The Abarth 595 Competizione range has undergone a raft of changes, with the most noticeable being a power increase from 160 to 180hp.

Combined with maximum torque of 184lbft from 2500rpm, the 595 Competizione completes the 0-62 mph sprint in 6.7 seconds and goes on to 140mph, while offering combined cycle fuel economy figures of 48.7mpg.

Meanwhile, the standard equipment list of the 595 Competizione now includes a Record Monza exhaust system, 17-inch alloy wheels with titanium finish, Brembo brake system, red brake callipers, leather sports steering wheel, Sabelt sports seats, Xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors and aluminium pedals.

On the options list are leather sports seats, electric glass sunroof, an audio system with four speakers and two tweeters and several alloy wheel, body colour and stripe kit choices.

   

The hatchback version of the car is already on sale and orders open later in May for a cabriolet version, both available with either a manual or MTA automatic gearbox. Standard colour for the new line-up, a no-cost option, is Officina red, replacing Campovolo Grey.

The Abarth 595 Competizione costs £19,890 or £21,190 with the MTA gearbox, while the cabriolet is priced at £21,890/£23,190.
