Fiat at The 2019 NY Auto Show

Fiat at the 2019 NY Auto Show

Fiat is displaying their 2019 model lineup at the 2019 NY Auto Show, going on Fri, Apr 19, 2019 – Sun, Apr 28, 2019. Here is a sneak peek at the cars on display.

Fiat 500X Adventurer Edition

The 2019 Fiat 500X was prominently displayed with the Adventurer Edition package. Note the new LED headlight design!


2019 Fiat 500X Adventurer Edition


2019 Fiat FireFly Turbo Engine

The 2019 Fiat 500X has a new standard engine- the powerful 1.3 FireFly Turbo -which gives the 500X the best-in-class torque rating of 210 lb.-ft.

Fiat 500 Abarth

The Fiat 500 Abarth was on display and is unchanged from the 2019 model year, other than some color changes.


Fiat 500 Abarth at NY Auto Show

Technically, the model on display was a late build (November) 2018 car. The 2018 Fiat 500 hatch and Cabrio models had a delayed introduction last year and is one of the reasons there are no real changes for 2019.

Fiat 124 Spider Urbana

The recently announced, Fiat 124 Spider Urbana Edition made its public introduction.

We broke the story that there was going to be an Urbana package available for the Spider one year ago nearly to the day.


Fiat 124 Spider Urbana Interior

The Urbana Edition is an option package on the base Classica model and offers numerous upgrades and enhancements at a terrific price point.


Fiat 124 Spider Abarth

The Fiat 124 Spider Abarth with the Veleno Appearance Group makes the North American Abarth Spider look like the European model.

124 Abarth Veleno

The 124 Abarth Veleno Appearance package is available on cars painted Brillante White and  adds the following:

  • Abarth Carpeted Floor Mats 
  • Bright Dead Pedal 
  • Red Fascia Lower Lip
  • Red Mirror Cap
  • Red Tow Eye Opening Cap

Priced at $495, it is a bargain.


Fiat 500L

The Fiat 500L is the ultimate family car with that offers subcompact exterior dimensions with the interior room of a full-sized car.
