15. Fiat 500 Abarth
The Fiat 500 Abarth is a small, screaming, front-wheel drive hot hatch with loads of charm and race car handling. They based it on the subcompact Fiat 500. But the 500 Abarth is a performance version with a 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and 160 HP. That may not sound like much.
But this lightweight car is more than enough for lively performance and neck-snapping acceleration. Fiat introduced the Abarth as a 2009 model. It is still in production, so there are many models to choose from today. The prices range from $15,000 to $18,000 for top-used models.
