    How about skipping Starbucks for one day a week and stop whining? It may be based on a cheap car, but the Abarth is not an economy car. Also, following that Abarth was fantastic, the sound of the overrun is absolutely brilliant. Three inches of snow on the way there, freezing rain on the way home. Neat little car, but the thought of doing the timing belt in that engine compartment is a complete deal killer.

    You start looking for tunnels and concrete walls just to hear the sound reverberate. Besides an exhaust that will never ever let you sneak out of the house at night unnoticed, the Abarth would never be described as inconspicuous. For a car with two Italian brand names, it might come as some surprise that, as alluded to above, the U. Born Karl Abarth, to a Jewish family in Austria, he made a name for himself tuning and racing motorcycles.

    Injuries from a racing accident and the Nazi Anschluss in Austria stopped his racing career and life in Austria. After the war, he moved to Italy, where he had ties dating to the early s. He had great connections. In Italy he was one of the founders of the influential Cisitalia company. In many ways the Fiat Abarth is a spiritual descendant of that car, a car that took the inherent goodness of a FWD econobox and made it even better.

    Tossing it around a corner, even getting the rear end to wag a little, you could tell the base Fiat wanted to handle. The Abarth iteration of the fulfills that promise.

    The Abarth version turns up the wick on how the sticks. The Abarth feels both more dampened and more supple than the base car. Also, considering that the Fiat has a very short wheelbase, the Abarth had a better ride than the Dodge Dart GT that I drove the week before.

    Since both the Dart GT and the U. Make the shift and put your right hand back on the wheel. Steering feel through the chunky steering wheel was uniformly heavy. You had better have a good grip on that chunky steering wheel because, as mentioned, the Fiat Abarth is not a car to casually drive with one hand lightly on the wheel. The steering is fairly heavily weighted, though it lightens up a bit on the highway. Another reason for keeping a firm hand on the wheel is that, as with some other front wheel drive based cars of European origin, the Fiat Abarth has a tendency to follow linear road irregularities.

    It dances a bit on grooved pavement and it will track asphalt that has been worn into wide grooves. That phenomenon is exaggerated with heavy braking or if you manage to elicit some torque steer when accelerating. Combine small size, good handling and sufficient power and you have a perfect tool for the cut and thrust of urban and suburban driving.

    If the hole in traffic is big enough for the Abarth, the 1. The engine was losing some steam as it wound out in the top gear of the upgraded 5 speed transmission, but it still should be able to see if the straightaway is long enough. The modern day was introduced in Europe in , a couple of product cycles ago. Trying to downshift from 5th to 3rd was an iffy proposition and I even had a hard time finding 3rd on an upshift or two.

    Dre audio system sounded like it had some coloration? They were less effective in that regard than the seats on the Dodge Dart GT. Dre had anything to do with that sound system beyond getting paid to put the Beats brand on it. It also was not easy for me to use. On the plus side, my Android phone reliably hooked up to the car for both phone and music. A half century of high performance minicar progress.

    For an almost fully open air Abarth experience, the model is available as a cabriolet the Fiat convertible retains the side roof rails. Just for grins I dug the spare tire out of the boot of the Mini Cooper which my brother is storing here. It may be based on a cheap car, but the Abarth is not an economy car. I got a pretty consistent In addition to requiring premium fuel, the Fiat Abarth requires the use of synthetic engine lubricating oil.
