Fiat has introduced the 2015 Abarth 595 on the Australian auto market, where the model in question has been priced from 33,500 AUD.

The cheapest version of the 2015 Abarth 595 will be setting you back for at least 33,500 AUD in the Pacific country and for the money you will be getting the hatchback Turismo, while the better equipped Competizione is coming as a hard-top for 36,500 AUD and as a convertible for 39,000 AUD. The pocket rocket is more expensive than models such as the Renault Clio RS200, the Ford Fiesta ST or the Peugeot 208 GTI.

The 2015 Abarth 595 is packing a 1.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is good for 118 kW at 5,500 rpm and 230 Nm of torque, available at 3,000 rpm. This is enough to propel the small vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds when equipped with the 5-speed manual or in 7.6 seconds with the optional Dualogic five-speed automatic transmission. Some of the features found on the 595 Abarth include the 7.0-inch TFT instrument cluster, leather seats on the Turismo, 17-inch 10-spoke wheels with 205/40 tires and ventilated disc brakes, amongst others.
