Abarth 595

Series II 595

1 Nov 2017

Late in 2017 Abarth updated its feisty 595 hatch and convertible range, consolidating the line-up into two spec levels – 595 and Competizione – while slashing prices by as much as $8000.

Powering the Fiat 500-based hot hatch was a turbocharged 1.4-litre four-cylinder engine that produced 107kW/206Nm in the 595, up to 132kW/250Nm under the hood of the Competizione.

Abarth offered the 595 range with five-speed manual and automatic gearboxes, and the choice of hatchback or convertible bodystyles.

Standard equipment included 16-inch alloys, LED daytime running lights, a 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, integrated voice control, Bluetooth connectivity, DAB+ digital radio, 7.0-inch digital instrument display and satellite navigation.

The Competizione added a number of go-fast goodies including front and rear Koni shock absorbers with adaptive damping, four-pot front Brembo brakes with red callipers, BMC panel air filter, Garret turbocharger, Record Monza exhaust, carbon-fibre and Alcantara steering wheel and 17-inch alloys.
