This month, Australians will see the new Abarth 595 enter the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Australia fleet.
Priced from just $27,500 plus on-road costs, the Abarth 595 is set to be the cheapest Abarth ever to be sold in Australia.
The 595, produces 104kW from its 1.4 litre T-Jet turbo-petrol engine and will be available with five-speed manual or single-clutch automatic transmissions.
The mini sports car will fill the gap between the Fiat 500 Lounge ($21,000) and the Abarth 595 Turismo ($34,000), giving consumers an attractively priced sporty option.
Available as a hatch or convertible, the standard features of the Abarth 595 include 16-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, 7.0-inch TFT touch screen infotainment system and reversing sensors.
FCA has also hinted of a 180hp version arriving in Australia at some stage, but it’s no secret the manufacturer intends to continue to add to the already extensive range.
