SPORT MODE: Sometimes you feel like tearing through the streets and showing corners no mercy (while driving responsibly, of course)! That's when it's time to engage the standard-equipped Sport mode that unleashes the full power of the 1.4-liter 16v MultiAir Turbo and provides performance-weighted steering.
ECONOMY MODE: Say you're going to the grocery store and your FIAT 500 Abarth is in Economy mode. The torque in first and second gears will be limited to enhance fuel efficiency and minimize CO2 emissions (now that's really driving responsibly).
LED-ILLUMINATED SHIFT LIGHT with turbo-boost gauge will flash in Sport mode as the engine speed approaches the redline - giving you immediate feedback during high-performance driving.
BLUE&ME Hands-Free Communication technology lets you operate a Bluetooth-compatible phone while keeping your hands on the wheel and use voice commands to make calls or listen to MP3s.
BOSE PREMIUM AUDIO SYSTEM produces high-performance sound through the standard Bose Energy Efficient Series (EES) premium audio system with six premium speakers and subwoofer.
SEVEN STANDARD AIR-BAGS include driver and front-passenger advanced multi-stage air bags, driver's knee air bag, full-length side-curtain air bags and standard seat-mounted side pelvic-thorax air bags.
STANDARD THREE-MODE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) and 4-Wheel Antilock Braking System (ABS) allow adaptability to changing driving conditions.
