Fiat’s performance sub-brand, Abarth, has expanded the 595 range with the addition of the 595 Pista. Equipped with a new Garrett turbocharger, the 1.4-liter four-cylinder now generates peak power of 167ps.
The oversized Garrett turbocharger, with geometric compression ratio reduced from 9.8:1 to 9:1, optimizes temperature in the combustion chamber at equal pressure. This allows peak torque of 230Nm to be achieved at just 2,250rpm.
The 595 Pista also features a ‘Sport’ button, which adjusts peak torque output, power steering settings and the throttle response. The braking system is also enhanced with ventilated 284mm discs on the front and 240mm discs on the rear.
