The Fiat 500 lineup goes all-turbo for 2018, with the 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine and a sportier appearance now standard on all models.
The 2018 Fiat 500 lineup is available in three models: Pop, Lounge and the high-performance Abarth.
Pop and Lounge models now come standard with the 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine, which features a single turbocharger, twin intercoolers and a sport-tuned exhaust, and delivers 135 hp and 150 lb/ft of torque – 34 more standard hp than last year’s model.
The MultiAir Turbo engine is paired with a five-speed manual transmission as standard and is available with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Pop and Lounge models are also updated with standard 16-inch aluminum wheels, performance braking system, sport suspension and ParkView rear backup camera.
Exterior updates include body-color front and rear fascias, side-sill ground effects, a sport spoiler, fog lamps and “Turbo” badging on the liftgate.
On the Fiat 500 Abarth models, the track-tested 1.4-litre MultiAir Turbo engine delivers up to 160 hp and 183 lb/ft of torque; while Abarth-tuned hardware offers a world-class ride and track-ready durability.
Other unique Abarth features include a performance suspension; three-mode electronic stability control with an innovative torque transfer control (TTC) system that maximizes throttle performance during on-throttle cornering; 16-inch Hyper Black aluminum wheels; and Pirelli tires with red brake calipers.
An Abarth-designed concentric “double-tip” dual-exhaust system delivers a high-performance look with menacing Abarth-tuned sound.
