Now the 2018 line of Fiat Mobi further enhances this vocation with the arrival of a new version, the GSR Drive, equipped with automated transmission and Firefly 1.0 engine.For its modern and constantly evolving design, the Mobi was chosen to receive for the first time in the history of the Brazilian Fiat the combination of engine 1.0 with automated transmission. And in the meantime, it justified this merit: in the tests of Inmetro-PBEV the Mobi Drive GSR (the acronym GSR stands for Gear Smart Ride) achieved the lowest urban cycle fuel consumption among all the models equipped with 1.0 engine for sale in the country.This exceptional result in reduction of consumption, as well as emissions, comes with a new level of comfort for the segment, thanks to the GSR-Comfort automated transmission driven by buttons on the console and wings behind the steering wheel. The set is complemented by the brand new Firefly 1.0 three-cylinder engine, electric steering with City function and the exclusive Fiat Live On entertainment system on board.The Mobi line 2018 has five versions, with new content offerings: Easy, Like, Way

Preferred by buyers for its intelligent use of internal space with reduced external dimensions and differentiated design, Mobi recently won the Drive version with Firefly 1.0 three-cylinder engine. And now it also receives the GSR-Comfort transmission, which unifies the convenience of an automated transmission to the efficiency and performance of the Firefly 1.0 engine, further boosting the fuel economy, especially in situations of intense traffic in the big cities.In the center console five buttons allow easy activation, including Sport function, which triggers a more sporty driving mode. By means of flaps on the steering wheel the driver, if desired, can change the gears manually, even when the transmission is in the automatic position.The Mobi Drive GSR transmission features the Creeping function, which makes starting and maneuvering much more comfortable and safe, including ramps up to 8% inclination.

The new three-cylinder Firefly 1.0 engine adopts 2-valve-per-cylinder architecture with optimized set geometry. This technical design results in high power, higher torque at low engine speeds and reduced fuel consumption – in short, a perfect fit for urban use.The Firefly 1.0 works in a lower gear, assuring Mobi more silence on board and more pleasurable driving.
