- A wide range of available kit
- Two bodystyles to choose from
- Various colour combinations available
- Simple engine line-up

Engines and Driving Experience
Abarth models are known for their exciting driving dynamics and the 595 fits the bill. Features such as Torque Transfer Control and 'Scorpion mode' enhance the driving experience even further whilst the exhaust delivers a pleasant note that's sure to put a smile on the face of the driver.
The 595 comes with a 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine with either 143, 163 or 178bhp, allowing the car to go from 0 to 62mph in as little as 7.8, 7.3 and 6.7 seconds respectively. If you're after maximum performance, higher specifications also receive a mechanical self-locking differential to provide maximum traction, as well as Koni shock absorbers.
Away from sporty performance figures, the 595 achieves respectable fuel economy figures. You can expect around 35mpg combined, which is decent for a car of this nature.
Practicality and Running Costs
As you'd expect from a small city car, practicality isn't the Abarth's strongest suit. You will get 185 litres of boot space, which is enough for a few bags of shopping. Dropping the rear seats increases overall capacity to 550 litres if you need the extra space.
Climbing into the rear of the 595 is trickier than rivals, as it only comes exclusively with 3 doors. The interior may also feel a little cramped for taller occupants, especially when sat in the rear. You'll be able to choose from two bodystyles, however. The hatchback version is good fun, but it's the cabriolet that will put the biggest grin on your face during summer.
Due to its performance, the 595 can be more expensive to run than some rivals. Insurance starts at group 25 (out of 50) and rises up to 34 if opting for the more powerful variants. All Evans Halshaw dealerships are well-equipped to deal with any maintenance or servicing requirements.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Inside the cabin, you'll be greeted by sporty Abarth seats that provide plenty of adjustment and support. The dashboard is well laid out and comes with a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system and a turbo boost gauge.
Other features such as a leather steering wheel and colour coded dashboard trims enhance the interior further. LED daytime running lights, smartphone mirroring and handsfree Bluetooth come as standard, but opting for a higher specification may see you unlock further benefits such as sat nav and a BeatsAudio system.
A variety of safety equipment can also be found within the Abarth 595, such as:
- Parking sensors
- Hill hold assist
- Seven airbags around the cabin
- Electronic stability control
Is the Abarth 595 right for me?
The Abarth 595 is a great choice for those who want a sporty city car thanks to its fashionable aesthetics, impressive performance and raspy exhaust.
The previously mentioned Fiat 500 is an obvious contender if you like the look of the Abarth 595 but want something less expensive to run. Another alternative is the Volkswagen up! GTI, which is another sporty city car. If you need extra room but don't want to compromise on performance, the MINI Cooper S and Ford Fiesta ST are great options.
