If you’re wondering what 2018 will have in store here at FIAT of Winter Haven, near Auburndale, FL, a great place to look would be the 2018 Chicago Auto Show. It’s the perfect place to get a look at the FIAT cars on their way as the year goes on.
For instance, you’ll find the 2018 FIAT 500L on display at the Chicago Auto Show. It’s a four-door wagon that seats five. The 2018 model will be the first in its line to have a standard backup camera. The exterior has also been redesigned to give it a sleeker appearance. A 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission power the front-wheel drive 2018 FIAT 500L.
It’s been almost 50 years since the original FIAT 124 Spider debuted at the Chicago Auto Show and it 2018 descendant is poised to do the same. With a 1.4-liter, 160 horsepower MultiAir turbo four-cylinder engine and choice of a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, this classic roadster performance is as sporty as its looks. The 2018 FIAT 124 Spider comes in three trims with one limited-production edition, none of which will disappoint. Your choices are the Classica, the Lusso, the Abarth, or the limited-production Red Sport Edition. This model has a few things the FIAT 124 Spider didn’t have 50 years ago, such as adaptive front headlamps and rear cross path detection.
Last but not least, there’s the 2018 FIAT 500X. New for the 2018 model, a seven-inch touchscreen comes standard and pairs with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. A 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or a 2.4-liter four-cylinder will power the five-seat crossover SUV in Pop, Trekking, or Lounge trims.
After getting a first look at these great driving machines at the Chicago Auto Show, be sure to visit FIAT of Winter Haven to give them a test drive!
