Price as Tested $26,000: 1.4- Liter 16-valve MultiAir turbocharged I4, 5-speed Heavy-Duty Manual Transmission, 16-inch x 6.5-inch Aluminum Wheels, performance cloth high-back bucket seats

It’s hard to not grin when behind the wheel, whether driving through the city or along curving back roads. The car handles well, has enough bite when the turbo kicks in and is a blessing to parallel park. The “Sport” button turns this little Italian cutie into a beast.


My only dislike is the poor visibility with top all the way down. You might as well get a big hand-held mirror to see behind you.


For a 20-something young adult living in a city, this is the car to have. It’s small yet spacious. It has two personalities; the adorable city driver and the mean, turbo-biting, back-road-ripping Abarth. Who cares that you can’t see what’s behind you when the top is down? It’s always been the Italian style to honk and wave.
