The new face lifted Abarth has been priced in the UK from £15,090.
Three versions are available at launch, the 595, 595 Competizione and 595 Turismo. The latter being more of a GT, as opposed to a stripped out racer.
Power takes a hike as you go up in price and spec. Standard HP is 145, the Turismo gets bumped up to 165, whilst the Competizione gets a huge 180 HP thanks to a garrett turbine.
a 5 speed manual is standard, but if you have big bucks you can opt for the Abarth sequential box.
You also get a mechanical diff with the Competizione spec.
The exterior benefits the most however. A new front bumper enlarges the air intake enabling an extra 18% in cooling capacity.
At the back the Abarth gets a new rear bumper with a beefier diffuser. Bumper inserts also change with the spec, going from matte black to colour coded and then Anthracite grey.
New 17″ alloys that are standard on the Turismo are now 7% lighter and give up to 50% more ventilation to the brakes underneath.
There will be a massive choice of 15 body colours available, including Circuit Grey, Modena Yellow and a new Abarth Red pastel. You can also opt for some new two tone colour combos with Scorpione Black/Podio Blue and Scorpione Black/Record Grey and Circuit Grey/Abarth Red.
Inside the Abarth receives Alcantara and carbon fibre as well as a newly designed flat bottom steering wheel.
A new Uconnect 5″ screen has Abarth Telemetry built in which logs driving performance on the pre loaded circuits, a 7 speaker BeatsAudio system finishes off the refresh.
