    It has the Pentastar 3. Fiat has issued a recall for of its to model-year Freemont SUVs over concerns the spare wheel and tyre do not comply with Australian Design Rules. Anyone with children will know how they like to lean hard on them to climb up into their seat. And that brings me perhaps not so neatly to the Fiat Freemont. The manufacturer reports that the steering wheel wire harness may become trapped between a tab on the wheel plastic back cover and the edge of the horn plate

    Fiat Freemont Lounge review | Practical Motoring

    Indeed, as I write, Fiat is contemplating shifting its international headquarters from its Turin birthplace to the US. And that brings me perhaps not so neatly to the Fiat Freemont. The Fiat Freemont is the first result, at least here in Australia, of the tie-up between Fiat and Chrysler. The Fiat Freemont makes do with either a 2. But Fiat has done a lot more with the Freemont than just add a Fiat badge to the front of a Dodge. The front and rear of the vehicle have been given a tweak here and there with the Fiat Freemont looking more purposeful than its Dodge Journey sibling.

    As for the rest of the vehicle, well, bar a few cosmetic flourishes, like a blacked-out side strip to create the impression of there only being a single side window, it follows the look of the Dodge. Swathed in soft-touch materials and beautiful soft matt finishes on the plastic bright work, big buttons, and a nice high-set driving position all combine to give the Freemont, at least initially, an air of feeling more expensive than it actually is.

    Sadly that feeling soon wears off, though. Sitting up nice and high, and with big wing mirrors, the Fiat Freemont offers good forward and side vision, but with numerous pillars in the way and a small rear windscreen, you have to be extra careful with lane changes, shoulder checks and reverse parking.

    Luckily the Fiat Freemont has front and rear reversing sensors and a camera display on the huge 8. In the Freemont Lounge the touchscreen is the interface for the vast majority of controls, from connecting your phone to adjusting the seat heaters, and just about everything else in between.

    And you can navigate your way from pairing your phone to looking up an address quickly and easily. The stadium-style seating arrangement meaning the second row is mounted slightly higher than the front, and the third row is slightly higher than the second in the Fiat Freemont allows for all passengers, even those right down the back in the third row, to have a view, not just to the side, but also of the road ahead.

    Speaking of the seats, both the second and third row can be folded totally flat into the floor offering storage space of litres or enough for a soft bag or two with the third row in place; litres if the third row is folded flat; and litres or enough for 10 suitcases, says Fiat with both the third and second row folded flat. The tilt-and-slide function on the second row of seats makes climbing into the back seats, even for a six-footer like me, a relatively simple affair.

    But, I like the fact the rear doors can be opened right out to degrees to make it easier to get in and out of the third row, and the doors seems solid enough too. Anyone with children will know how they like to lean hard on them to climb up into their seat. According to the press pack, the Fiat Freemont contains more than 20 storage compartments and I found just about all of them. As mentioned earlier, the Fiat Freemont offers minimal boot space when all three rows are being used, but the simple fact that every seat can be folded flat means you can load bulky items inside the vehicle quite easily.

    And the flat, low load lip means heaving items into and out of the boot is a cinch. This is mated to a six-speed automatic and fuel consumption, according to Fiat, is a combined 9. Part of the problem is the tall gearing and the fact that peak power and torque are delivered quite high in the rev range.

    And speaking of the gearbox, despite being a six-speed unit, it feels more like an old-school four-speed automatic transmission. Turn into a corner and you find yourself see-sawing slightly at the wheel to get a sense of where the front wheels are pointing. As for the ride, well, no doubt the engineers have done the best job possible with what they had to begin with.
