2022 Abarth 595 4

Abarth reveals a revised lineup for 2022.

Fiat’s performance sub-brand, Abarth, has unveiled its updated 2022 lineup. Since the Mazda MX-5-derived Abarth 124 Spider went off sale in 2019, the Abarth range has consisted of the Fiat 500-based 595 and 695, so this new update represents the entirety of the Abarth range.

The entry-level 595 can be optioned as a more style-focused Turismo, or F595 – which adds a few performance tweaks. The range-topping 695 is also available with the Turismo package or the even sportier Competizione.

Abarth has retained its turbocharged 122kW 1.4 four-cylinder, so 0-100km/h stands at 7.3 seconds with the manual transmission or 7.4 seconds for the five-speed sequential automatic. Both will reach a 220km/h top speed.

The Abarth 595 comes as standard with 16-inch wheels, a double chrome exhaust, stainless-steel pedals, flat-bottom steering wheel and Koni rear suspension.

Upgrade to the F595 and you’ll get a titanium Monza Sovrapposto exhaust system with vertically stacked quad pipes, automatic climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels and a special F595 badge paying homage to Formula 4 – where Abarth supplies its engines.

The more potent 695 comes with the same powertrain as the 595 but tuned to 132kW and 250Nm of torque, resulting in a 0-100km/h time of 6.7 seconds and a 230km/h top speed. It goes further with Koni FSD shock absorbers all around and beefier front four-piston Brembo calipers with 305mm front discs. In Competizione form, you’ll get Sabelt seats with red stitching and a carbon shell, and the choice of a mechanical limited slip differential or the robotised sequential gearbox with steering wheel paddles.

An option exclusive to the 695 is the ‘Racing Style Pack’ which adds a 12-way adjustable rear spoiler to improve aerodynamic load by up to 42 kilograms at 200km/h.
