Fiat has made an announcement of the all-new Fiat 500 Abarth models that will have improved performance and specifications to attract more buyers in the market. The all-new 2015 Fiat 500 Abarth and Abarth Cabrio will now include specially tuned automatic transmission that adds to the overall performance of the vehicle. The vehicle will be powered by track-proven 1.4 liter MultiAir Turbo engine that has the capability to produce around 157 horsepower and 183 lb feet of torque.
The engine will be mated with optional six speed automatic transmission which has been reinforced with more clutch plates and superior heat treatment that can handle higher torque while the car is in motion. There are other high performance treatment changes made to the vehicle like fuel cut upshifts, rev-matching downshifts and brake-assist downshifts that make the car more aggressive and ensure that the driver has superior control over the vehicle even at higher speeds. Fiat has not announced the final retail price of the vehicle yet.
