Which used Abarth 595 hatchback should I buy?
The Abarth 500 has been around a while now, with plenty of improvements made throughout its life. For this reason, we’d suggest going for the newer 595 Competitzione with the 178bhp engine. It’s just as economical as the lower powered 1.4-litre engine and, once you’re past the small amount of turbo lag it does suffer from at low revs, it’s noticeably quicker.
The Competizione also comes with a number of upgrades to the chassis and brakes that improve the way the 500 drives. You also get a lot more equipment for your money, which is always a nice bonus.
