Abarth Fiat 500 - Does it honour the legend?


Wrench Pro
I have always been a fan of the legendary Fiat 500. In fact I've spent many hours trying to convince the other half that it would make the perfect family car - especially with a few mods :wink:

Now, however, we have a new 500 to gawp at, what is the concensus? Does it live up to expectations? Have Fiat achieved what VW failed with the new Beetle?

Is 150bhp enough in the Abarth version of the new Fiat? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts guys.
