The Abarth 595 wins the “Auto Motor und Sport” magazine “Best Cars” competition for the 6th time in a row


For the 6th time in a row, the Abarth 595/695 model range has been awarded the title of "Best Car" in the Mini Cars/Import category. With 25.6% of the votes, Abarth 595/695 won ahead of twelve other competitors. 

In the overall category rankings, which also included German brands, the model took second place.

For the 45th time, the “Best Cars” competition asked readers of "Auto Motor und Sport" to indicate their favorite cars from those on the German market. More than 101,000 readers cast their votes, choosing from 387 models currently on the market, divided into 11 categories, each with a special classification for imported cars.

Since 1949, Abarth has been synonymous with high-performance vehicles that offer driving pleasure to a wide range of customers. The spirit of the Abarth 595 and Abarth 695 has won the hearts of thousands of car enthusiasts around the world. The victory in the “Best Cars 2021” competition serves as further confirmation of the international success of these small sports cars, and of the passion for the Scorpion brand in the German market.

The recently refreshed Abarth range consists of 4 versions – 595, Turismo, Competizione and Essesse, which offer new colors, fine materials, new style details, advanced technology and great customization, to underline the two souls of the Abarth brand: performance and style. All the versions are united by specific characteristics that underline their sporty disposition and contribute to the improvement of performance. They are also fitted with the same engine, the powerful 1.4 T-Jet with levels of output varying from 145 to 180 hp, all Euro 6D Final-compliant, the same one on which the Italian and German Formula 4 cars are based.

In detail, the range goes from the Abarth 595 version (145 hp), the gateway to the Abarth world, to the Abarth 595 Turismo (165 hp), featuring an exclusive trim level with new leather seats that are also available in the new Helmet Brown color. It continues with the Abarth 595 Competizione (180 hp), with a distinctly sporty configuration enhanced by new 17” alloy wheels, and the new Rally Blue body, a matt color inspired by the Fiat 131 Abarth Rally of the 1970s, moving onto the Abarth 595 Essesse (180 hp), the uncompromising model. All variants of the car are available in hatchback and convertible versions, the latter with an electric hood. is an award-winning Digital Media, Marketing, and Advertising Company est. 2015, is a Member of the Independent Media Association of South Africa (IMASA), and Brand South Africa's Play Your Part Ambassadors, with a global reach of over 10 million
