Add it to the laundry list of Abarth features we do not get standard in the US. The value proposition is slipping to me.
The US cars have a lot less
No Abarth badge on the steering wheel, in fact the steering wheel is the standard wheel, no red stripe at the top.
The startup screen on the MMI says Fiat instead of Abarth
No alcantera trim unless you get the nice Recaros but then the alcantara is only on the seats
No Abarth badging on the front fenders
no Abarth badging under the hood
The muffler is huge and it doesn't have a good sound. I think muffler delete will be popular.
No abarth plaque on center bulkhead.
Black stripe is $1995 instead of free like EU
No red exterior trim options
No standard Brembos.
Blue is not available as a color
I took my down payment and bought a tuned NA Miata.
