The 595 is a super city car, oozing style and delivering the sporty performance we have come to expect from the Abarth range. The hot hatch has had a makeover for 2016, and the result is a supercharged edition of the classic 500.
Iconic Italian identity is as clear as ever in the latest edition of the Abarth, but refined and brought right up-to-date for 2016. Exterior features such as the new air intakes in the bumper, cleverly-designed skirts and spoiler all contribute to the performance of the 595.
Dual chromed steel exhausts not only look good, but also enhance the sound of the engine.
The sporty appearance is enhanced by little details such as chrome trims and the customisable rear diffuser, which is available in a choice of three colours.
The cabin of the 595 is striking, with sports seats, a leather steering wheel and a body-coloured dashboard. Select the Sports option and the car instantly adjusts the steering, torque output and the accelerator. It also switches the control panel to racing mode, delivering a new range of information about the vehicle and its performance.
The Abarth 595 features a 1.4-litre turbo T-Jet petrol engine, with 143bhp and 206Nm of torque. The manual gearbox edition achieves 0-60mph in just under 7.8 seconds, (eight seconds with the robotised sequential transmission), and the 595 will move at speeds of up to 130mph, given the opportunity. Your Abarth will give you a respectable 47.1mpg with a manual gearbox, (48.7 for robotised), and complies with Euro 6 emissions standards at 139g/km (134g/km for robotised).
The Uconnect infotainment system is controlled via a five-inch touchscreen panel, which can also be operated through voice commands. Use it to stream music from your smartphone, or to access your favourite social media sites. Safety features include ABS, ESC and a full set of airbags to keep you and your passengers protected.
