Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, continues to invest in the diversity of its fleet following the addition of the sporting Abarth 500 hatchback.
Adding a touch of high performance to the esteemed Fiat 500l, the Abarth injects that little extra bite into a weekend away, whilst maintaining the style, handling and performance which make the original such a favourite amongst city-breakers. The model comes with a punchy 140hp 1.4-litre petrol engine, providing extra zip to a spin in the sunshine, and a host of safety and comfort features designed to help drivers stay cool behind the wheel. The classic retro 500 style is retained, ensuring that the ride continues to look as good as it feels.
“The Abarth 500 is certain to prove a very popular choice amongst customers,” commented Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group. “With that little bit of added performance, it perfectly complements our existing hatchback range, giving customers yet another option for their journey.
“We know that when it comes to a sultry city-break or a spin down to the seaside, our customers want to drive the vehicle that best suits their needs. The Abarth provides yet another cost-effective solution that, we hope, will be the cherry on top of a great many holidays across Britain this summer.”
