Abarth 595 Review
Abarth 595 Overview
The latest Abarth 595 promises new chrome finishes and a signature Italian driving experience.
The Italian carmaker launched in the Philippines back in 2018, and while generally more known for their work on race cars, have recently begun offering models perfect for city driving. The Abarth 595 is a hatchback that shares a distinct similarity to the Fiat 500--only with a more aggressive touch. According to the company, the 595 is an excellent starting model for those who want to get acquainted with the world of Abarth.
While it has numerous spin-offs, courtesy of their various partnerships with the likes of Monster, this latest redesign promises a playful driving experience. Drivers can expect a myriad of new features such as a 1.4 Turbo T-Jet with 145 hp, Torque Transfer Control, standard Sport mode, and satin chrome finishes.
Abarth 595 Interior
There’s a certain quirkiness about the 595 and it reflects in its interior cabin. Depending on which exterior color you choose, the interior dashboard’s plastic trim is designed to match it which also sports the “500” logo-- a homage to Abarth’s early days. However, for those who aren’t too fond of plastic finishes, they might not appreciate the 595’s interior finishes. While there are some leather touches here and there, plastic is the dominant material here. The button layout for the infotainment system and climate control are evenly spaced out, and while gear shift may appear oddly positioned at first, it actually allows for a more comfortable driving experience when switching gears.
The small 5-inch touchscreen interface includes both Bluetooth and USB playback, but no Apple Carplay or Android Auto. For charging and connectivity, there’s a single USB port and a 12V socket. However, its main features would have to be its six loudspeakers.
Abarth 595 Exterior
Abarth 595 dimensions are somewhat similar to the Fiat 500, the only difference being its penchant for larger, eye-catching features. With its big wheels, diffusers, and red stripes. While Abarth could definitely have done better than halogen lights for their headlights, they were able to make it up with HIDs and a lighting signature in the front when switched on. In contrast, the rear end sports small LED lights. However, the highlight is definitely its chrome finishes which are particularly distinct on the twin exhaust pipes beneath the rear diffuser. The car maker’s signature scorpion emblem can also be found displayed on a tiny portion of the car.
Abarth 595 Ride & Handling
The 595 features a Mac-Pherson suspension with an anti-roll-bar for the front and a Torsion beam with anti-roll-bar for the rear, as well as a lowered sports suspension. Because of its five-speed manual gearbox, the vehicle will have three pedals. However, its small size and the tall seat can make it a bit tricky to get into a comfortable driving position. While there is a steering wheel control feature, it is still limited to just tilting. The assisted steering wheel feature does, however, work with perfect accuracy. Acceleration isn’t as impressive as other mid hatchbacks in the market, but it makes up for it with its excellent momentum and precision. The raspy roar of the 1.4 turbocharged 4-cylinder engine also makes it an exciting vehicle to drive. The 595 also includes a telescopic shock absorber with Frequency Selective Damping Valve, making for a smooth driving experience even on relatively rough terrain.
Abarth 595 Engine & Fuel Consumption
The 595’s 1.4 Turbo T-Jet engine can reach a maximum speed of 210 kmph. It can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in 7.8 seconds with the manual gearbox, and 8.0 seconds with the robotized sequential gearbox. Max power output is at 145 hp at 5,500 rpm, while max torque can reach 206 Nm at 3,000 rpm when in Sport Mode.
Fuel economy is relatively decent, with the 595 able to maintain a steady 10-20 km/l when driving at 100-120 km/h. While the hatchback segment is still a relatively small market in the country, rival models are most likely to be Japanese coups or entry-level American models. These vehicles typically highlight high horsepower, but they definitely don’t have the Italian personality of the 595. Despite its size, a dual exhaust in chrome steel enhances the signature Abarth roar when at full throttle.
Abarth 595 Braking & Safety
The 595 is equipped with standard ABS and electronic brakeforce distribution, as well as six airbags. It also includes traction control, speed-sensing door locks, an immobilizer, and ISOFIX mounting points.
Abarth 595 Verdict
Priced at P2,690,000 (base trim), the Abarth 595 is definitely a piece of Italian car history. For the price, there are definitely more hatchbacks that offer a plethora of features and even cargo space for less. However, the 595’s smooth ride and handling is definitely its key selling point. For those who are looking for the Italian car driving experience, the 595 might just be worth the buy.
