    A Look at Fiat's New Automatic Transmission

    Last updated 1 day 18 hours ago

    The Fiat 500 Abarth is an aggressive and sport tuned member of the Fiat lineup. Until recently, this track-ready addition to the Fiat family was only available with a manual transmission. Now, Fiat is introducing a new automatic transmission to the Fiat 500 Abarth model. Whether you prefer the classic performance of a stick shift or the added convenience of an automatic, now you will be able to get behind the wheel of a Fiat 500 Abarth that is tailored to you. Let’s explore some of the highlights of Fiat’s brand new transmission.

    Six Speed Aisin Automatic
    Fiat’s new 500 Abarth model is now available with a six speed Aisin automatic transmission. This state-of-the-art transmission system offers lighting fast shifting and smooth performance dynamics. In addition, Fiat’s new automatic transmission delivers 157 horsepower to the wheels of the Abarth. When you drive a new Fiat Abarth that is equipped with an automatic transmission, you are sure to experience a uniquely sporty driving thrill.

    Performance Tuned Features
    Fiat has ensured that its new transmission does not sacrifice the performance dynamics that drivers have come to expect from the sporty Abarth model. From behind the wheel, you will have access to features that allow the automatic transmission to behave like a manual. For example, Fiat’s new automatic transmission has been engineered to provide fuel-cut upshifts, rev-matching downshifts, and corner gear holds. With these great features, you will be able to enjoy the precision of a manual, while taking advantage of the ease of an automatic.

    Enjoy the Fresh Air with the 2014 Chrysler 200

    Last updated 27 days ago

    As any driver knows who has owned a convertible, it can be a challenge getting anybody into the backseat. But the 2014 Chrysler 200 stands apart from others in its segment, best-in-class rear passenger legroom and a total of 13.3 cubic feet of cargo space.

    Optional Hardtop

    While the 2014 Chrysler 200 comes with a beautiful soft-top as standard equipment, you have the option of upgrading to a retractable hardtop that offers improved security and enhanced insulation from noise. Both the soft- and hardtop are power-operated, so taking the top down or putting it back up takes a scant 30 seconds.

    Optional Luxury Features

    The 2014 Chrysler 200 convertible can be equipped with luxury amenities such as a leather interior and a premium Boston Acoustics stereo. The Uconnect infotainment system with a 6.5-inch touchscreen interface is also available, which gives you the ability to add an address to the optional navigation system using a simple voice command.
