When the Fiat 500 Abarth first came out, it was greeted with mixed reviews from the GTChannel staff. It’s reasonably quick, maneuverable, attractive and possesses an exhaust note to die for. It’s also, however, a car with limited interior space.
Getting in behind the well sized, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and settling into a comfortably bolstered seat of the same material, I found myself surprised I didn't have to squeeze into some typically cramped, small car interior.
When Hyundai first announced its Genesis project, many assumed that it would be an entirely new brand. After all, the Korean automaker was quickly establishing itself as the Toyota of the 21st Century, and having an upscale analog to Lexus seemed like a no-brainer.
