Review

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 drive

get the best price

Turismo models get more power than the standard car, better rear dampers, upgraded brakes, different wheels, rear parking sensors, climate control, leather seats and tinted rear windows. It’s well worth considering if you want more pace and luxury.

Above the 595 sits the Turismo model, which produces 163bhp and 170lb ft. We have yet to try this engine, but we suspect it should be usefully more rapid than the standard car.
