I have to believe it's the power to weight difference. But I would also think the Fiesta feels more planted at speed. I feel like rolling an Abarth wouldn't really be all that hard haha

Haha well unlike you, I’ve only got 2 doors so I’m sure your backseat is at least somewhat functional! No human being over the age of 2 could ever comfortably get or sit back there. But oh my god, once the back seat is out, there’s a deceiving amount of space! If you haven’t guessed from my name and avatar, I’m in a

Also, I’ve owned 25 cars in my life but only ever bought 2 brand new. Both were the Abarths!

Thank you! Every manufacturer has some version of nardo gray these days, but I still love it and when I saw it was an option, I couldn't resist!

Bummer! There's probably some still on lots somewhere 😂 Of course probably not the spec you want. But then again, they're probably dirt cheap!

I hope to! This is my second Abarth and had planned to do fotd 3 years ago with my first one (especially since I’m in Atlanta and it’s not far at all) but the Abarth was wrecked a month before the event! I just got this one in June but hope to do some fun things with it. Have to find the balance between BMW and

The Abarth is stupid light. I was actually shocked when I looked up the weight. And it's even lighter than that since I -like probably 99% of Abarth owners- removed the backseat!

thank you! this is actually my second... i had a 2015 that was wrecked but i agree, they are fine little cars. not without their faults but everything else(fun factor, exhaust note, etc.) makes up for those.

I think for comparison purposes alone, you left off the Abarth. Especially if Mini made the cut!

you take the ticket, fix the light, argue it in court, and 98% of the time it gets thrown out.

Funny story (to me)... I was in Nashville over July 4th and was bar-hopping with my gf. We ended up on a rooftop bar where these 2 women were playing. They were called Sweet Leah. Solid talent in a city full of solid talent. Whatever, never thought about them again. Until I went down a 3 links deep rabbit hole reading

Well... I wish I could relate. I just crossed 500 miles on mine and I am at 17.8. Granted this is 100% city driving but still...

29?! Lol if that’s happening you’re driving it wrong and might as well get an even cheaper non Abarth 500. I think I’m getting 17 with mine right now.

I’ve got a question... say you are in an accident which is your fault and your dashcam shows this. Can the people you are in the accident with request your dashcam footage?
