For the seventh consecutive time, the Abarth 595/695 performance models have been named “Best Car” in the Mini Cars/Import category by the German automotive magazine, Auto Motor und Sport. The “Best Car” award winners are chosen by readers of the magazine to indicate their favorite cars on the German market. More than 100,000 readers cast their votes, choosing from 387 different models on sale in Germany, divided into 12 different categories, each with a special classification for imported vehicles.
The performance-bred Abarth 595/695 models took home the title in the Mini Cars/Import category with 26.1% of the vote against 12 competitors. When placed against the German brands and the import competition, it scored second place overall for the Mini Cars category.
Since 1949, the Abarth brand 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 2022 “Best Cars” 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 secret of the success of its cars lies in the two souls of the brand, performance, and style, that also characterize the latest novelties of the brand: the Abarth F595 and the Abarth 695 Esseesse. The first is the special series dedicated to the youngest costumers of the Scorpion brand, who are seeking performance and are fans of technology, and is equipped with the high-performance 1.4-liter Euro 6D-Final-compliant T-jet engine, the basis for the Formula 4 single-seaters. It also pays homage to the “Formula Italia” single-seater, created by Carlo Abarth in 1971.
