I think, no matter if any of us like it or not, this will be a hit for Fiat in the US.
This is exactly what they need here to grow the brand.
Let's just hope they price it right.
Among the engines available overseas (US specs have not been announced yet), are a 140HP and 170HP versions of the 1.4 Liter Turbo.
As well as the "old" TigerShark 2.4 Liter with 187HP.
I would guess that all 3 might make it over here.
The 140HP model is FWD and available with a 6 speed auto.
While the other 2 engines are matted to 4WD and 9 speed auto.
I can't wait to see the US version soon.
This will be quite a hot segment for 2015, with the Chevrolet Trax and Honda HR-V coming soon as well.
