Available in 595, Tourismo and Competizione versions, the Abarth 595 ramps up performance and excitement for motorists. With the option to select the convertible with a smooth folding roof, the car is one of the most versatile in the Abarth range.
In Competizione form in particular, the 595 feels lifted directly from the track. It has the inimitable low stance and purposeful lean of a sports care – not to mention the smart racing stripes. Tinted windows on the Tourismo enhance the darker atmosphere alongside features including larger wheels, a firmer sports suspension configuration, enlarged brake discs and athletic bodykit.
Aluminium pedals show the sports car inspirations behind the 595. In the cabin, sports seats and a leather-covered steering wheel are standard inclusions. A lowered seating position in bucket seats creates the feeling of being closer to the road and more in command at all times.
Performance and efficiency
Power from the 595’s roaring engine starts from 140bhp but has been increased to a stunning 160bhp in the Tourismo and 180bhp in the Competizione. This gives the car the potential to reach as much as 130mph. Abarth’s 1.4-litre turbo engines generate consistent power, speed and torque, while on-road efficiency is impressive.
Anti-roll bars are included to protect you, and rear parking sensors are an added benefit when reversing. The equipment list for the 595 further includes full electric windows and ABS, showing off the car’s adaptability to different driving situations.
