Fiat Sedici Crossover Facelift Unveiled, New Engines Included
Although judging from the design point of view the new Sedici isn't actually a new model, the most important upgrade is represented by the addition of two new powertrains, as the folks over at Carscoop wrote. More specifically, the Italian manufacturer included a 1.6-liter gasoline engine that develops 120 horsepower and replaces the 1.6-liter unit 107 hp, as well as a 2.0-liter Multijet 16V turbo diesel producing 135 horsepower that replaces the 1.9-liter JTD 120 hp.
The car will be offered with either a front-wheel drive system or a four-wheel drive configuration.
Fiat Sedici was first launched in 2006 at the Geneva Motor Show and is currently manufactured by Fiat's Hungarian plant in Esztergom. The design of the first Sedici was made by Giorgetto Giugiaro's Italdesign studio.
Fiat Sedici is currently offered in a choice of two engines, a 1.6-liter 16V and a 1.9-liter Multijet. Separately, the 1.6l option develops 109 horsepower at 5600 rpm and 107 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, while helping the car sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 11.5 seconds - top speed goes as high as 105.6 mph (170 km/h). The 1.9l configuration on the other hand generates 122 horsepower and 206.5 lb-ft of torque at 2050 rpm, with 0-100 acceleration in 11.2 seconds and maximum speed of 111.9 mph (180 km/h).
