We are all excited about the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, and one of the leading attractions of the show will be the Fiat Freemont that makes its debut. The car will go on sale in 2011. The Fiat Freemont is built on the base of the Dodge Journey, and is the first vehicle from the company’s partnership with the Chrysler Group. The Fiat Freemont will be manufactured in the Mexican plant of Toluca, where the Fiat 500 is produced for the US market.
The Fiat Freemont boasts of a very muscular exterior styling and a strong front end. The suspension and steering system are now more accurate and the car will also have LED lights. It is the perfect choice for people who love speed. The Fiat Freemont brings a choice of 140 horse power and 170 horse power, with manual transmission capabilities. Later, the vehicle will also come in 4×4 versions with 170 HP 2.0 MultiJet and 276 BHP 3.6 petrol V6 engines, both with automatic transmissions.
Interior of the car is equally attractive and spacious. The soft touch plastic relaxes you as you carry on your long drive. The SUV has seven seat capacity with flexible options. The seats can easily be folded according to your needs and preferences.
Other attractive features of the Fiat Freemont are attractive fog lights, a keyless entry system, touch screen radio, Bluetooth, DVD reader and most important and unique feature is parking sensors. The SUV also comes with triple-zone climate control system, roof rails and automatic headlamps and tire pressure monitoring system.
The price of the Fiat wonder is expected to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. Other cars competing with it are Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan Murano. As of now, it is difficult to say whether Fiat will bring this vehicle in the Indian market or not. But considering the company does not have an SUV in its portfolio, it makes sense to bring it in India.
