The Abarth 595 Competizione will be sold only in limited numbers.

Fiat announced a long time ago that it will launch the Abarth brand in India. The 595 would be the first product to carry the Scorpion badge in the country.

Power comes from a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol which pumps out a healthy 158 bhp and 210 Nm of torque which can be boosted to 230 Nm by selecting the ‘Sport’ mode. The motor is mated to a 5-speed AMT.

At 3,657 mm in length, 1,627 mm width and 1,485 mm in height, the Abarth 595 is a pocket rocket. Visual enhancements include a prominent Abarth badge upfront (in place of Fiat’s), new bumpers, 17-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli PZero 205/40 tyres and graphite finish for the ORVMs.
