This is one of the best cars I've ever driven and I traded in a Subaru Legacy to purchase it plus I've previously owned a Lexus IS200 Hyundai Coupe sevral Hondas all from new - nothing else matches it!
I loved it so much I bought a new one!. It is just such fun to drive. Compared to other small hot hatches - great value for money. If I have had a bad day at the office I always cheer up on the drive home. She is called Tasha - beautiful but packs a punch, and she certainly turns heads!
Can't help but smile every time I drive this little car. I traded in my Mini Cooper S which I loved but as soon as I saw the Abarth, I knew I had to have it. For a small car it has more leg room in the back than the Mini although the ride can be a bit bumpy especially in 'Sport' mode, but the pros certainly outway the cons. Love it!!!
Quite easily one of the best cars I've owned or driven - superb, cheeky fun without being overpowered or outrageously fast. Had a few problems but all fixed under warranty without question making even the bad bits relatively pleasurable.
The only gripe is the suspension which rides hard over bumps and potholes.
