The Abarth 595 is the perfect starting point for those wanting to enter the Abarth world. With a 1.4 litre Turbo T-Jet 145hp engine, with Tourque Transfer Control and Sport Mode as standard, it is definitely time to start having some fun. The difference between the previous and the new Abarth 595 are in the minor details. The sum of these details is the new satin chrome trim, 10 different body colours and a racing TFT display.
The Abarth engine sound is pure enjoyment coupled with the dual exhaust in satin steel which only enhances the sound further. The noise generated is unique to Abarth and is at full effect when the car is at full throttle. A quite unbelievable sound. On the new Abarth 5956, every detail was designed based on performance. New lateral air intakes on the rear bumper bring increased airflow to the engine and intercooler; the front bumper, side skirts, spoiler and the rear diffuser all contribute in helping the car stick to the road.
With the new Abarth 595 there is more consistency stable performance, thanks largely to the redesigned front and enlarged air intakes which allow for even greater engine cooling. The new rear diffuser is available in three different colour packs; white, red and black. The leather steering wheel, body coloured dashboard with new satin chrome trim and Abarth sport seats all highlight the performance of the new Abarth 595.
The new model also has a sportier looking cockpit. The new flat-bottom steering wheel with race-derived detailing makes you feel like a true racing driver, customise the driving feel of the 595 with the Sports button; altering the maximum torque output, steering calibration and adjusting the accelerator pedal.
