That seems to be the general results when compared. Mini can't beat the Abarth in price, but it all boils down to the individual. Yes, the Mini S has more power and all but the Abarth has a lot going for it as well. Mini has been around for a while now and the prices keep going up. You can get into an Abarth for much less, then mod the heck out of it for relatively cheap. The fact the aftermarket from Italy is teaming up with MOPAR means lots of things are coming fairly quickly for U.S. Abarth owners.
