Stopped by my parents house today to take my Dads new Abarth out for a drive. He traded up from the Fiat 500 sport to this. The first one on Vancouver Island, and it should stay that way for a few more months.
The car is a blast to drive, it handles wonderfully and is quite quick even in the lower revs. I didn't get to push the car at all, due to my father wanting to follow the break in period (no revs over 4k for the first 500kms)
I'm not a fan of the seats, I wish the bolsters were bigger and little tighter. I also found it very strange that you could not order heated seats in the Abarth... does anyone know the reason for this?
Definately a huge improvement over the 500 sport, but that was to be expected.
I snapped a few pics of our cars while I was there. The Corrado is mine, the mini is also my fathers, his car show / autocross car.
Excuse the dirty interiors, we were out driving all day!
