This week Fiat has revealed two additional 500 Abarth models will be available in the United Kingdom. Known as the 595 Turismo and the 595 Competizione, both models are better-equipped and more powerful than the standard 500 Abarth.
Both models are powered by the same 1.4-liter T-Jet engine found under the hood of the standard model, but in this case the power unit produces 160 hp (119 kW / 162 PS) so it offers the same level of performance as in the 500 Essesse. The standard 500 Abarth will be considered from now on as the entry-level model, and has received a 500 pounds discount. Fiat announced that the regular 500 Abarth will be offered with the Essesse tuning package.
All three models are available with a either a manual or a robotized manual gearbox. The 595 Turismo and the 595 Competizione are offered in hatchback or convertible body styles. The first one starts from 17,775 pounds and comes with climate control, leather trim and uprated dampers. As for the Competizione model, it has a base price of 18,795 pounds and features a sports exhaust system and fabric Sabelt seats.
