Abarth Streamlines Range

Abarth Streamlines Range

Abarth has streamlined its range to just two main models, with optional ‘packs’ available for each. The entry-level 595 (145bhp) has been dropped, as have all Esseesse versions. The new base 595 now comes with 165hp as standard (135mph and 0-62mph in 7.3sec), while the Abarth 695 has 180hp (140mph and 6.7 seconds). Starting from these base models, the customer can then add special packs.

The 595 comes as standard with 16-inch alloys, chromed dual exhaust, front fog lights, body-colour mirrors, grey dashboard, black fabric seats, stainless steel pedals, flat-bottomed steering wheel, Koni rear suspension and 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.

Optional packs consist of the style-orientated ‘595 Turismo’ or performance-themed ‘F595’. The former adds satin chrome mirror caps, 17-inch alloys and leather seats, while the F595 has a Record Monza Sovrapposto exhaust with stacked quad tailpipes, Koni front suspension, matt black dashboard and 17-inch alloys.

The Abarth 695 comes with Sabelt front seats, 17-inch alloys, Record Monza exhaust, Koni FSD dampers all round, red Brembo front callipers, big 305mm front discs, specific grey mirrors/dashboard, Alcantara/carbonfibre steering wheel and aluminium gearknob.

The 695 can be customised with either ‘695 Turismo’ or ‘695 Competizione’ packs. The Turismo pack adds leather seats, Alcantara dash, unique alloy wheels and a sliding glass roof. The Competizione adds a Sovrapposto exhaust, carbon shell seats and a choice of either mechanical self-locking differential or automated gearbox.

In addition, seven further option groups are offered, six available on both models and the seventh – the Racing Style Pack – exclusive to the 695. The latter includes a 12-postion variable rear spoiler.
