For 2013, the Fiat 500 lineup gets two new models with improved performance. The new Fiat 500 Turbo adds a 135-horsepower, 1.4L turbocharged engine, plus various other performance improvements and a dressed-up appearance, while the Fiat 500 Abarth introduces a 160-hp version of the 1.4L MultiAir engine plus an Abarth-tuned suspension and additional extras aimed at track-day enthusiasts. The big news for those who choose the standard-engine Fiat 500 and 500c convertible models is that they now achieve 31 mpg city, 40 highway--up 1 mpg in the city and 2 on the highway, respectively. Also new to the lineup for 2013 is a 'Beats by Dr. Dre' audio system that offers "a high-definition music experience the way the artist intended." Otherwise, the 2013 Fiat 500 is offered in two new exterior colors--Luce Blu (light blue) and Verde Azzurro (blue-green)--bringing the total number of paint hues to 15, with 15 different seat-color and trim combinations to complement them.
Nimble, responsive driving feel; good gas mileage; strong, track-ready performance (Abarth); flamboyant exterior; practical, stylish interior
The Fiat 500 is a small 4-seater that, thanks to turbocharging in the new Fiat 500 Turbo and Abarth, as well as a more athletic look, stand as direct rivals to the Mini Cooper S. Like much more expensive Italian cars--and thanks in part to Mopar--the Fiat 500 offers more customization potential than is typical for an inexpensive small car. With a Fiat Studio system at dealerships, buyers can customize with interior and exterior accessories, striping packages and more. Fiat 500 Abarth models also live up to the "small but wicked" approach that inspired the 1960s-era performance models that inspire it. The idea is to offer high performance in a small car, with a dash of Italian exotic personality and pedigree. Safety is also a strong point for the 500; it's been named an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick.
