Revamped Abarth 595 Priced From £15,090 In UK

FCA UK have just released pricing and specs for the new Abarth 595, announcing that £15,090 OTR will get you the entry-level 145 HP T-Jet manual version.

The Abarth 595 is available in three power levels, three trim levels (595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione) and as both a hatchback and a convertible.

In order to get the most out of the 1.4-liter T-Jet engine, customers will have to purchase the 595 Competizione which packs 180 HP to the entry-level model’s 145 HP. Meanwhile, Turismo-spec versions will get the 165 HP output rating.

As standard, all versions of the 1.4-liter T-Jet engine are paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, however, there’s also the option of an Abarth robotized sequential gearbox that comes with paddle shifters.

The entry-level Convertible version will cost UK buyers an extra £2,000 compared to the Hatchback, while Turismo variants cost £18,290 and £20,290 with the same distinction.

Flagship Competizione models are priced at £20,290 and £22,290 for the Hatchback and Convertible respectively. These range-topping models are also available with a mechanical limited slip differential, borrowed from the 695 Biposto.
