• Overhauled range brings new models
• New 595 available in hatchback and convertible forms
• Standard Abarth 500 price reduced
Abarth has updated its model line-up, with the introduction of two new editions.
Called the Abarth 595 Turismo and the Abarth 595 Competizione in honour of the original Abarth 595 SS of 1964, the models feature power increases, chassis upgrades, two levels of improved seats, special wheels and extras off the 500’s options list.
The 500 will remain as an entry-level Abarth product, but the company hopes the 595s will persuade more customers to buy into the brand.
Prices for the diminutive warm hatch will now start from £13,975, rising to a moderately eye-watering £21,925.
