    Meanwhile, In Europe



    A shower of international awards for Abarth



    • Abarth wins first place in three categories of the Best Brands competition held by the German magazine AUTO BILD for the design of the 595 and 695.
    • Readers of MOTORSPORT AKTUELL celebrate the Abarth 595 and Abarth 695.
    • Victories in Slovenia and Hungary at the international Best Cars 2020 competition.

    A shower of awards for Abarth in early 2020 has confirmed the great enthusiasm for the Scorpion, which celebrated its 70th anniversary last year. Abarth triumphed in the competitions held by two prestigious German car magazines, as well as victories in Hungary and Slovenia in February, part of the international "Best Cars 2020" project.





    Firstly, Abarth design won three first places in as many categories of the Best Brands 2020 competition, held by the automotive magazine AUTO BILD. Readers of the magazine awarded Abarth first place for best design and, for the third year running, declared Abarth design the best in the city car and convertible categories, too.


    AUTO BILD readers are excited about the Abarth 595/695 and the Abarth 124 Spider, as evidenced by these three new victories in the design categories of the Best Brands competition, said Luca Napolitano, Head of EMEA Fiat and Abarth Brands. This award is an important acknowledgment and makes us very proud, confirming the value of our strategy of devoting great attention to the exclusivity of design of all the models, as well as once again representing the bond that Abarth has forged over time with German readers and with Germany, one of the main markets for our Brand, where the upward trend in early 2020 sales points to a vindication of last years record.





    This was the ninth Best Brands" competition, organized by AUTO BILD. Readers of the print magazine and online editions were asked to justify their purchasing decisions in a range of sectors, including cars, accessories, spare parts and services. In the automotive category, 37 major brands were selected, divided into 14 classes of vehicles, from smaller cars to SUVs. In total, more than 57,000 readers provided feedback.





    MOTORSPORT AKTUELL readers also cast their votes, awarding the Abarth 595 and Abarth 695 a landslide victory in the Racer of the Year category in the election of the best cars and drivers of the 2019 season. 64.2% of the votes went to the Abarth 595/695, which took first place in the Minicar category. MOTORSPORT AKTUELL put to the ballot a total of 67 vehicle models in five categories, along with 135 drivers from nine disciplines.





    The Abarth 595 and Abarth 695 models gained the votes of MOTORSPORT AKTUELL's German, Austrian and Swiss readers, who decided to reward Abarth's strategy of commitment to motorsport, aimed at mass production of technology solutions designed for racing. Technology transfer has contributed to the development of the Abarth 595 series and its five models with output ranging from 145 hp to 180 hp. The Abarth 695 series is reserved for special models, such as the Abarth 695 70 Anniversario, launched to celebrate the cult Italian brands 70th birthday. The model, limited to only 1,949 units to commemorate the year the Abarth brand was founded, features the Spoiler ad Assetto Variabile, put through its paces by Abarth engineers in the FCA wind tunnel in Orbassano, near Turin, to increase fast mixed grip courses and stability at high speeds. In short, the car's performance is improved.





    Last but not least, in February the Scorpion models also collected prestigious prizes in Slovenia and Hungary at the local version of the "Best Cars 2020" competition the international project created by the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, including 21 automotive-specialist media outlets in 17 countries. In particular, the Slovenian magazine Avto Magazin bestowed on Abarth 595/695 the title of "Best Cars 2020" in the "Mini Cars" category, while the Hungarian magazine and website vezess.hu conferred a hat-trick of awards on the Scorpion brand.

    You know you nailed it, design-wise, when a car designed in 2004 as a concept car, released in Europe for the first time in 2007 and remained virtually unchanged since is still winning awards in 2020.

    Still kicking myself that not enough people in this country can appreciate a car like this. Damn shame.

    Individuals here, would love that car. If Fiat USA, actually import it here. Blame it on Fiat USA. All we got here. Is the the same old Abarth platform., since 2012. Same with their answer to the base Turbo model. We didn’t even get the updated exterior of 2016. You can’t appreciate anything, if it’s not offered.

    Not enough volume to justify it. Aside from that, the Toluca plant can build more jack-ups, which they KNOW they can move.

    That's it. If this car had come from a manufacturer which didn't also have JEEP and RAM products, they'd be pushing it hard. Since JEEP and RAM practically sell themselves, it's like printing free money in North America so they simply bully out Fiat from the advertising and manufacturing budget. Allowed it to wither on the vine. Even the "reliability" issues come down to dealer incompetence, which comes down to dealer networks putting their resources -- and best employees -- into their JEEP/RAM lots.

    The seats look great. Are they air-bagged? I wonder if they would fit our cars.

    They are not Air bagged and are not a direct fit for the US models. Big Big pain in the ass to install them on a NA car.
    Mommy didn't buy the Abarth so I drive a Sport
