This years Melbourne Motor Show will feature the latest models from Fiat, including the ?just off the boat? Ritmo range of hatchbacks. Set to go on sale in March, Fiat will be announcing pricing at this years show.
The Ritmo comes with a choice of two engines, a 1.4-litre turbocharged TJET petrol and a 1.9-litre JTD turbo-diesel diesel. The petrol engine is good for 110kW and 206Nm while the diesel is the choice for lovers of torque, matching the petrol engine on power but producing 305Nm of torque.
Both engines are available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes cruise control, alloy wheels, climate-control air conditioning, stability control and six airbags. The Ritmo?s hatchback interior is described as roomy and practical and features a 400-litre boot capacity.
Notably, the Ritmo. like its smaller brother the Punto, has achieved the maximum five star Euro-NCAP safety rating. You can see the Ritmo in person by visiting the Melbourne Motor Show which opens to the public on Friday the 29th of Februaury.
