Abarth 595 Turismo in Chippenham Wiltshire
The Abarth 595 Turismo has several awesome upgrades over the 595, including a more powerful 165hp engine with a Garret GT 1446 turbo, black leather seats, 17” Gran Turismo alloy wheels, a matte grey interior, chromed exhaust pipes and automatic climate control. It delivers an incredible drive, accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.3 seconds. You can also specify a manual or robotised sequential gearbox with flappy paddles.
Like all 595’s, the Turismo is setup to handle. The front and rear shocks have FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) technology that adjusts the ride to the road and the rear shocks are made by performance company KONI. The Garret GT 1446 turbo delivers strong boost from 3,000rpm and the 595 Turismo loves to rev. As standard, this model has rain and dusk sensors, rear parking sensors and Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.
The 595 Turismo’s 1.4 T-JET engine kicks out 165hp and 230Nm of torque from 3,000rpm, delivering responsive performance in every gear. The 0-62mph time of 7.3 seconds (7.4 seconds in the automatic) is seriously quick.
The 595 Turismo’s dual-tip exhaust produces raucous sound, with a muscular growl and bark under acceleration. It’s tuned to settle down in higher gears so you can cruise around without getting a headache.
Living with It
The 595 Turismo stands out from the base model with upgraded 17” Gran Turismo alloy wheels (exclusive to this model). Not only do they look great, but they are 7% lighter than the 16” alloys on the standard 595.
The 595 Turismo keeps you glued into your seat with high-bolstered, diamond-quilted leather sports seats in black. Optionally at extra cost, you can specify tobacco leather upholstery or heritage brown upholstery.
