The Engine

The 2017 Fiat 500 is a small coupe that is equipped with a small 1.4 litre 4 cylinder engine offering 101 horsepower in the Pop and Lounge versions. If you go up in the line-up, you will get 160 horsepower. All the 500s models have the option of either 5 speed manual or 6 speed automatic transmissions except the 500e model. If you choose a 6 speed auto transmission, you will get more power and a more responsive shift. However, choosing an auto transmission will result in a fuel efficiency drop of about 10%.

When it comes to the turbocharged Abarth, it offers 160 horsepower and 500e on the other hand has 111 horsepower pumping at 147 lb-ft of torque. This lightweight vehicle is easy to drive and its engine also does a pretty decent job in making it work effortlessly. The acceleration might not be spectacular, but is enough for this mini coupe. And if you are looking for better acceleration, go with the turbocharged Abarth version that offers 160 horsepower. Everything about this model is better than others in the line-up including braking and handling.
