The Abarth 595 is undoubtedly stylish, and the top models are startlingly quick but there are plenty of small hot hatches that are both cheaper and better to driveget the best price
The trimSee full equipment
Even the entry-level 595 is reasonably well equipped, coming with 16in alloy wheels, air-con, a DAB radio, Bluetooth and a multi-function steering wheel as standard.
The engineSee full engine specs
The entry-level 595 uses a turbocharged 1.4-litre T-Jet engine that produces a lukewarm 143bhp and 152lb ft of torque. Consequently, don’t expect hot hatch levels of performance.

The Up GTI is the best budget hot hatch you can buy
The Suzuki Swift Sport is well equipped and fun to drive, but...
Perky performance and nicely balanced handling
