The Abarth 595 is a performance model based on the Fiat 500 city car. It is available in either hatchback or cabriolet (Abarth 595C) body styles. The current model dates back to 2007, although it was given a substantial update in 2015.

The current Fiat 500 will cease production in 2021 as it is replaced by an all-new model. The next-generation version will only be available as an electric vehicle, which means that the current Abarth 595 (and 695) will be the last of their kind. There has been no announcement of an Abarth version of the next Fiat 500.

There are various versions of the Abarth 595, as well as several limited-edition models over its lifetime. These include the Abarth 595 Turismo, 595 Pista, 595 Competizione and 595 Esseesse. The higher-performance Abarth 695 is not included here, but we hope to build a separate page for that model soon.

The Abarth 595 is very much a car that you would buy with your heart rather than your head, and its relatively poor overall Expert Rating reflects its obvious shortcomings as a practical vehicle and relatively high price tag. Despite that, the 595 has received much praise for being great fun to drive.
