The Abarth 595 is one of a kind. It combines the design expertise of Fiat with the passion and technical know-how of Abarth, packing a 145bhp punch from its 1.4 litre turbocharged engine. The Abarth 595 is dedicated to every driver who has ever had a dream.
The Abarth 595 looks good for a reason. Every detail has been designed for exceptional performance, from the specially designed bumper to the large rear spoiler and twin tailpipe.
The Abarth 500 hasn't just been designed to thrill; it's packed with sophisticated safety features too. A piece of technical wizardry called ESP ensures tyres keep their grip when the going gets tricky, while Hill Holder technology makes hill starts a breeze. A brilliant new feature called Torque Transfer Control (TTC) improves the transfer of torque to the wheels, ensuring impeccable behaviour on bends for a safer, more enjoyable ride. Plus there are the airbags: seven, no less, even including one for the driver's knees.
Inside, the car is pure Abarth style. Wraparound bucket seats with combined head restraints and lateral support provide containment on the sharpest of bends. The sculpted steering wheel and leather gearknob offer anatomical grip and superior comfort. Aluminium and rubber pedals enhance the racing look and feel. And then there's the dash: sporty and seductive, with an array of clever instrumentation, including an analogue pressure gauge for measuring the turbo pressure, and an LED indicator prompting you when it's the perfect moment to change gear.
The Abarth 500 comes optionally with the innovative Blue&Me™ Map system – a beautiful piece of technology that helps you navigate your route, and analyses your driving performance on the way. Thanks to GPS, the portable unit can track your car's location, direct you to your destination, and record a whole host of data about your driving, including lap speed, vehicle speed and gear changes. All of which you can download to save and compare – and help improve your driving.
