The prices of the new Abarth 595 have just been announced by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles UK.

Starting at £15,090 OTR for the 1.4 TJet 145hp Manual, the new offering is available as a hatchback or convertible.

The Abarth 595 comes in three trim levels: 595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione, and three power levels. An Abarth mechanical limited-slip differential can be added to the 595 Competizione – designed to improve traction in extreme conditions.

On the outside, the new Abarth 595 now has an oversized air intake and a rear bumper that has been altered to offer a more pronounced diffuser. Specific bumper inserts have also been created for each trim level.

There are new 17’’ Granturismo rims (standard on 595 Turismo) on offer and 15 body colours for customers to choose from. There are also three new two-colour combos: Scorpione Black/Podio Blue and Scorpione Black/Record Grey and Circuit Grey/Abarth Red. An updated upholstery selection has also been added for the entire range.

The new Abarth 595 also features a brand new sports instrument panel. For infotainment, all 595 versions are equipped with Uconnect™ 5-inch DAB digital radio with touchscreen and Uconnect Live services as standard. This will include Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto support. The range also sports a newly refined BeatsAudio™ system with seven speakers.
