It’s good to know that an extra dose of horsepower is met with an extra dose of safety and security in the 2014 FIAT 500 ABARTH and ABARTH Cabrio.
The ABARTH Three-Mode Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with performance four-wheel disc antilock braking system (ABS) allows the vehicle to adapt to changing driving conditions.
ESC helps to enhances driver control and helps maintain directional stability in critical driving situations, such as on snow, ice or gravel. When the system senses a difference between driver input and the vehicle path – if, for instance your wheels slip – it applies selective braking and reduces throttle input, helping you to regain stability and control.
The default Full ON mode provides maximum traction control for normal everyday driving. The driver-selected Partial OFF mode allows limited wheel-slip for more aggressive high-performance driving dynamics. For the experienced track-driving enthusiast, traction control can be disabled completely by turning ESC into Full OFF mode.
With power under the hood and a design that turns heads, it’s nice to know that the FIAT 500 ABARTH and ABARTH Cabrio
are there to help you keep it all under control. To find out more about the ABARTH’s 35+ advanced standard and available safety features, visit FIATUSA.com
