If you are looking for a car with an exciting drive in an exceptionally stylish compact package, the Abarth 595 Competizione is hard to beat.
An iconic design has been given a sporty makeover for the Abarth 595 Competizione. The front features poly-elliptical headlamps and daytime running lights, chrome trim and the distinctive Abarth logo. Flanking the Abarth stripes at the side are 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, while at the rear the four tailpipes of the dual-mode Record Monza exhaust system remind you that this is a performance car with attitude. The chassis features lowered sports suspension.
The distinctive Sabelt sports seats add style and give good lateral support. These seats are available in black upholstery with an anthracite-coloured outer shell, or in an optional edition with Alcantara and leather upholstery and a carbon surround. The sporty theme continues with the aluminium pedals, gear knob, leather steering wheel and rounded dials on the contemporary dashboard.
The Competizione’s four-cylinder, 16-valve, 1.4-litre petrol engine is available with five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed robotised sequential gearbox. It accelerates from 0-60mph in just 6.7 seconds and can reach a top speed of 140mph. The manual gearbox engine has CO₂ emissions of 139g/km, while the semi-automatic edition gives out 134g/km, and both are compliant with Euro 6 emissions standards. Fuel economy for the manual transmission averages 47.1mpg, and 48.7mpg for the semi-automatic.
Braking distance is minimised with a premium quality system from Brembo, featuring aluminium monoblock fixed callipers. Koni shock absorbers are fitted front and back, incorporating frequency-selective damping technology, which gives optimal braking performance without compromising on passenger comfort.
