Abarth 595 hatchback (2016 - )

This is a little car with a lot of character. The Abarth 595 is definitely not without its flaws – pricey, short on safety kit, hard ride – but it delivers a raucously fun driving experience. While most city cars opt for comfort and economy, the Abarth 595 is a very nippy car which keeps its retro, stylish looks, but adds a big dose of aggression.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Inside, things aren’t quite as inspiring and stylish as on the outside. There are a lot of hard, plasticky fittings and panels all about the cabin. And it’s all very grey. That's weird, because base-level Fiat 500s are really stylish and colourful. One nice highlight is the boost gauge mounted on the dashboard, which adds to the drama.

You get supportive and sporty bucket seats, although the padding is rather firm; lovers of a hard mattress will rejoice, but those who prefer things softer probably won't. The high driving position won't be to everyone's taste, either, and because there’s no reach adjustment on the steering wheel, it could be tricky to find yourself a comfortable driving position.

The small touch-screen isn’t very easy to use. It’s basic, but it's also quite fiddly, and it often takes a long time to scroll through to the menu or feature that you're after. The fact there's no sat-nav, even on the options list (apart from on the odd limited-edition model), is frustrating.

When you’re on the road, you’ll need to turn the radio up loud to drown out the amount of road noise you get in the cabin, too.
