Fiat is shifting gears for the 2015 model year, offering the performance-oriented small car, the 500 Turbo, with an optional six-speed automatic transmission in an effort to lure younger buyers. Visitors to the 2014 New York International Auto Show can see the new 500 Turbo — sans stick — today through April 27 as Fiat showcases the model's 2015 lineup.
Set to arrive at dealerships in July, the new 500 Turbo continues to offer a Fiat-fabulous look, punctuated by an aggressive front end, unique 16-inch aluminum wheels, a roofline-elongating liftgate-mounted spoiler and a black-accented rear diffuser. Inside, the 500 Turbo gets a new-for-2015 instrument panel with a 7-inch high-definition display.
