@ Nik Jac: You're right, top speed isn't nearly as important as acceleration and braking, in that, the Fiat 500 Abarth and Mini Cooper S are very similar, and the Fiat gets better fuel economy. In my country, Fiat 500s are selling like hot cakes, vastly outselling Mini Coopers.

The top speed is less important than global performance of a car. In the normal use, Cooper S and 500 Abarth thera are very similar but the 1st car is very expensive! For 30000€ I prefer for example Giulietta QV with our 235cv and 340Nm of torque!!

@ Nik Jac: I wouldn't say very similar, the Mini Cooper S has the legs on it, it's 12 MPH faster top end, but in the city that doesn't matter, so you actually do have a point.

From what I hear, the Fiat 500 Abarth is a feisty little car.


User avatar

For me this car is the best of sports citycars and the price it's cheaper than Mini Cooper S! But the performance is very similar...

They started selling the Fiat 500 Abarth in America this year, the base 500 is a big hit over here, we can't get enough of them.

The only hot hatch to buy in the current world is the BMW MINI JCW. Power to Weight ratio 183.95 hp/tonne. Fastestlaps.com

It has 158bhp. official 0-100 is 7.4 for the esseesse. Real 0-100 is about 6.8. Stats should be fixed if this website wants to be seen seriously.

158bhp it is then ;)


User avatar

Scottish Car Addict  8y  

My Opinion On The Best Hot Hatch For Value For Money would probably be Either the 2009 Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart, Or The Hyundai i30 2.0 CRDI Premium.
Or The Renault 5 Turbo Maxi

ARgue argue arg-u... You fuds Have Been Arguing Since 10/11/08!
If You Want To Be Pernickety, Then Its 158bhp
Bloody Simpletons...
Instead of arguing about power, when it is not the main issue, You cant change stats all the time,
Power is speed without control, Stop Trying To Be A Bunch Of smart alec's And Agree On Whats Listed To The Right
Life's To Short Mate.

rxbkrs- if you look at the engine spec to the left it already says 160hp.

It's changed now.


User avatar
