Smooth on the road in the Yacht Club Capri
We have now outlined that she looks good. But how does she drive? The way a Fiat 500X should drive. This SUV is solid on the road with no frills, solid and smooth. Under the hood we see a new 1.5 turbo engine, the 48-volt/15-kW e-motor and the new 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. With a 130 hp petrol block and 240 Nm of pulling power. This is supported by a BSG (belt start generator) electric motor for a silent, 100% electric start. And that drives quite well, very nice is the quiet acceleration of the electric motor with a soft transition to the petrol engine. With the electric motor you can drive up to 20 km/h and 3 kilometers fully electrically. It is a hybrid so the battery is automatically charged when braking. The advantages of this are immediately noticeable: more driving pleasure, quieter traffic jams and more driving comfort. That’s really enjoying two worlds.
Electric gadgets and finally, Apple Carplay
In the mahogany dashboard we see subtle buttons in style and on top of a 7-inch touchscreen with bluetooth etc. And yes, fortunately Fiat has expanded its UCONNECT ™ with Apple Carplay and Android Auto. Nice standard things in the Fiat are cruise control, white leather steering wheel with audio controls, air conditioning, extra tinted windows and the 18-inch alloy wheels. Nice package, and that for a very competitive price.
