The Fiat 500 is a city car built by Italian automaker Fiat since 2007. The car is currently produced in Tychy, Poland, by Fiat Auto Poland S.A. and in Toluca, Mexico, by Chrysler Group LLC. The 500 is a four-seater, three-door hatchback. Now this Abarth is planning to launch in the India sectors.
Fiat 500 Abarth
The Fiat 500 Abarth made its India debut at the Auto Expo 2014 early last year and was supposed to be launched in the first-half of 2014. However, various factors ensued that the Fiat 500 Abarth India launch was pushed forward to early 2015. The launch was again postponed due to a rise in excise duty and unforeseen resignation of the then Fiat India President and MD, Nagesh Basavanhalli. However, it is now being claimed that Fiat India has once again started preparing itself to launch the 500 Abarth on our shores and the Fiat 500 Abarth India launch could take place sometime next month. Essentially, the Fiat 500 Abarth is the performance-tuned version of the cutesy 500 hatchback and the upcoming model carries various go-faster bits to leave us all performance junkies really excited.

The 500 Abarth comes with a 1.4 liter, 16-valve, turbocharged T-Jet petrol that is good enough for a maximum power of 160 BHP and a peak torque of 230 NM. The motor comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. If the figures from the manufacturer are to be believed, the 500 Abarth can hit 100 km/h from standstill in merely 7.9 seconds and can reach to a top speed of 205 km/h. You get to choose between 16-inch or 17 inch alloys, gas-discharged headlights and sunroof are on offer to make your ride way more stylish. Cross drilled brake discs on all four wheels coupled with 7 airbags; ABS and EBD take charge of the safety department. The twin exhausts will be producing a pretty sweet note in our opinion and the sporty seats which team up with a high end audio system will add to the drive experience.
It may be noted that the Jeep brand is still being contemplated due to fluctuations in the Indian currency. Fiat has now strengthened its dealer network, has launches lined up with high end cars coming in and is looking positive in its approach.
