Did this video help you?

Bill Blinky: Thanks mate, that was a good review. Ages ago, when I had hair and lived in the city, I used to drive a Fiat 500 with a 500cc donk as my daily commute & I always wondered what it would be like with more pep. These days I live in the country & down a dirt road, so this car is not for me. But I've never forgotten my Italian love affair. ;-) 

princeston: !Update!: Available in an Aisin 6-Speed Automatic for 2015 models (so does the Abarth 500) :D

RockerChris1234: Fiat is a great car company I don't know why these dumb people still think that fiat's are crap. Fiat now owns Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge. So keep in mind next time you comment about your big V8 it might have been designed by FIAT!

rodimo dubb: Fiat owns 85% of dodge helped the American automaker to bounce back from recession, fiat also has to factorys back east in the us that builds both the 500 and the 4door 500L. So im glad that fiat help us in the u.s. 

mauisku: love the armrest, get the freak off my armrest im the driver lol

kklamps: I love my fiat 500 turbo, but I am one of those people that just need it to commute to work. Very economical!

simone michielon: orgoglio italiano!!

dan Beu: Its a gay clown car

Viperfast1992: I have one just like this, however mine has red leather seats to match. i love it

Johnny Unitas: Great vid!

PlasticShack SpaceJed: I bet it don't cost $4000 dollars to make one of these cars , and the French will make money buy American made cars folks Unless France sales Fiat to the United States and jobs for people in USA keep your little cars.

viralengine908: well, it depends on region of manufacture. the puntos in europe that i drove in were well built, with clean lines and acceptable panel gaps, but the one I bought back in india is made in a different factory, and definitely looks like it's definitely been built to a price.

jack lewis: If its any help i have both the fiat 500 and abarth 500, there both fours years old and have never had any major mechanical problems whatsoever (touch wood) neither do i know of anyone else who has either. The F500 in particular is very simple, so theirs less to go wrong.

orangedac: ..and this works for the Fiat 500 ? I know Civics are modded (modified) that way usually by tapping into the CAN diagnostic network on the automobile and playing around with settings. But I did not know that kind of mod was also do-able on a Fiat ! I'm thinking the Fiat 500 Turbo (not Abarth but Turbo model which is one step lower) probably has this mod. In other words, its the same car as the regular Fiat 500 but with these software tweaks. What do you think ?

Outdoor Aesthetics: you realize the same company makes Maserati and Ferrari right?

Mathieu Levac: Wrong, check on the forums. A chip and an Intake =200 Crank HP.

hawkermustang: TOO MUCH MONIES!

Motormouth Canada: Not true. The Turbo model here is less than a $1000 different than the US. In fact, the car is on sale in Canada right now and it is actually cheaper.

Outdoor Aesthetics: it is 19500 in America with all that plus nav is around 22000

jack lewis: Ok, fair point on the Garret turbo, i was not aware of that. I based my thoughts on it having IHI turbo which is the smaller one. It seems like overkill to give it a turbo that big if it has such modest performance stats. Lets just agree a 500T with a chip on its own could produce a nice amount of power but not quite 200.

Mathieu Levac: Well, when you think about it. It costs less to buy a bunch of the same thing, and just software reduce the power then buy a bunch of different parts and still have to tune it differently. PC video cards have been doing it for years. Reducing clockspeed and other such variables. Costs them nothing extra to do it this way.

Motormouth Canada: Reliability is hard to judge on a new car, it takes time to find these things out. There are many sources of information like JD Power reports etc. This car is built in the old PT Cruiser factory, which had very good reliability towards the end of its run. The reality is that my job is to point out the features of the car, reliability is too hard to predict on a new model.

stephen rocillo: found one of these for 300 bucks man i am lucky.

supercooled: You get more utility, more power and cheaper in a hatchback Accent. Sure it's not 'Italian' or cute, but if money is an issue, there are so many better choices for the price range. For $25k, the Nissan Juke Nismo can be had. Rockford Fosgate system, push-button start, alcantera seating, 197hp turbo i4 1.6litre. Great on fuel and would give the Cooper S and Abarth a serious run for its money.

Capitancanguro1: This car is reliable,it comes with 5 years warranty.

Alessio S: it isn't underpowered at all, the drivetrain is much more efficient than the draditional american 3 speed automatic and it weights about 1,1 metric tonne. the torque is directly present thanks to the multi air tecnology (without butterfly valve in the intake) but all sayd, not a car for a man, it doesn't fit us propper. Prefer the alfa 159

Mathieu Levac: No problems, got it in may so no winters with it yet. Yes i have THIS exact model, in silver so yes turbo. Downsides, im 6'3" so i dont fit in a car equiped with a sun roof, so i didnt get one. An other downside for me anyways because of my height, is the non telescopic steering wheel, i feel like i have to reach too much to grab it with one hand. An other thing, the drivers seat goes up and down, but the passanger's doesnt, so if that person is tall, his head will be in the roof liner.

jack lewis: Doubt you'd get 200hp with a 'little chip'. even my chipped Abarth isnt getting that much. I dont think that turbo is even capable of 200hp, if you want the magic 200 you'd need to upgrade to a garret 1446 turbo. remap that engine and you could get around 165 - 170.

Mathieu Levac: No they didnt, but you get used to it. Its not necessarily that its high, its that it doesnt move at the bottom then snaps when you let it got an inch. It actually curves instead of going in an out like on all my other manual cars. Just to need to get accustom to it thats all.

ormand3000: Yeah and? We supply your freaking country with GASOLINE and an ENTIRE INDUSTRY (Oil Frak/Oil Shale) and THIS is the attitude we get repaid back with? 2 faced motherfreakers!

Alessio S: it takes 1 lil chip reprogramming and you have 200 HP. and it is a stupid statement you do, in fact the porsche was underpowered for a porsche with other modifications you can go even further.. but not recommanded for a dayly use car

trumpet12345: Because that is a good comparison.

jack lewis: But there is no evidence of a 500T producing 200HP using a chip. Which was the point i was making.

N.E.U.R.O.OFFICIAL: does it really go in water?

Jay Smith: Song ?

RobotShlomo: For a car this size, how much power do you expect, or even need? That's right, it's 2013, and the old idea of Americans feeling insulted at the prospect of driving a car like this should be history by now.

Mathieu Levac: it's a 1.4..... Turbo doesnt always = MAD POWER. it drives fine and has plenty of pep at low RPM. Cant say that for any other N/A 1.4-1.6L engine...

BulldozerJack: Why is that? It's a very european car, perfect for the city. You don't prove your manliness by driving a pickup truck.

MegaCrazyone123: the usa abarth has been dynoed at 155whp and 175 WT and gm has a recall to up the car to 22psi and 180bhp

jack lewis: Well for a start the original point was that a chip could take it to 200HP, an intake wasn't mentioned and secondly i am on the forums, im member of the Abarth owners club. My chipped Abarth produces around 165-170. Even the Novitec website and TMC websites dont claim there tuning boxes/ chips could produce 200HP.

verrywellhung: Gawd. This guy is such a motormouth.

Mathieu Levac: Well, ive seen dyno charts... and idk about Novitec, but the 3 companies ive heard around here (North America) are TMC, RoadRaceMotorsport and MM. Btw, by abarth, you mean North American Abarth OR Europe Abarth?

orangedac: Thanks for the info. This car sounds perfect for me. I'm only 5"4. I don't sit comfortably in larger cars. My head does not rest comfortably on the head rest unless I stretch my neck. I have to adjust the chair to the point where I'm too close to the steering wheel. My elbows don't reach the arm rest and its tiring keeping my hands on the wheel all the time For a big guy, why did you not go for a larger car? In 2014, sub-compact SUVs are coming out. I might check those out before deciding

supersnake1599: ABARTH NOT ABART HOLY freak

orangedac: What would you say are the down sides of this car? Have you had any problems with it? Does it work well in the winter? Do you have the Turbo version?

Mathieu Levac: Oh, and here both the 500T and the Abarth have the Garret gt1446 turbo.

Mathieu Levac: Google ABARTH Engine Module Comparison Dyno. Should be the first link.

MelCanuck: Cute car. I like this model much. But i'd also consider the forthcoming 200hp Fiesta ST

Douglas Machado: Nice review
