The Fiat 500 Abarth - A zinger with a stinger

 
The Italian Abarth 500 is small, so the back seats are also in the same way. But up front you will be fine, although a bit bounced to death thanks to stiff suspension. You can get away with the Fiat most of the time though - especially in town where you can scoot about like a maniac.

It's a relatively small 1.4-litre turbo but with a decent 135bhp and 133lb ft of torque. A ‘Sport' button slightly raises the torque available, but not by a big amount; it goes up to 152lb ft for the purpose of overtaking . It means that the tiny 500 is not blistering, but an exceptional joy to thrash. This isn't a car to win a drag race, but through the turns it is great fun. 

Quality is ok. The 500 generally has some fine touches that kick it up above average, but the quality has been shaved in some bits. Not to say that it is bad, but start poking around and you will find some marginally ropey finishes.

All in all, the Italian scorp' is a small car that can do BIG things. Really.
