Abarth 595 Competizione Price

Being a CBU, it is, as expected, not cheap. The 595 Competizione is priced at Rs 29.85 Lakhs ex-showroom in Delhi. However, later, if Fiat decides to assemble it locally obviously if sales justify, we may see a drop in price tag after a year or so.

And if this is out of your budget, wait for the Punto and Avventura Abarths!
