Thought you might be interested in some views from across the Channel.

L'Automobile - 500 Abarth v Cooper

Score: Abarth 14/20 Cooper 14.2/20

500 more fun to drive but poor ride in town or on the open road. Overall victory for the Cooper largely due to superior economy & quality.

0-1000m 29.9secs

Action Auto Moto - 500 Abarth v Twingo RS

Score: Abarth 135/200 Twingo 137/200

500 has great engine, performance, fun to drive, good brakes & well equipped. Narrowly beaten by Twingo RS largely due to it being so much better value and having great chassis.
