I lost touch with Fiat quite a few years back when they stopped importing them here on the island. The Cinquecento is alright.

What was the cause of the stoppage?
The main cause was quality issues. Lack of features for the price they were selling was next and generic styling rounded it up. People just weren't buying them anymore, about the same time they stopped buying Renaults. Peugeot on the other hand has a strong presence here.

Update!

2009 Fiat 500 Abarth First Drive
The Rally-Bred Pocket Rocket

First Impressions:Incredibly cool, but you have to keep the turbo on the boil to keep the speed coming.

* Turbocharged, intercooled 1.4-liter inline-4
* 135 hp; 152 lb-ft of torque
* Two-mode electric power steering
* High-performance suspension

The 2009 Fiat 500 Abarth doesn't have to be thrashed to be fun. You can just enjoy it while tooling around Turin, even if the traffic is worse than anything you ever imagined. If you want more, the Abarth obliges, yet you still don't have to scream to the engine's redline to get the most out of the car.

And there's an Italian charm to the Abarth that makes you forget about any faults.
