I would like to know if the 2012 and 2013 Abarth has a muffler across the back of the car. I here that they sound great and have the same setup as the Neon SRT 4 had. (on muffler) :wavey: Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

For 2013 they removed the suitcase muffler, the 2012 has one but it is just hollow metal waste of added weight.

Any Abarth produced after mid May 2012 had the suitcase removed and went with straight pipes. Mine was produced before and has it. My understanding they removed the suitcase once Fiat got final ruling from some government agency that they did not need a muffler on the vehicle. However the models with or without the suitcase sound the same.
