    Under power the soundtrack features more bass and the car's intent is clear. You must have JavaScript enabled to experience the new Autoblog. Ads can be annoying. Pull is strong throughout the revs, throttle response is OK, and I didn't think torque steer was very bad at all. Roll stiffness is up by 40 percent with Koni shock absorbers, lower ride height, more negative camber up front and an antiroll bar out back, which the regular doesn't have at all.

    The Fiat Abarth is a hoot to fling around town. I bet it'd be really fun at, say, GingerMan Raceway. I like the way the lineup is looking: The , convertible , long wheelbase , Abarth, and electric.

    That to me is a nice group of cars. It's not Mini crazy with its ,,, models or whatever it is, but still offers something for everyone. That said, yes, the Abarth is fun. Fast, grippy, great seats, great exhaust note…it has it all.

    I like the car's looks and those little Abarth scorpion badges are cool and add to the car's charisma. Fire it up and it idles like a swarm of bees -- love that sound. Under power the soundtrack features more bass and the car's intent is clear. The acceleration is decent -- in line with the Minis of the world by the seat of my trousers.

    The car's ride lets down a wee bit in my opinion. Sometimes it can get choppy and yet there's quite a bit of body roll. Also, I've felt slicker shifters than this car's. I suppose the Fiat would be something different at least. One of each would be ideal, come to think of it. For car enthusiasts, it's really hard to get excited about the regular With only hp there isn't a whole lot of excitement to speak of from behind the wheel even with the five-speed manual.

    Thankfully, there's the Abarth with a much more respectable hp and lb-ft of torque on tap. In addition to the power there are chassis improvements that go a long way towards turning the into a decent performer. Roll stiffness is up by 40 percent with Koni shock absorbers, lower ride height, more negative camber up front and an antiroll bar out back, which the regular doesn't have at all.

    It rides on inch Pirelli P Zero Nero tires. From start-up, you can't help but laugh a little bit at the exhaust note on the Abarth. It's quite loud and sounds menacing when you consider it's a 1. Mash the throttle and there's a brief lull down low before it gets going. Pull is strong throughout the revs, throttle response is OK, and I didn't think torque steer was very bad at all.

    The five-speed shifter is a little notchy with the oversized shift knob. I've said that I think the Abarth would be a great autocross car in the past and another drive of it only reconfirmed those feelings. Throw it hard into a corner and the rear end comes around nicely.

    Body roll is well controlled and there's a good amount of grip here. Steering is responsive to inputs and it's also quite communicative. Brakes are grabby and will take a few minutes to get acclimated to the touchy pedal.

    One thing I would like changed is the seating position. The front buckets have a lot of side bolster, but the bottom cushion is thick, causing you to sit up high. So when you're behind the steering wheel, it doesn't feel like you are sitting in the car and instead are kind of on top of it. But Raynal is right that there are a lot of options in this price range when it comes to sport compacts.
