Abarth 595 Gets Facelift
|   Thursday, June 23, 2016
After recent changes that we could see on the Fiat 500, it is time that people from Abarth prepare a few surprises for the little sporty 595 too. So, the 595 was revised from an aesthetic point of view, but also technologically. In general, the facelift with which the Abarth 595 is presented respects the same novelties that have been observed last fall on the Fiat 500.

Regarding the 595 Abarth's appearance, it has undergone small changes by providing a new front spoiler with large air intakes, and LED daytime lights.
The new amendments brought by Italian engineers bring with them a level of engine cooling better by up to 18 percent.
And the back is discretely changed too. The air diffuser placed at the bottom of the bar has a more pronounced form. Items placed on the front or rear bars will be from now on color customized, depending on the chosen 595 version.

For this purpose, they will be painted in matt black for the base 595 model, in its basic bodywork color for 595 Turismo and a light gray on the 595 Competizione.

17-inch alloy wheels Granturismo (standard on the 595 Turismo) are lighter by 7 percent compared to the old generation, and offer 50 percent more ventilation surface, for cooling the brake system, while the optical blocks take the novelties announced on the Fiat 500.

Customers can now choose from 15 shades of paint for the bodywork, among which are the famous Modena Yellow, Red Abarth, and Iridato White. Available in the configurator will be bi-color combinations Scorpione Black / Podio, Blue, Scorpione Black / Record Grey and Pista Grey / Abarth Red too. The various elements of aesthetic customization, from side stickers, up to exterior mirror caps in various textures of color can also be found.

As for the interior space, the Italians propose several new models of upholstery, and a new steering wheel. Alcantara leather and carbon fiber are found in abundance. Regarding the technological part, the new Abarth 595 is equipped with a latest generation Uconnect multimedia system, which is available in sizes of five and seven inches. To the top version Competizione, Italian engineers propose equipping the model with some sports seats from Sabelt.

On audio level, there have been some changes for the Abarth 595 facelift. So, it now benefits from the contribution of a Beats Audio sound system with seven speakers, a subwoofer and 480 watts.

Regarding the technical side of the new 595 Abarth, the Italians propose a MultiAir motorization unit with a displacement of 1.4 liters, capable of developing 145 horsepower (206 Nm of torque). There is an intermediate version, 595 Turismo, which will come with a unit that can deliver 165 horsepower (230 Nm of torque).

For those who want more, the top version Competizione will get 180 horsepower and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h is possible in just 6.7 seconds. Regarding transmission, customers can choose between a manual transmission or an automatic one with five reports.
Abarth 595 Competizione comes with a limited slip differential, Abarth D.A.M. and sports suspension Koni FSD.
