The highly potent and efficient MultiAir® engine pumps out 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque when mated to the 5-speed manual transmission for a thrilling driving experience.
The innovative technology behind its potent performance includes a twin intercooled turbocharger and an electronically controlled hydraulic system, along with a high-flow, fresh air intake system specifically designed for the Abarth®.
An advanced engine like the 1.4L MultiAir® 16V I-4 Turbo needs every powertrain component to be engineered to deliver.

Inside the FIAT® 500 Abarth® are thousands of finely engineered components designed to harmoniously optimize road performance.
Dual-valve Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) KONI® front shock absorbers deliver maximum grip while stiffer spring rates, along with a 15-mm (0.6-inch) lower ride height, improve overall handling.
The Abarth® Torque Transfer Control (TTC) system automatically distributes engine torque between the front wheels to maximize traction and reduce understeer.
In Sport mode, TTC automatically adjusts the degree of differential locking in response to dynamic factors such as vehicle speed, for world-class performance and improved at-the-limit handling.
Keep an eye on the turbocharger’s output with the exclusive analogue turbo boost gauge. As you accelerate, the turbo PSI is displayed in real time to monitor peak performance.
In the event of a crash, the advanced multistage driver and front passenger air bags6 match output to crash severity. Every model comes with 7 standard air bags including a driver’s knee blocker air bag for comprehensive protection.
The FIAT® 500 Abarth® features a high-performance brake system with semi-metallic brake linings at all 4 corners for precise and confident braking.
