purchase this vehicle. Also, because it is built to go fast, Fiat wanted to make sure your safe, that’s why they work very hard to ensure there NHTSA rating is high. They work constantly trying to increase there safety rating. This vehicle is perfect for the person who’s trying to enjoy a night out in a fast car and turn heads in the process. If you’re looking for a vehicle to carry your family around, this car is most likely not for you (even though it is very spacious for a car of this stature).
