Fiat has unveiled the 2018 Abarth 595, promising to turn up the heat on the fiesty pocket-rocket.

Based on the pint-sized Fiat 500, the Italian carmaker's Abarth performance arm has added some sizzle to the little city cars.

Available in two body styles, hatch and convertible, the Abarth is also available in two specification levels; standard 595 guise and the more race-bred 595 Competizione.

The base 595 is priced from $26,990 before on-road costs and comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, flourishes of chrome on the exterior and touches of matte black on the front dam and rear bumper. LED daytime running lights and a dual tip chrome exhaust complete the exterior highlights.

Inside, the 595 scores the brand's updated Uconnect infotainment system which is accessed through a 5.0-inch touchscreen as well as Bluetooth, navigation and DAB+ digital radio. A 440-watt Beats Audio system is also present with seven speakers and an eight channel digital amplifier.

The Abarth 595 Competizione is priced from $31,990 and comes with a range of race-focused upgrades including four-piston front Brembo brakes with red calipers, Koni shock absorbers, dual-mode quad-tip exhaust and a carbon fibre and Alcantara steering wheel.

Cosmetically, the Competizione scores 17-inch alloy wheels, grey exterior mirrors, door handles, front dam and rear bumper insert and 'Abarth' side stickers.

Both are powered by the same 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 107kW in the 595 and 132kW in the Competizione.

The 2018 Fiat Abarth 595 is available for order from this month.
