Fiat 500L Gets Sporty Abarth Look via Rendering

It would not be at all out of place if Fiat made this exact car, a sportier variant of the already released 500L, the family-friendly child seat-bearer with a cute Italian face. The maker’s history is peppered with mundane cars that gained fame by dropping their Fiat badge and adopting an Abarth one, along with performance mods.

This made up 500L Abarth by X-Tomi would be the car reviewers would struggle to peg down, yet buyers would probably love if it wasn’t exceedingly more expensive than the regular model and didn’t completely compromise that car’s comfort-oriented ride completely. They tried something with this model, but it wasn’t extreme enough to make it onto serious performance radars.

It’s as if Fiat is running really short on ideas and the internet keeps sending them signals of what to do, signals which they keep ignoring and relying on Chrysler profits to stay afloat.

Fiat is blessed with a rich history from which it could endlessly inspire itself, yet it chooses to remain a mediocre brand at best.
