Exciting things are happening with FIAT in the North American market. Say hello to the 2013 FIAT 500c Abarth and the 2014 FIAT 500L!

The ultimate high-performance Italian small car adds open-air driving excitement with the FIAT 500 Cabrio (500c) Abarth. This little gem offers a lot of interior space which has plenty of rear-seat legroom and shoulder room that blows the competition out of the water.

Not only does the 2013 FIAT 500c Abarth look good, all design elements are designed to improve the car’s performance. It comes with cloth-top-mounted spoiler which extends the roofline and improves the vehicle’s aerodynamic behaviour by creating additional down-force. This is one sleek looking machine that is aggressive and fun.

New for 2013, the segment-exclusive integration of Beats by Dr. Dre audio system offers passengers of the FIAT 500c Abarth a high-definition music experience the way the artist intended.

“The new FIAT 500c Abarth delivers the wicked attitude and track-proven capabilities of the hatchback model, now with the rush of open-air Italian performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of FIAT Brand for North America-Chrysler Group LLC. “And with the push of a button our new turbocharged cabrio can unleash that added sense of freedom, while offering one of the most respected soundtracks of all-time, the rasp from its signature Abarth-tuned dual exhausts.”

You will enjoy the powertrain of the Abarth name. The 2013 FIAT 500c Abarth comes with a lowered body height, beefier suspension, larger brake and wider tires for race-track-ready performance. It is also equipped with the 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine, has 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.


The 2014 FIAT 500L offers two more doors plus room for five passengers. It is designed on the new “small-wide” architecture, this FIAT offers 26 inches more length, plus 6 inches more in height and width for best-in-class headroom and front legroom, added versatility and 42% more interior space.

“The all-new FIAT 500L extends the reach of the FIAT brand in North America and will keep our customers within the brand as their lifestyle needs expand,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of FIAT Brand North America-Chrysler Group LLC. “Those who love the style and performance that only the Italians can create, can now enjoy space for five, functionality, practicality and value. The FIAT 500L is the whole package and it now brings its unique flavour to the North American market.”

The 2014 FIAT 500L has outstanding performance. It comes with a six-speed manual transmission, or segment-exclusive six-speed dual dry clutch transmission (DDCT). It is equipped with the award-winning 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine has 160 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.

The outer appearance of the 2014 FIAT 500L is styled to perfection. It has an aggressive style thanks to front and rear fascias with Nero accents for an extremely bold look. It also has some bad-a$$ aluminum wheels.

The new lineup of FIAT vehicles make this fun brand even more versatile than ever. Now there is even more attitude and room to meet customer’s needs in all walks of life.
