Not exactly. Some Abarths have been timed 0-60 m.p.h between 6.4 to 6.9 seconds so time wise it is comparable to the Abarth.
The 6.9 second 0-62 mph spec is for the European Fiesta ST, which has less power than the 197 hp one we get. I would expect the 0-60 time to be around a half second quicker than that. (Those 2 mph make a difference!)
