Proof that Abarth cars are creating growing numbers of satisfied owners is shown by today's new survey from an independent review site which votes the performance car brand ‘Rising Star of the Year 2014'.
The site, WeLoveAnyCar.com says Abarth drivers are among the happiest car owners in the UK, adding that the Abarth 500, 595 and 695 ranges have created some of the "most satisfied drivers in the UK", scoring a satisfaction rating of 4.34 out of 5.
The results were revealed today in the WeLoveAnyCar.com National Car Awards 2014, which are judged in several categories, including excitement, comfort, driver fun and running costs. Based on average scores given by more than 650,000 real-life car owners, the results are reached after reviewers independently enter their findings.
"The Abarth range is clearly aimed at enthusiasts and from the reviews we've seen on our site, the latest model range has clearly hit the spot," says WeLoveAnyCar.com. "It's great to see a car brand that is aimed so squarely at people who love cars achieving what they set out to achieve, and that's one of the main reasons we're proud to call Abarth our Rising Star in 2014"
Among the comments received from real-owner reviewers were:
"Quite easily one of the best cars I've owned or driven - superb, cheeky fun without being overpowered or outrageously fast."
"I adore this little car, it always puts a smile on my face even just looking at it."
"I just love it. It puts a smile on my face after a rubbish day at work and when big cars get caught out!"
"Of course we think our cars are wonderful," says Gerry Southerington, head of brand, Abarth UK. "So it's refreshing to hear that our customers think so too. A combination of great looks, performance, desirability and value for money has put us in the minds of thousands of happy new owners, as the WeLoveAnyCar.com findings so clearly show."
Available in hard top or convertible form, the Abarth 500 range starts at £14,560 (OTR) for the 1.4 T-Jet 135hp manual.
