    Will the 2019 124 Abarth finally get more horsepower or a bigger engine? I almost bought one–twice–but the 164 h.p. was too anemic.

    • fiat says:

      Abarth will probably use the 1.4-liter engine with around 200 horses. If Abarth goes with the Alfa Romeo 1.75-liter turbo-four engine, they will probably detune it from its original 240 horsepower.

  2. Robert Brienzo says:

    When will the 2019 Abarth 124, with more horsepower, be released and what price will it start at?

    • fiat says:

      The 2019 Abarth 124 should hit U.S. dealerships with a $28,000, while the Abarth version could fetch at least $31,000 before options. A release date is still unknown.

  3. robert brienzo says:

    Will it “DEFINITELY” have more horsepower? I don’t mind waiting , but if it’s the same engine, I’d be disappointed. Will it be the 1.4 with just a different “tune” or a different motor?


  4. robert brienzo says:

    What I meant was…if the new one is the same as the 2017, I can buy a “tune” and a cold air intake and do the same. And, I would have it NOW and cheaper. But, if the new car will really have 200 horse, I’d rather buy it from the factory and not jeopardize the warranty.
