The New 595 Line-Up: Even More Abarth Following the launch of Abarth 124 spider, it is the evolution of the Abarth icon that since 2008 has gained enthusiasts at global level. Available as hatchback or convertible, the line-up features three trim levels – 595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione – corresponding to three levels of engine power and tuning. One of the major innovations is the increased power of the 1.4 T-jet engine equipping the 595 (145 HP) and 595 Turismo (165 HP) versions, the latter with Garrett turbine. The 595 Competizione is now optionally available with mechanical limited-slip differential (Abarth D.A.M.) to improve traction in extreme conditions. Koni FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) shock absorbers for 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione. New front end with oversized air intake, new and more pronounced rear diffuser and new specific inserts. New polyelliptical headlight clusters and LED daylights are standard. Xenon headlights available on request. The new 17” Granturismo alloy rims are 7% lighter and with more than 50% greater ventilating surface. New body colours: Modena Yellow, Abarth Red, three-layer Iridato White and the Scorpione Black/Podio Blue, Scorpione Black/Record Grey and Pista Grey/Abarth Red two-colour combos. The interiors are even more exclusive with the use of new technical materials, such as Alcantara® and carbon fibre. Corsa by Sabelt leather and Alcantara® seats with carbon shell are available on demand. New sporty flat-bottom steering wheel with viewfinder and a one-of-a-kind racing-derived instrument panel. Début of the Uconnect system – of which two 5’’ and 7” HD versions are available with high-def screen, navigator and DAB digital radio – and of the powerful 480 W BeatsAudio™ Hi-Fi system with seven speakers. FCA Bank, dedicated to motorists, is supporting the launch of the New 595 Abarth with an array of specific financing packages, insurance products and services tailored for each European market. It has been just over two months since the launch of Abarth 124 spider and now the brand with the Scorpion trademark is generating buzz again. The New Abarth 595 is the development of the iconic model: more powerful engines, even richer standard equipment and plenty of product innovations, some of which are usually reservedfor higher segment cars. With sales kicking off in June across the EMEA region, the new Abarth model is reasserting its reputation as a compact, lightweight and agile car and as a unique model in terms of configuration and tuning. In brief, the New Abarth 595 is the natural heir of the model launched in 2008 andpresent worldwide.Performance, technology and iconic Italian style are the key factors of a very successful strategy. Available as a hatchback or convertible, the New Abarth 595 is offered with three trim levels (595, 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione) and three power levels to satisfy the requirements of increasingly demanding and competent customers. Many of the upgrades introduced are the result of experience gained with the development of the 695 Biposto, dubbed the "smallest supercar", which implements real racing thrills and technology on a street-legal car. The distinctive yet affordable 595version is the Abarth entry levelmodel and offers all the standard equipment needed to ensure typical Scorpion enjoyment and driving pleasure. What is more, 595 is the ideal base for drivers who want to tune their car over time and make it unique. The 595 Competizione and 595 Turismo versions express other two distinctive souls of Abarth. The first, more "purist", is designed for those who love performance and no-compromise sportiness. The second, on the other hand, makes reference to the typical values of the Italian GTs in a compact size perfect for use in cities. Engine and gearbox One of the biggest innovations is the increased power of the 1.4 T-jet engine installed on the 595 and 595 Turismo versions. The first delivers 145 HP and 206 Nm of peak torque, while the second reaches 165 HP and 230 Nm. What is more, the latter is fitted with aGarrett turbine. On the other hand, 595 Competizione with its 180 HP is the car for drivers who crave racing adrenaline in terms of both performance and technical features. Accelerating from 0-100 in 6.7” and then braking safely with the oversize Brembo braking system with four-piston fixed aluminium callipers will be a pleasure in the anatomical “Abarth Corsa by Sabelt” shell seats. Moreover, the engine also achieves a specific power of 132 HP/litre as a result of the high-performance Record Monza exhaust with dual mode system.This exclusive feature is available, on request, on the rest of the range, together with the Record Modena exhaust that ensures identical performance combined with a less aggressive looking tailpipe. As standard, all variants of the 1.4 T-jet engine are paired with a mechanical five-speed gearbox but they can be fitted with an Abarth robotised sequential gearbox with shift paddles. Abarth D.A.M. The New Abarth 595 is the only car in its segment to fit a truly exclusive mechanical limited-slip differential (Abarth D.A.M.), for superlative performance. Available on demand, the Abarth mechanical limited-slip differential is available on the 595 Competizionewith manual transmission and derives directly from the experience acquired on the 695 Biposto. The Abarth mechanical limited-slip differential exploits the full potential of the 595 Competizione to the utmost and improves traction in extreme conditions. The mechanical limited-slip differential ensures adequate torque transferbetween the front wheels when either has less grip (a typical example is the different speed coming out of curves taken with high lateral load). This equipment allows the driver to close the line and eliminates understeer. Abarth D.A.M. is contained in the new Performance Pack – available on the New Abarth 595 Competizione with manual gearbox only – which includes 17” Supersport rims and Sabelt leather/Alcantara® seats with carbon shell, carved aluminium 595 badgeand the red, white or glossy black customisation pack to personalise the look of the car. Brakes, suspension and Sport button Standard on 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione are the Koni FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) rear shock absorbers that optimise the driving experience and safety by improving road-hold, handling and stability. And now, the same shocks are fitted as standard on 595 Competizione on the front suspension, with a considerable increase in dynamic performance. Also on the top-of-the-range version is theBrembobraking system with four-piston aluminium monoblock fixed callipers – standard red or optionally grey, black or yellow – combined with 305 mm ventilated and perforated discs. The standard callipers are instead black on the 595 Turismo, with red or yellow offered as alternatives. Finally, the New Abarth 595 also fits a Sport buttonto change different parameters of the car: from maximum torque output to power steering calibration to get a more direct and less invasive feel. Furthermore, the system adjusts the accelerator pedal calibration to guarantee prompter response and the TFT instrument panel switches to racing configuration, in perfect Abarth style. Exteriors On the outside, the New Abarth 595 has plenty of new features which improve performance. The front end, for example, was redesigned and nowhas an oversized air intake: this improves heat management in the engine compartment and increases cooling capacity by 18%. So, performance and regularity of engine delivery are increased, even in the case of more extreme racing tuning. Abarth engineers also worked on the rear bumper creating a more pronounced diffuser. Specific bumper inserts have also been created for each trim level. They are matte black for the 595, in matching body colour on the 595 Turismo and with the tar cold grey finish on the 595 Competizione. The front and rear headlight clusters are also new, with polyelliptical headlights and LED daytime running lights on the entire range as standard equipment. Xenon headlights are optionally available. They ensure better emitted light quality and excellent efficiency in all weather conditions because they are nearly three times brighter and longer lasting than normal halogen headlights. The new 17’’ Granturismo rims (standard on 595 Turismo) are 7% lighter and have over 50% more ventilating surface to the benefit of heat dissipation, and enhanced and more consistent braking system performance as a consequence. The distinctive features of the new Abarth 595 include new satin chrome trim on the 595 and Turismo versions, new mirror caps (satin chrome on 595 Turismo, matching body colour on 595 and tar cold grey on 595 Competizione) and the side stripes (standard on 595 Competizione), now wider and longer to give greater emphasis to the Abarth brand. Available in 15 body colours - including pastel, metallic and three-layer paints and five two-tone liveries - the exciting colour palette of the New Abarth 595 includes besides standard Pista Grey the exclusive Modena Yellow, until now only available on the 695 Biposto Record, the sporty and bright new Abarth Red pastel and the new three-layer Iridato White. Making their début are the three new two-colour combos: Scorpione Black/Podio Blue and Scorpione Black/Record Grey and Pista Grey/Abarth Red. Finally, three packs for customising the appearance of the car are available on demand with Abarth side sticker, mirror caps and front and rear bumper inserts in three colours: white, black or red. Interiors The New Abarth 595 is completely new on the inside, too. New technical materials, like Alcantara® and carbon fibre cleverly reassert the sporty character of the model. Furthermore, new upholstery is available on the entire range. In particular, the 595 version offers specific Abarth fabric seats characterised by extraordinary lateral support. The 595 Turismoversion comes with black, tan or red leather seats, while standard on the 595 Competizione are the Corsa by Sabelt seats, amongst the best supporting seats on the market today. They provide extraordinary lateral support and are perfect for sporty driving due to their ability to accurately transmit every minimum load shift to the driver. The seats have fabric upholstery with new graphics and materials for maximising grip. Leather and Alcantara® alternatives in the shades of black or tan are optionally available. Furthermore, the new flat bottom steering wheel with viewfinder was designed to ensure effective sporty driving. Inmoredetail, the standard steering wheel for the Competizione version is made of technical materials, such as carbon fibre and Alcantara®. The dashboard fascia, which has always been one of the most iconic features of the 595, is specifically characterised for each version: matching body colour on 595, matte grey on 595 Turismo and tar cold grey on 595 Competizione. The carbon dashboard fascia derived from the 695 Biposto is now available as optional equipment and may be ordered to complement the passenger compartment of the 595 Competizione even further. The innovations continue with a brandnew sports instrument panel,which improves readability, especially with the new graphics that characterise the Sport mode. Moreover, the manometer lighting is white so as to make reading easier and more immediate. Infotainment All versions are equipped with Uconnect™ 5” Radio with touchscreen and Uconnect Live services as standard equipment (also with built-in navigator and DAB on request). Uconnect™ 7” HD, a fast platform complete with high-def screen, navigation and DAB digital radio, is also appearing for the first time on the range. The Uconnect 7” HD system comes with high-def screen andAbarth Telemetryun for gauging driving performance on preloaded circuits to study driving style and improve it. It is also customisable, offering the possibility to record new tracks and store them for later retrieval to compare performance. With the preloaded points of interest (Officine Abarth and other significant places for the brand) each owner can now "collect" special badges. Results and progress can naturally be shared on the social pages. Apple CarPlay and Google Android Auto – considered the best smartphone mirroring solutions for Apple iOS and Android – will become available upon request on Uconnect 7". This will allow quick and easy access to all the functions and contents of the smartphone on the touchscreen of the New Abarth 595s. Finally, the refined and powerful BeatsAudio™ system with seven speakers is making its appearance on the New Abarth 595. It will certainly win over even the most demanding music lovers. Developed in collaboration with Beats by Dr.Dre, the BeatsAudioTM system boasts an impressive total output of 480 watts and features a digital eight-channel amplifier integrating an advanced equalisation algorithm capable of recreating the entire sound spectrum that an artist experiences during studio recording. The Beats AudioTM sound system has two dome tweeters installed in the front pillars, two 165 mm midwoofers in the front doors, two full-range 165 mm speakers in the rear side panels and one 200 mm subwoofer in the middle of the boot in the spare wheel compartment.

http://www.omniauto.it/magazine/32941/nuova-fiat-bravo-rendering-foto Nuova Fiat Bravo, ce la immaginiamo così Le Fiat 500, berlina, C, L e X sono un ottimo successo. Una gamma di prodotti ben caratterizzati, con qualità positive, che riscuotono l'apprezzamento del pubblico e non solamente in Italia. Rappresentano benissimo quello spirito emozionale e aspirazionale che è la metà del marchio Fiat. L'altra metà dovrebbe essere, invece, contraddistinta da un carattere più funzionale e razionale, quello della Panda e della Punto, per esempio. Peccato che questa parte della gamma sia molto più obsoleta dell'altra e che, Panda a parte, necessiti dei maggiori interventi. Il primo di questi potrebbe anche derivare dal progetto Aegea, ovvero la berlina a tre volumi compatta destinata ai mercati mediorientali, da cui dovrebbe derivare la prossima segmento C di Fiat, sia berlina che station wagon. Praticamente la nuova Bravo, sempre che questo nome venga mantenuto. Linea semplice e razionalePartendo dalle forme della Aegea a tre volumi abbiamo provato a immaginare come sarebbe la nuova Fiat Bravo, cioè quella progettata e sviluppata per il mercato europeo. Ovviamente, visti i gusti degli automobilisti del Vecchio Continente, è impensabile proporre da noi una compatta a tre volumi, tuttavia lo stile potrebbe in qualche modo essere coerente col progetto di partenza e mantenere quindi un accenno di coda. Per il resto, la forma del padiglione e delle luci posteriori riprendono quelli della versione originale, confermando uno stile che, tutto sommato si può definire piacevole. Si tratterebbe, quindi, di una Bravo ancora più razionale e pragmatica rispetto alla precedente, depurata di ogni velleità sportiveggiante e votata alla praticità d'uso. Sotto c'è la 500LLo conferma anche il fatto che la piattaforma su cui è stata sviluppata è quella B-Small della 500L, più semplice rispetto alla C-Wide della Bravo precedente e della Alfa Romeo Giulietta, ma del resto tutte le concorrenti del segmento C sono andate nella stessa direzione, quella della semplificazione. In questo caso, però, le sospensioni posteriori potrebbero non essere a ponte torcente, ma utilizzare lo schema del Doblò, ovvero il Bi-Link a due bracci e mezzo. Quanto ai motori, non c'è nessuna speculazione da fare, nel senso che il 1.4 T-Jet e il 1.6 Multijet, declinati in diverse potenze, rappresenteranno certamente il baricentro e la gran parte della gamma della nuova Fiat.
"Prima maşină": preţ maxim 12.400 Euro, credit pe 7 ani şi avans mic www.informatiiauto.ro/prima-masina-pret-maxim-12400-euro-credit-pe-7-ani-si-avans-mic-sid14447.html Perioada de creditare de până la 7 ani şi un avans cuprins între 5 şi 7% din valoarea autoturismului nou sunt primele criterii de selecţie pentru noul program „Prima maşină”. Potrivit unor surse apropiate discuţiilor, acestea sunt cifrele asupra cărora au căzut de acord cei mai mari jucători din auto şi autorităţile din cadrul Ministerului Economiei, transmite zf.ro Preţul maxim al maşinilor noi, ce vor fi acceptate spre achiziţie în noul program, va fie de 45.000 de lei fără TVA, fie de 50.000 de lei fără TVA, potrivit surselor citate. Diferenţa de 5.000 de lei este una importantă în special pentru importatori, care în general comercializează maşini mai scumpe decât cele vândute de Dacia. Astfel, dacă pragul rămâne la 10.000 de euro fără TVA (12.400 de euro cu TVA), în program pot intra toate modele Dacia, dar nu se încadrează modelul Ford B-Max, produs de americani la Craiova. Dacă pragul ar fi de 50.000 de lei fără TVA sau circa 13.700 de euro cu TVA, atunci ar putea intra inclusiv B-Max cu motorul EcoBoost de 1,0 litri, de asemenea produs în România. Al doilea punct la care încă se discută între jucătorii din auto şi autorităţi reprezintă vârsta celor ce se vor putea încadra în program. În discuţie sunt cei cu vârste cuprinse între 18 şi 35 de ani, dar pragul superior se poate extinde până la 50 de ani. Pe lângă Programul Rabla, Guvernul vrea să ajute tinerii să-şi cumpere o maşină nouă, în condiţiile în acum se introduc în ţară de trei ori mai multe maşini second-hand. Guvernul vrea să pună la punct, până în toamnă, un sistem de garantare a creditelor pentru acest program, unde vor fi acceptate doar maşinile noi. ================ 14 maşini noi numai bune pentru Prima Maşină Programul guvernamental „Prima Maşină” ne-a făcut să ne întrebăm oare care ar fi alegerea ideală ca prim autovehicul deţinut. După câteva ore de calcul, am găsit 14 modele disponibile la noi în ţară. Detalii în continuare. Am vrea să dăm, mai întâi, câteva explicaţii legat de alegerile pe care le-am făcut. În primul rând, am simulat situaţia românului cu venit mediu, pentru care bugetul este o mare provocare; apoi ne-am gândit la maşini care satisfac multe dintre nevoile şoferilor în ceea ce ţine de confort, spaţiu şi, nu în ultimul rând, plăcerea de a conduce. Aşadar, lista de mai jos – în care autovehiculele vor fi trecute în ordine alfabetică, fără a constitui un top – conţine doar maşini din clasa mică şi subcompactă, clase entry-level care bifează pe cât posibil caracteristici specifice claselor mai mari. De asemenea, am luat în calcul ceea ce deja avem pe piaţă, excluzând modelele care au primit generaţii noi care încă nu au ajuns în ţară (ex. Opel Corsa, Renault Twingo etc.).

Paris LIVE: 2015 Fiat 500X http://www.leftlanenews.com/fiat-500x.html Fiat has finally lifted the veil on its 500X compact crossover at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. As expected, 500X's front end is heavily inspired by the aging 500 city car. The crossover looks considerably more rugged than the 500 thanks in part to black plastic trim around the wheel arches and on the rocker panels as well as faux brushed aluminum trim on the lower bumper. Despite its small footprint, the 500X will offer room for up to five passengers and their gear. Most models will come equipped with a configurable thin-film transistor (TFT) screen mounted in the instrument cluster, and more expensive trim levels will come equipped with a color touch screen that will run Fiat-Chrysler's latest Uconnect infotainment system. The Fiat 500X will share its basic architecture with the Jeep Renegade that debuted in Geneva last March. In Europe, the X will be offered with a 0.9-liter two-cylinder TwinAir engine, a 1.4-liter MultiAir four-banger and a 1.3-liter MultiJet turbodiesel four. It remains to be seen which mills will be offered in the U.S., but the Renegade's 1.4-liter and 2.4-liter seem likely. Chrysler's new nine-speed automatic will be offered on at least one of the engine choices. The Fiat 500X will go on sale across the United States early next year. Pricing remains a mystery at this point, but the Fiat 500X should come in just below the $20,000 mark.
