In the market for a fuel efficient car and couldn't beat the Dart in all around value. But if you don't need the size Dart offers but like a car that's a blast to drive and economical check out the Abarth. I did and bought one.Got a base one but it's plenty enough for me. I thought a fwd car couldn't be built with a smooth and fluid shifting transaxle and a clutch that does not ingage /disengage in the top two inches of pedal travel.It feels like a good rwd set-up. With no turbo lag that I coud detect you have to be able to shif fast. Having driven cars with turbochargers and manual trans a certain skill level has to be developed to go through the gears smoothly. Not the best car to learn to drive a manual,but if you have patience it will work out. The suspension and brakes are a perfect match for the drivetrain. The body is good and solid so the suspension can perform like it was designed. The driving position and visibility is perfect. Getting into the car for the first time caught my attention because the ride height is such that you sit in the car not like my sons Sebring which it feels like you sitting on the floorboard after a freefall and literally have the climb back out. It's easier to get in and out than my 08 Charger. I don't know if all the sheet metal same gauge thickness as the hood, that on most economy cars you could almost twist it like a wash rag,I couldn't even get the hood to give a little. The folks at the dealership refer to it as an Italian sports car. To me a sports car has to be rwd but I guess you could classify it as fwd sports car.The people at the ds claim the engine is twin turbo but isn't it single turbo twin intercoolers?
