The 595 also gets a revised exterior with a larger front end to channel more air into the intake and increase cooling capacity by as much as 18 per cent, while the rear gains a more pronounced diffuser.
A total of 15 different body colours are available for buyers to choose from, and Abarth also offers three optional packs to further customise the exterior with side stickers and contrasting mirror caps.
One of the biggest innovations is the increased power of the 1.4 T-jet engine installed on the 595 and 595 Turismo versions. The first delivers 145 HP and 206 Nm of peak torque, while the second reaches 165 HP and 230 Nm. The latter is fitted with a Garrett turbine. On the other hand, the 595 Competizione with its 180 HP is the car for drivers who crave racing adrenaline in terms of both performance and technical features.
Accelerating from 0-62 mph in 6.7 seconds and then braking safely with the oversize Brembo braking system with four-piston fixed aluminium callipers will be a pleasure in the anatomical “Abarth Corsa by Sabelt” shell seats. The new Abarth 595 is also the only car in its segment to fit a truly exclusive mechanical limited-slip differential, for outstanding performance.
Abarth offers Beats audio system for customers who opt for it. The steering wheel in the latest model is flat bottomed and the dashboard features a trim to match the overall color tone used in the interiors. The next gen version of the Abarth 595 is all set to go on sale in June 2016. The launch takes place in Europe and more regions will be covered later.
