Fiat brings in the reincarnation of the glamorous Fiat 500 into essence of Abarth 595 which will be out by early January, 2015. Instead of the prior committed Abarth Punto and Avventura, the decision-making body of Fiat surprised the majority by inserting Fiat Abarth 595’s launching by early next year. It’s a good surprise though, since the modified image of the 50-year old Fiat 500 is much awaited by Fiat automobile enthusiasts. On the other hand, Abarth Punto and Avventura are scheduled to zoom their way at the second semester of 2015.
What do we expect with Fiat Abarth 595? Firstly, the fresh brand is boosted by an engine of 1.4L MultiAir turbo- petrol that gives off progressing power productivity of 158bph at 5500rpm and 201Nm at 2750rpm torque under the ‘normal mode’ escapade. Tests putting Abarth 595 in ‘sports mode,’ however, exhibits 230Nm torque. For safety, the engine itself is partnered with an automated manual transmission box (AMT) that also enables a manual override scheme.
Abarth 595’s aesthetics boosts confidence with its distinctive, rounded appeal that screams more of the cuteness than the typical sleek image of most cars. It flaunts 17 inch low seat, alloy wheels with striking red brake calipers. This cabriolet (two-seater car) kicks guts with its rounded center console and red, black and white motifs. Safety package includes features like anti-Lock Braking system, 7 airbags, electronic stability program (ESP) and torque transfer control system.
Unfortunately, Fiat Abarth 595 falls under the “Limited Edition” category among Fiat models. It is especially manufactured as a celebration highlight of the original’s golden years. Price for Abarth 595 starts at Rs. 26 lakhs to 30 lakhs (estimated USD 4,150 to 4,788).
