Pricing for the Fiat 500 Abarth model has finally been announced, starting at $22,000 making it cheaper than the Volkswagen GTI, MINI Cooper S and (presumably) the Hyundai Veloster Turbo.

Though the comparisons with the other models aren't exactly apples to apples on paper, Fiat's 500 Abarth has the most impressive power-to-weight ratio compared. With 160-hp and 170 lb-ft of torque in a 2,533-lb body, the Abarth, in a way, provides the best bang for the buck.

It's powered by a race-inspired 1.4L MultiAir Turbocharged engine and also features Abarth-tuned suspension, brake systems, dual exhaust, turbo-boost gauge with integrated LED shift light and 16-inch wheels. The interior also gets some race-inspired amenities with performance seats featuring a one-piece design with large side bolsters and racing-harness pass through with accent stitching. It'll come standard with BLUE&ME Handsfree Communication, Bose premium audio and steering-wheel mounted audio controls.

I guess simple division is another victim of Friday the 13th. ;)

Seriously, if you're published even on the internet, you should have someone do some fact-checking.

Do you really think corporate is going to pay for editors to help create original high-quality automotive journalism? Their model is to provide recycled fodder gleaned from press releases and other media outlets as cheaply as possible to support their news feed. Don't expect inside tips or exlusive original content from the feed. What you can expect is more mediocre quality news a day later than everyone else.
