The characterful and feisty Abarth 595 provides sports car performance in compact dimensions. It’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Choose from three powerful performance versions.
The 595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione each boast bespoke styling treatments, with their own individual alloy wheels. Lowered suspension is standard and holds you closer to the road for sharper turn-in. Opt for the 595C to enjoy wind-in-the-hair thrills on dry days thanks to its folding fabric roof.
The 595 provides luxurious and intimate seating for four, with leather upholstery and a fierce exhaust note mixing comfort with aggression. Air conditioning keeps temperatures perfect too, while a flat-bottom steering wheel and body-coloured dashboard inserts (on the 595) emphasise the sensation of specialness.
A large suite of safety technologies protects occupants in the event of an accident. Seven airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system and Electronic Stability Programme all come as standard.
A five-inch Uconnect infotainment system is standard and can be upgraded to a seven-inch system, bringing satellite navigation to join the standard DAB digital radio with Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity.
The 595 is powered by a punchy 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Choose the standard model’s 143bhp, or upgrade to the 163bhp Turismo or 178bhp Competizione. 0-60 is dispatched in under eight seconds in even the standard version, dropping to a fraction over 6.5 seconds in the Competizione.
