Fiat 500 Abarth Hatchback (2008 - )

The Abarth 500 is one of the most stylish hot hatchbacks around, offering plenty of punch and sharp handling. It's more exclusive than the Fiat 500, but it's also pricier and has a much firmer ride.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Abarth 500 is very similar to the standard Fiat 500 inside, with a high, dash-mounted gear lever. There are a few sporty touches such as the red stitching and aluminium pedals, while the body-hugging seats can be specified with leather to match the colour scheme. However, the quality of the materials isn’t as good as that in, say, a Ford Fiesta Zetec S. The seating position is also quite high up, which detracts from the Fiat’s sporty nature.
