Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India today unveiled its much awaited iconic Italian brand, Fiat Abarth 595 Competizione, at the Buddh International Circuit in New Delhi with prices starting at Rs 29.85 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

 

FCA India also showcased the all new Punto Abarth which has a 1.4-litre four-cylinder turbocharged T-Jet engine, making it the hottest hatch in the country.

 

Speaking on the launch, Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India Automobiles Pvt. Ltd. said, “We are extremely pleased to introduce the iconic Italian brand - Abarth from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ stable to our customers in India. The flagship model Abarth 595 Competizione, a sports performance coupe, is renowned world over for its sheer performance, iconic style and rich heritage. With this launch, we are hoping to bring this same legacy to our Indian customers and are confident that Abarth would provide a superior driving experience.”

 

He further added, “Additionally we will also bring in another performance oriented hatchback in the Abarth range by introducing India’s first hot hatch Punto Abarth which is locally made. India is a strategic market for us and this is an integral part of our commitment to widen our portfolio and to provide greater value not only to our customers but other stakeholders as well.”

 

The Abarth 595 Competizione is a 3-door hatchback powered with a 1.4-loitre T-Jet engine producing 160 PS of power, taking the car from 0 to 100 kmph in just 7.6 seconds which makes it fast and fun to drive. The maximum torque generated is 230 Nm between 2750-3000 rpm with the top speed estimated to be around 210 kmph. Low ground clearance provides good traction and control for manoeuvring at high speeds with confident driving. The Abarth 595 Competizione features large 17-inch alloy wheels to ensure it remains gripped to the road and cut corners with ease.

 

The exterior designing is inspired from the Fiat 500 Cinquecento. The exterior body is made up of steel and it is a forward wheel drive car. The Abarth 595 Competizione comes with perforated and ventilated brake discs which results in confidence inspiring braking. The Abarth 595 Competizione also comes equipped with an impressive infotainment system, Xenon headlamps, rear parking sensors and Monza exhaust systems.

 

The interior of the car is refreshingly different with a mix of the retro and the modern. The steering wheel is small, leather wrapped with multifunction buttons cladded on it making it practical and user friendly. The bright round dials behind the steering favours sportiness and aggressiveness without compromise. The Abarth 595 launched in India comprises AMT transmission with paddle shifts mounted on the steering wheel. It features well contoured hand stitched leather seats, promising comfort and agility at high speeds. Equipped with two driving modes, normal and sport, the car delivers an enhanced driving experience.

 

The Abarth 595 Competizione will be available in four colours - Iridato White, Scorpione Black, Cordolo Red and Campovolo Grey. The company in its inaugural year will be introducing the 595 Competizione through the CBU route and will be available at select Fiat dealers in five Indian cities namely New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and Bengaluru.
