Road Test: 2013 Abarth 500C Competizione

If you want a sportier version of the Fiat 500, then your choice is the Abarth 500. We took a test drive with the Abarth 500C Competizione which is equipped with a robotised manual transmission. This kind of system always raises questions, so let’s see how it works.

CarFashion: Scorpion Cabrio

The Fiat 500C is a nice and comfortable little car with an open top. Perfect for daily driving and urban cruising. It’s evil twin, the Abarth 500C however, is something completely different. The Abarth version with scorpion badges looks much more fierce and intense, even when standing still. Luckily, our model Sini was brave enough to participate in a photoshoot with this scorpion cabrio. After a little makeover by our styling team, Sini and Abarth made a great pair.

Fiat 500 Abarth Cabrio arrives to North America

Joining the Fiat 500 Abarth, the Fiat 500C Abarth will be available to North American customers in the first-quarter of 2013. To improve aerodynamics and the necessary engine compartment space for the 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine, the Fiat 500c Abarth’s features a more pronounced front fascia. For additional air intake, the signature “Abarth” shield floats on a finned surface and a larger intake below consists of three inlets with broader openings than the Fiat 500c. For a more aggressive look, twin “nostrils” are precisely positioned on the front fascia to maximize airflow in and out of the two engine intercoolers.

Abarth 500 Cabrio Italia

Abarth 500 Cabrio Italia

Distinguished by a special chrome “500 Cabrio Italia” plate with satin effect, 150 cars will be produced with a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet engine that delivers an impressive 160 hp (118 kW) and maximum torque of 230 Nm at 3000rpm in Sport mode. The engine is a 1368cc 4-cylinder 16 valve unit (turbocharged with a fixed-geometry IHI turbocharger) that delivers exhilarating performance. Top speed is 209 km/h while acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes place in just 7.4 seconds. This is partly achieved by the over boost function, activated by the “Sport” button that modulates control unit mapping and turbo pressure in addition to load on the steering wheel. Yet this typically Abarth performance comes with very frugal fuel consumption: 6.5 l/100 km over a combined cycle. For the first time combined with the 160 HP engine, the Abarth 500 “Cabrio Italia” also offers a 5-speed manual gearbox that exalts personal driving style through a more direct relationship with the car. In terms of safety, the Abarth 500 “Cabrio Italia” follows the Abarth 500C standards.

Abarth 500C

The all-new Abarth 500C was created by developing design without neglecting performance. This is not the first time that Abarth has tuned a convertible, and this time the operation affected both looks and engineering. Alongside the classic body colour scheme, Abarth is offering two-tone paintwork for the first time on a 500. Although your eye may linger on the new colours, the long, dynamic spoiler reminds you that the Abarth 500C is first and foremost a top-class sports car. The spoiler not only adds flair to the sporting image but also ensures an improved CZ load and more effective air flow distribution. The Abarth 500C is enhanced by new 17” diamond pattern alloys and a white diamond version of the popular 5 petal design.
