Design of FIAT 500 ABRATH:
The 500′s front end has been designed with a Bumper to accommodate a 1.4 Litre along with its turbo charger and for the purpose of cooling. Moreover, the bumpers come with vertical slashes to relinquish them of cooling air. Fiat claims the Abrath to have spent hours being wind tunnel honed. Over the standard 500 Abarth, which itself gets 16-inch alloy wheels and new springs and dampers for its MacPherson strut front and torsion beam rear suspension, the Esseesse pack brings with it different springs and dampers again; and 17-inch alloy wheels, as well as bigger brake discs and its power increase.
Interior of FIAT ABRATH:
the major rubberized elements of the dash are black, as is the headlining unique to the Fiat Abarth500, leaving the body-colored splash across the center console as the only splashed highlight. In the white of our test car, it feels just right. In red it can look a tad overbearing. Adequate space for those in the front, small rear seats and a small boot.
Performance of FIAT ABRATH:
The FIAT 500 comes with a new air filter that adds some bit of volume to induction noise and helps it respire freely, while there’s a remapped ECU too. Its braking distances of 46.8m (from 70mph in the dry) are impressive, and there’s precious little fade even after a few laps of our dry handling circuit.
The Ride of FIAT ABRATH:
The Fiat Abarth does steer pleasingly, though, with a fine speed and weight to the system, and decent linearity and some feel of front-wheel grip levels; albeit with a hint of springiness around the straight ahead and a touch of torque steer. If you deactivate ‘Sport’ mode it gets lighter, which is better around town, but you lose some of the feedback.
