Evo's verdict on the Abarth 500
« on: November 11, 2008, 05:22:38 pm »
The 500 is great fun - charmed everyone.

Overall very positive apart from the "terrible" steering which feels like it is controlled by bizarre magnets!

Engine is a corker - genuinely quick and brimming with energy.

Where the Twingo Renaultsport leans the 500 stays flat and you get info from all four corners at the same time.

You feel whats going on through the seat of your pants.

Stiff set-up gives a choppy ride but never headache inducing like the Panda 100HP.

500 might look like it is in Primer Grey but it is the most colourful car here, endearing it to all who drove it.

Beats the Imprezza STi 330S, Twingo 133 and Scirocco 2.0 Tsi in their Car of the Year contest.

    Good review, Maybe its just me being used to the electric power steering, but I dont think its bad at all.
