    Fiat nolonger hosts the BRAND SAVER pdf.

    But, here's a link:

    PS, it looks like all will have backup cameras, with all but the base POP also have rear parking sensors.

    Awesome thanks for sharing the brand saver! I'm curious as to any aesthetic changes for 2018. From the photos in the brand saver it doesn't appear there are any?! I guess will we have to wait and see!

    The link in this thread had also been broken for some time, so I went to the trouble to repost the document -- and now you're saying we've had it posted here for a while?

    Where? Where is there a library of PDF links?

    Nice if you're buying one.

    But overall, it's a cost-savings move due to the product not really selling. Bump the base model in power AND save money at the same time by simplifying the assembly line.

    There are a few questions unanswered by that doc also. Mostly styling related - there were some reasons why the 500T and Abarth had extended front bumpers and different ventilation. The pics on that brochure appear to not be of 2018 models. So the question is, what styling changes will be made to account for proper spacing of the turbo and intercoolers.

    the mini has 134hp, this will be one up and hopefully at a cheaper price. you know they already made their money and they can sell them cheap. i'm waiting on the hybrid version. hoping they make it.
