March 21, 2017 by Perrys Content Team in News

Pricing and specification for the all-new Abarth 595 Trofeo have been announced by Abarth UK, ahead of the stunning new car’s arrival here later this month (March).

Innovative

And with a starting price of £17,290 OTR for the 1.4 TJet 160hp hatchback version, the new 595 Trofeo blends performance and technological innovation with outstanding value for money.

Potent

Based on the 595 Pista shown earlier this month at the Geneva International Motor show, the new 595 Trofeo builds on the UK concept of the 595 Trofeo Edition, launched in summer 2015, and takes it to the next level. The new Trofeo is available in manual hatchback and convertible versions and comes equipped with a potent 160hp 1.4-litre TJet petrol engine complete with Record Monza exhaust.

Colours

The car comes in a choice of five exterior colours – Abarth Red, Gara White, Campovolo Grey, Record Grey or Scorpione Black – with complementing front and rear dam inserts and wing mirrors, in yellow, black or red. The look is completed with17-inch matt black Formula Alloy wheels.

Tech

A key feature of the car is the 7-inch Uconnect  infotainment system with Abarth Telemetry, which allows the owner to load famous European race tracks. Selecting them during track sessions brings up detailed maps and displays real-time tips to improve lap times. The driver can then access their recorded sessions and analyse their performance at any time. More tracks will be added post-launch.

Pricing

Full pricing for the new Abarth 595 Trofeo is as follows:

  • 595 Trofeo 1.4 TJet 160hp hatchback                £17,290
  • 595 Trofeo 1.4 TJet 160hp cabriolet                  £19,290

Exciting

“The new Trofeo is a novel and exciting idea for the 595 range,” says Gerry Southerington, brand manager, Abarth UK. “The extra standard equipment means it’s excellent value for money, while the technology such as the telemetry, makes it an ideal choice for customers who want to test their car’s performance on a racetrack. It’s a winning combination,” added Southerington.
