Although it may share some of the cute looks of its city-car relation, the Abarth 595c Turismo is undeniably a performance car, with plenty of sporty features on the outside, inside and under the bonnet.
The iconic profile of the 595c Turismo remains a feature even when you lower the electric roof, thanks to the static frame. Every aspect of the 595c Turismo shows a remarkable level of attention to detail. Even the new 17-inch Granturismo alloys are designed to optimise the car’s performance, weighing seven percent less than the standard version, and the 205/40 tyres allow for greater ventilation, so heat can be dispersed more effectively and brakes work more efficiently. Customisation options include ten body colours and a choice of black, white or red for the rear diffuser.
If you haven’t already fallen for this car from the outside, you will when you open the door to find black leather sports seats, satin chrome trims, a curvy satin-finished dashboard and a leather-covered sports-style steering wheel. A five-inch touchscreen and Uconnect system with DAB radio and satellite navigation are all fitted as standard, or you could upgrade to the seven-inch edition with faster processing and the Abarth Telemetry system to record your driving performance.
The 595c is fitted with a 1.4-litre turbo charged T-Jet petrol engine, which can take you from 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds, and can go to a maximum speed of 135mph. In Sport mode, the Garrett turbo delivers 230Nm at 3,000rpm. The 595c is also available as a semi-automatic, with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles for slick gear changes.
Polyelliptical headlights not only look stylish but also offer enhanced illumination, making it safer for you to drive in the dark. If you find it helpful to have even brighter lighting, you can opt for Xenon headlamps. Koni shock absorbers feature frequency-selective damping, which works to maximise your comfort whilst optimising road-holding.
