Re: The FIAT 500X Paris Debut (Competition: Win a trip to Paris!)

The 500x is interesting and the 170bhp with the mated 9 speed auto sounds ideal for what we need, not sure if 9 speed was essential

I note the boot space is 350 ltrs with seats up, I cant find the total space with seats down on the net, any ideas ?

Thx.

Re: The FIAT 500X Paris Debut (Competition: Win a trip to Paris!)

Personally I like it, stylewise anyway. I never got the idea of the 500L, in fact if I was looking for a car of that size I'd have to go away from FIAT.

What I don't get is the engine policy. While it's quite possible that all the engines won't be available in all markets, the idea of a 1.6 petrol as well as more powerful Multiair 1.4s seems a little odd. As the Multiair is quite an expensive unit it seems to my layman's mind that the more you make the cheaper it gets.

Which brings me to another bugbear. It seems that FIAT is spending more time building up a multi-national conglomerate rather than building cars. In the meantime, the Germans are busy buying up Italian companies that have started making better products such as Lamborghini and Ducati. Now it seems that they're about to offload chunks of Ferrari.

While there is the Panda and 500/L/X there is one model missing that everybody else still seems to make, ie. Focus/Golf/3/Megane etc. There needs to be a new Bravo and more rationalisation of the engine range.

They also need to get back to building attractive cars again.
