    Sooo, there will be no increase in power for the Abarth version in the US? I think some people are going to be disappointed. Hopefully this is wrong info.

    It is right from the horses mouth as they say, so the information should be accurate.

    So, 160 horsepower huh? I guess I will NOT be buying one after all. This car needs at least 200 horsepower to really impress me. Such a missed opportunity FIAT.

    I'm glad to see they up'd the torque... that matters more than the hp. But I'm a bit disappointed they didn't at least deliver 170hp. The reason behind my disappointment in the hp is this car is reportedly heavier than the 500 model. Again, I'm glad the torque was at least addressed.

    According to Olivier Francois, this car makes a very easy 160 hp. So it may very well be closer to that figure than we think.
