In Spain, the Abarth 595/695 was awarded the prestigious title of "Best Cars 2016" thanks to votes from readers of magazines Autopista, Automóvil, Coche Actual and Autovía issued by publishing company Motorpress Ibérica.
The awards ceremony was held at the legendary Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid in the presence of the most important figures of the Spanish automotive industry.
Divided into 11 categories, the contest is considered a benchmark by authorities for everything regarding the image that customers have of automobile manufacturers. And in the "Best City Car 2016" category, the jury awarded the Scorpion's small size car that allows all its customers to experience exhilarating driving.
Available in sedan or convertible, the Abarth 595 range features three trim levels ("Elaborabile," "Turismo," and "Competizione"), three power levels of the 1.4 T-jet engine (140 HP, 160 HP, and 180 HP) and two transmissions (five-speed manual or robotised sequential). The Abarth 695 Biposto, the "smallest supercar," completes the line-up. Delivering 190 HP, the car secures the thrills and technology of a real racing car on everyday roads.
The Spanish award joins the shelf alongside the German trophy recently won by the Abarth 595/695.
