A supercharged hot hatch with delightful looks, the Abart 595C Turismo makes every journey a thrilling one for committed drivers. The experience is enhanced further by an electronically-adjustable roof, which allows you to enjoy the pace and manoeuvrability of the vehicle in the open air.
The 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine of the 595c Turismo supplies 160hp, along with maximum torque of 230Nm at just 3000rpm. Combined fuel consumption of 43mpg and carbon emissions of 155g/km, meanwhile, are impressive for such a powerful car.
The striking, compact looks of the 595c Turismo are emphasised by its two-tone metallic paint scheme, which is available in ten exclusive colours. Buyers are also offered the choice of four different types of 17" alloy wheel, meaning that you can make your model even more distinctive. Xenon headlights round off the assertive appearance.
A high driving position and supportive Sabelt leather bucket seats ensure that the driver is comfortable and poised to get the best of their Turismo. Creative touches, such as the high mounting of the aluminium gear lever or the boost gauge and upshift indicator on top of the dashboard, accentuate the rally-car styling.
The power of the 595c Turismo's engine, when combined with its modest weight of 1085kg, give the car an astonishing turn of pace; it can reach 62mph from a standing start in just 7.4 seconds, and boasts a top speed of 130mph. Although a convertible, the 595c has retained its B-pillars, door frames and rearside windows; the structure of the vehicle is therefore the same as the hatchback model, and the roof has no significant impact on its excellent driving dynamics.
A significant amount of convenience and comfort equipment is standard on the 595c Turismo, including climate control, rear parking sensors, and Bluetooth® connectivity. Selecting "Sport" mode or Torque Transfer Control, meanwhile, give you a degree of control over the distribution of power and the weight of the steering.
Quick-deploying anti-roll bars provide excellent protection to the occupants of the 595c Turismo in the very unlikely event of the car flipping over after an accident. Seven airbags and a host of active safety measures make the Turismo a notably safe car, as well as a quick one.
