Fiat’s Abarth 595 Competizione is among the fastest hot hatchbacks presently offered in India. This has actually been possible due to the 1.4 litre turbocharged T-Jet engine tuned by Abarth to push out a remarkable 160 horsepower and 230 Nm of torque. Now that might not sound like a lot by itself, however it is really a lot of power for a car of this size. Exactly what this power translates in terms of speed is a 0-100 km/h time of 7.4 seconds and a leading speed of 209 km/h.
Priced at Rs 29.85 lakh ($44,532) the Fiat’s primary rival is the similarity Mini which, despite providing a lot more high-end inside the cabin, does not pair up to the sheer driving experience that the 595 needs to offer. Lets hope for a complete evaluation.
