Latest News: In an evolutionary year for Jeep, the new plug-in hybrid Renegade and Compass will make their Italian debut at the Salone dell'Auto in Turin. Visitors to the Parco del Valentino will be able to admire these new models while listening to the sights and sounds of the natural world around them, as the Renegade takes its first on-road appearance. International on-road debut of the New Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid The Turin event marks the first on-road appearance of Renegade with plug-in hybrid technology (PHEV). The new SUV will set off from Piazza Vittorio Veneto on a parade around the city centre. Both the Renegade and Compass emit less than 50g/km CO2 and are even more fun to drive courtesy of the smooth acceleration and engine response. They are both fitted with plug-in hybrid propulsion systems, and batteries which can be recharged by the internal combustion engine or from an external power outlet and, as a consequence, can store an impressive amount of electric energy. This combination translates into a pure electric range of approximately 50km and a top speed of approximately 130km/h in full electric mode for both Renegade and Compass. The electric units work in synergy with the new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engines to increase efficiency and power overall. The combined action of the two propulsion systems produces up to 240hp. The off-road benefits of hybrid propulsion The high torque of the electric motor, and the ability to adjust it with extreme precision during initial acceleration while driving on the most challenging terrain, will further improve the legendary capability of the Jeep range. Thanks to the new electric all-wheel-drive technology (eAWD), traction to the rear axle is not provided by a prop shaft but through a dedicated electric motor. This allows the two axles to be separated and to control the torque independently in a more effective way than a mechanical system.

The New Abarth 124 spider : 

The model in brief

The new Abarth 124 spider aims at sweeping a new generation of enthusiasts off their feet with its performance and technical DNA. The model combines the authentic roadster experience packed with thrills, technology, safety with a touch of unmistakable Italian design.

Performance DNA

The new Abarth 124 spider guarantees all the thrills and fun that only a real spider can offer. Developed with the Abarth Racing team, the car perfectly embodies the leading values of the brand: performance, artisan craft, technical excellence. This is a car designed to put the smile back on the faces of those lucky enough to drive it.
For outstanding dynamic performance, Abarth 124 spider fits a mechanical self-locking differential as standard equipment. The weight is concentrated between the axles and the engine is installed behind the front axle to guarantee optimal agility and superior driving feel. Sophisticated mechanics and the use of special materials have been used to contain the weight to just 1060 kilograms, which results in a weight-to-power ratio of 6.2 kg/HP, the best in its category. Furthermore, the optimal weight distribution guarantees excellent feedback and agility.

The suspension of the 124 spider features high double wishbone suspension on the front and a five-arm multi-link on the rear. The set-up is calibrated specifically to increase stability on corners and for compression braking. Steering feedback is optimised by adopting a specific sports calibration of the power steering system.

Under the bonnet is a powerful, ultra-reliable 1.4 litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine with MultiAir technology. It delivers 170 HP (that is about 124 HP per litre) and 250 Nm of torque: it has a top speed of 232 km/h and goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds. What is more, the engine sound is a fundamental element of all Abarth cars, and standard equipment includes the Record Monza exhaust with dual mode system capable of modifying the path of the exhaust gas according to engine rpm and generating a satisfying, deep sound.
The spider is available with a six-speed manual or an automatic Esseesse Sports Sequential gearbox.
