For 2013, Fiat is adding a new Turbo model to the 500 range, that sits in the middle of the Abarth and the base model. This version features a 135-HP 1.4L MultiAir turbo engine with 150 pound-feet of torque: 34 more HP than the standard 500, but 25 less HP than the Abarth. The car also includes a five-speed manual transmission, sport suspension, better steering calibration, stiffer shocks and upgraded brakes.
Visually the Turbo features an aero kit, smoked-out headlamps, sport seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Exciting for some will be the addition of a Beats by Dre audio system. Pricing starts at $19,500 USD.
