Wanted something small and fun to drive for my commute and this car is exactly that. Not sure about reliability yet. Hoping that it holds up for a few years with regular maintenance. Feels good on the highway, but scooting around the back roads is where you want to be.
Im a tall guy at 6'2" and I fit comfortably but without the sunroof option. I enjoy driving this car everyday and the stock exhaust is amazing and will turn heads as this is a sleeper most people don't know about. The engine and manual gearbox feels great and hopefully reliable. My only issue is the materials used in the interior as it's all hard plastic. I do hear a bit of rattle between the windows and door panels and one air vent slider is not working but should be handled under warranty. It's a fun ride and handles curves well.
The US version of the Abarth is completely different than the EU version. With ~$1500 and a couple of hours in the garage you can transform this "cute little girls car" in an absolute (~280hp) beast. It performs like crazy and sounds better than most sports cars while doing so. Don't buy this car if you don't like attention! The reliability is italien ... get the Abarth and get it as stick!!
Got it when I was in a pinch. Great price for a brand new car. Great gas mileage. Took it on a couple long trips. Gets tight with 4 people in it, but 2 is just fine.
