The Abarth range is generously equipped from the base model and up .The best way to experience it? Slip in to the Sabelt Corse seat, grasp your hands round the leather steering wheel and hear the car roar to life as the 1.4-litre turbo T-Jet engine kicks in. Starting at 135bhp with a 0-62mph time of 7.9 secs, the Abarth range is certainly quick off the line.

Abarth 500 spec

The standard kit on the Abarth 500 includes 16” 8-spoke alloy wheels, leather trimmed steering wheel with remote controls and Blue&Me Bluetooth system. Under the bonnet, the Abarth 500 is capable of a very nippy 135bhp produced from a 1.4-litre turbo T-Jet engine. Even more impressive is that the fuel consumption has not been sacrificed for power, it is still capable of 43.5mpg combined.
