Abarth 595 review - how does it compare to the Up GTI? - MPG and running costs

Low on sophistication, high on fun – Abarth’s hatch isn’t for everyone, but some will love it.

MPG and running costs

No Abarth 595 or 695 is obscenely thirsty or polluting, but with a focus on performance there are certainly more frugal options out there. Combined fuel consumption ranges between 42.8mpg for the 595 and 41.5mpg for the Competizione, while CO2 output covers a small scale from 151g/km to 155g/km. Figures in the 40s seem realistic in normal use.

Fiat and Abarth’s warranty isn’t overly generous, covering parts and labour for two years, though an extra 12-month retailer warranty sits on top of that. Paint defects are warranted for 36 months and corrosion for eight years, though the latter isn’t as much an issue with Fiats as it used to be! Abarth also offers various service packages like most manufacturers, to make things easier over the first few years of ownership.
