Fiat has introduced two new ‘Dynamic’ versions of its family size Ritmo hatchback into the range featuring revised trim and equipment levels.
The Dynamic specification models offer a lower price point into the Fiat Ritmo range, joining the existing Sport and Emotion equipment packages already offered in Australia.
Insisting this is not a poverty pack option, standard equipment still includes air conditioning, digital audio system, remote central locking, cruise control, trip computer, front power windows, plus a carbon fibre effect and chrome trimmed interior.
Safety hasn’t been compromised either, with ABS and six airbags as standard with Fiat’s three year / 100,000km warranty which includes 24 hour roadside assistance.
The Ritmo range now opens at just $24,990 for the 1.4-litre Fire engine producing 66kW and 128Nm, with a combined fuel consumption figure of 6.7l/100 km.
Also, for the first time Fiat’s 1.9 litre 88kW advanced Turbo Diesel engine falls under the $30,000 price point, offering exception fuel economy of just 4.3-litres per 100 km of fuel on the open road for $29,990.
In a recent study performed by the Australian Government’s Green Vehicle Guide, the entire Fiat range rounded out the top five best performers across the market.
