Looking to buy 2018 Abarth. Trofeo or Turismo?
« on: December 01, 2021, 03:39:21 pm »
Hi newbie here. I’m looking to buy a second-hand (2018 MY) Abarth. Should I pick Trofeo or Turismo? Both cars cost about the same price and seem to have similar performance specs. Any differences in suspension/ride stiffness, exhaust notes, or comfort features? Or, would you really recommend going for Competizione?

    The performance is the same.

    The Turismo has a leather "luxury" interior and standard exhaust. Kind of grown up.

    The Trofeo has the same engine, but, if I remember correctly, it has the Monza exhaust, dark wheels and coloured mirrors, cloth seats, a bit more youthful. Kind  of a halfway house between the Turismo and Comp. I think the suspension set up is the same, but could be wrong.

    You need to have a look ad decide whicj you prefer.

    Interior is a bit higher spec on the Turismo, it has the leather seats, the digital climate controls, the ali gear knob, and I think a couple of other extra trim bits.

    Trofeo has IHI turbo, Turismo has Garrett same as the Comp (although it's running at a lower power than the comp) and has a few extra bhps.

    Trofeo has the Monza exahust so a bit louder and extra pops where as the Turismo has the standard Abarth exhaust.

    Not sure if this is the same on all MY Trofeos, but when I looked at one it had 16" wheels with 195 tyres where as the Turismo has 17" with 205 tyres.

    Turismo interior is definitely nice, and though it's simple enough to swap over other bits and bobs as and when needed, the Turismo's extrass would cost a lot more to replicate.

    So I'd say go for the Turismo unless the Trofeo has some super-expensive add-on like £2k worth of Sabelt carbon fibre seats; as of yesterday my Turismo's got the Monza fitted :)

    My Trofeo came with 17/205 wheels, doesn't it also have more sporty suspension? It is a fairly firm ride, love the Monza exhaust and grey/yellow colour scheme (and black wheels).
