Turin-tuned! 2024 Abarth 695 hot hatch pricing rises with small changes for the updated Mini Cooper JCW-rivalling model

Racing Orange joins the five other body colour paints available on the 695 hot hatch.

Stellantis Australia, parent company of Fiat Abarth, has revealed pricing for a lightly updated version of the Abarth 695 hot hatch, featuring minute design tweaks.

Starting from $37,900 before on-road costs when had with a manual gearbox, the updated Abarth 695 is available from November and comes as a single variant - Competizione.

Mechanically, the Abarth 695 remains mostly unchanged with a 132kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine driving the front wheels via either the five-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission, which costs an extra $2000.

The Abarth 695 - essentially the more powerful version of the Fiat 500 - comes with a set of 17-inch ‘Montecarlo’ alloy wheels, Brembo brakes in yellow, Koni suspension, and new to the hot hatch is a pair of vertically stacked exit pipes for the iconic Record Monza exhaust system.

Inside, a pair of 7.0-inch screens for the driver display and multimedia are found on the new matte black dash, while the Alcantara steering wheel and black fabric seats remain.

Exterior colors are available in nine configurations, though all but Gara White cost extra.

An extra $650 is needed for Racing Red, Record Grey, Scorpione Black or the new Racing Orange, while any colour paired with a Scorpione Black roof is an extra $1,600.

The only other option available is a pack that, for $1700, adds a Beats audio system and a set of 17-inch Competizione alloys to replace the Montecarlos.

So far this year - as of the end of September - 595 units of the Abarth along with its Fiat 500 sibling have sold in Australia, both being counted under the same model but the FCAI’s data.

Racing video games, car-spotting on road trips, and helping wash the family VL Calais Turbo as a kid were all early indicators that an interest in cars would stay present in Chris’ life, but loading up his 1990 VW Golf GTI Mk2 and moving from hometown Brisbane to work in automotive publishing in Melbourne ensured cars would be a constant. With a few years as MOTOR Magazine’s first digital journalist under his belt, followed by a stint as a staff journalist for Wheels Magazine, Chris’ career already speaks to a passion for anything with four wheels, especially the 1989 Mazda MX-5 he currently owns. From spending entire weeks dissecting the dynamic abilities of sports cars to weighing up the practical options for car buyers from all walks of life, Chris’ love for writing and talking about cars means if you’ve got a motoring question, he can give you an answer.
