Rendering Of A Fiat 500 Abarth Based On The New 500e Is Very Convincing

It didn't take long for digital artists to render the all-new Fiat 500 and give us a look at what the Abarth might look.

  • The upcoming Fiat 500e will be all-new while the regular 500 continues on.
  • The Fiat 500 is dead in Canada but we’ve always liked the Abarth.
  • This rendering of a potentially new Fiat 500 Abarth could make a case for its return.

The Fiat 500 launched in Canada in 2011 to some fanfare. The car’s design, introduced in Europe for the 2007 model year, was already ageing but it mattered not – The Fiat was immensely cool, quirky and unique. The Abarth version arrived two years later but it was almost too little too late as interest in the 500 was already dying off.

New Fiat 500e Evolves Where It Counts And Is Ready To face The Competition

Of the many reasons why the Fiat 500 fizzled out, other than reliability, was that it severely lacked versatility. At best, it was a 2+2 seater with an extra glove box in the rear. It was also immensely expensive for what was delivered. On the other hand, the Fiat Abarth was something of a bargain at $25,000. For the price, no other small car brought as much attitude, personality and noises to the table. Despite this, all other downsides, including a terrible driving position still applied.

The new Fiat 500e will ride on a slightly larger platform which means the car will be marginally larger, longer and taller than the old 500. Thus, the new 500 is roomier on the inside… It is doubtful that this is enough to warrant the return of the 500.

With its larger black, lowered ride height, multiple air intakes on the deeper front bumper and necessary red accents throughout the car, including the interior, this Abarth rendering is convincing.
