Italian group Fiat embodies its program to revitalize the brand Abarth. At the motor show in Frankfurt introduced a new sporty model – Fiat Grande Punto Abarth SS, with a 180-strong engine. This is the car (with minor changes) will be for next year to participate in world championship rally.
Generally, there are two versions of Grande Punto Abarth: the base model, power 150 hp, and a sports SS, has a capacity of 180 hp. Interior gets a sports appearance – clean, without unnecessary detail, but not Spartan. According to the representatives of the Italian company, Fiat Grande Punto Abarth SS is a «hot» hatchback among all represented at the exhibition.
All the Italians do is usually fashionable and sexually, including cars. And this applies not only to supercars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, or a standard of autoerotic – Alfa Romeo Brera. But can it concern such a small series hatchback? Maybe.
On the Fiat stand at the Geneva Motor Show reigns glamour and luxury. Even the coloring of the new Fiat Bravo is called Candy Apple Red (Candy apple red with a taste), not to mention the environment – run the floor besprent paste, shiny chrome balls with logos of Fiat in the background, and of course beautiful girls next to car.
For Bravo Fiat specially made five new engines. Three petrol, capacity 90, 120 and 150 horsepower. And two diesel – 120 and 150 horsepower. Salon is made well, from quality materials. Soft plastic front panel gives the car a rich look. Among unique features can be noted USB connector for connecting portable devices to the audio system.
FIAT opened the summer season by start of selling an open version of super popular in Europe mini-hatchback 500. FIAT 500 C cabriolet is quite significantly different from other versions of this car. If the tissue folding roof is everyday-like, it is with very unusual attachment. Imagine that the roof has a huge hole cut out, leaving only lateral guidance for pulling the cloth. Another strong point of the new FIAT 500 C was the persistence of high levels of climatic and acoustic comfort. At least, so say engineers of Italian automaker.
The seeming simplicity of cabriolet FIAT 500 C – is misleading. Designers require a lot of time to automatically create a collapsible roof, make there a window and the third brake light.
FIAT 500 C buyers can choose from three roof colors: ivory, red and black, as well as from the rich selection of options for paint finishes, including three exclusive colors: pearl red (Ragamuffin Red), Gray (Tech House Grey) and blue (Goth -Metal Blue).
Interior FIAT 500 C is created using high quality materials and fabrics, including leather Frau. Among the technical features worth noting the automatic climate control, an innovative system of Interscope HiFi System, navigation system Blue & Me Map system and Start & Stop.
