Fiat Chrysler Australia has announced the arrival of two fresh new additions to the Abarth line-up.

Coinciding with a refresh of the entire Abarth range, the 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione are being offered in both hatch and convertible configurations.

Both new offerings feature the same 1.4-litre T-Jet turbo engine that generates 118kW and 230Nm, with the changes between the models limited to cosmetic details – particularly paint colour selections.

Beyond that, the 595 Turismo boasts leather seats, 10-spoke 17-inch alloys, cross drilled and self-ventilating front brake discs and Koni front suspension. While the more race-tuned 595 Competizione features fabric bucket seats and also a dual-mode ‘Record Monza’ exhaust.

Across the Abarth range a new seven-inch digital instrument display is also being introduced.

Fiat Chrysler Australia President and CEO, Veronica Johns says the changes and new variants will strengthen the Abarth line-up.

“The evolution of Abarth continues with two thrill-a-minute editions guaranteed to put a smile on owner’s faces.  The 595 Competizione and Turismo are the most exhilarating Abarth models to date, offering all the fun, style and excitement you’d expect from a pure Italian hot hatch.”
