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