As the top-spec Abarth 595, the Competizione is kitted out with all of the luxurious features you want in a sporty city car. It’s fast too, thanks to its punchy engine, so you can make the most of zipping about in it every day.
Based on the shape of the Fiat 500, it has quirky, stylish looks and a petite size that’s ideal for getting about the city. With its rear diffuser, dual chrome-plated tailpipes and a low front bumper that’s home to a wide honeycomb grille, it has an assertive, bold guise.
Extra sporty highlights include Xenon headlights, dark tinted windows, red bremo brake callipers and 17-inch Corsa alloy wheels which give it a classier look.
The car feels ultra-athletic inside thanks to the Sabelt sports seats that keep you comfortably in place while you zip around corners. Details like carbon-fibre inserts in the steering wheel and steel pedals give it a premium feel, and you’ll enjoy the cutting-edge look of the seven-inch TFT instrument cluster. Automatic dual-zone climate control makes sure you’re always at the perfect temperature and the automatic electrochromic mirror prevents you from getting dazzled by headlights behind.
The four-cylinder turbocharged T-Jet engine boasts 180bhp and 250Nm of torque at 3,000rpm.
It will take you from 0-60mph in less than seven seconds, and reaches a top speed of 140mph, which you can enjoy when you visit the race track.
The lowered sports suspension makes it more dynamic, while the Koni FSD shock absorbers give a smoother drive over bumps in the road.
As standard, you get to enjoy a high-tech on-road experience thanks to the Uconnect™ entertainment system. It will play a whole host of music from a variety of systems including a DAB digital radio, USB and AUX-IN ports. Bluetooth connectivity is also included so you can take calls on the move. All of this is literally at your fingertips – it’s controlled through a five-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dashboard. Rear parking sensors are also included so you can quickly park up without scraping the paintwork.
To help keep you safe, the 595 Competizione has an Electronic Stability Programme and an Anti-Slip Regulator that helps you hold a surefooted drive even when you reach faster speeds. Fitted with a tough braking system, you can keep the drive controlled while curving around tight bends.
