Transmission Options for FIAT ABARTH Models

Are you interested in a FIAT ABARTH model? If so, you have a few different transmission models to choose from. You can outfit your FIAT 500 ABARTH and FIAT 124 Spider ABARTH with the optional heavy-duty 6-speed automatic transmission or you can opt for the standard 5-speed manual on the FIAT 500 ABARTH or 6-speed manual on the FIAT 124 Spider ABARTH: 

  • Heavy-Duty 6-Speed Automatic: This transmission delivers higher torque capability than most other standard 6-speed automatic transmissions currently on the market. If you want to take your commute to the next level, switch to Sport Mode. 
  • 5-Speed Manual: A well-placed shifter and perfect pedal position make rev-matched downshifts smooth and simple. 
  • 6-Speed Manual: A short-throw shifter reduces the distance the gear lever has to travel between gears. This means a more exciting level of performance every time you hit the road.

Single-Speed Transmission Information

As the standard offering for the 2019 FIAT 500e, the single-speed transmission was carefully crafted exclusively for this electric vehicle. The output from the electric-drive motor is transferred to the wheels. At the same time, a reduction gear allows for lower electric motor input speeds, reduced battery use, and all-around more economical energy use. What’s even better? This vehicle operates efficiently without sacrificing performance.
