CHANGES FOR 2018 CARS
« on: January 07, 2018, 11:40:58 AM »
Can't find anything on this elsewhere but anyone know if there are any changes to the 595 range for 2018?

Hope to take the plunge soon.

Cheers
Martin

Only change I'm aware of (I think there are some upgraded touch screens, not sure though) is that the driving position is meant to be better because the wheel adjusts.

I'd love that, but it's not the end of the world to not have it.

The 500 is now 11 years old so a complete overhaul must be due, although any development is being kept very quiet. Itís currently special edition after special edition... Iím hoping for brilliant packaging, keeping the pretty looks and bursting with technology. And resist the way of the mini by adding inches and pounds all over. Back to the question, is not expect much change this year; Abarth tend to follow some time after Fiat. Others on here closer to Abarth UK may know more... A

The rumour machine is completely devoid of any news of any new Fiat model at all in 2018........... my guess (and it is a pure guess) is that we will see a Europeanised version of the Argo as a Punto replacement next.

It's Fiat... they rarely reveal too much compared to other manufacturers lol.

I'd love an Abarth Tipo, but it won't happen.
