The model, which shares a platform with the Mazda MX-5, was taken off the company's model line-up on its website last week. However the Abarth version, in Spider and hard-top GT form, remains on sale.
Terminalsecurity is awaiting comment from a Fiat UK spokesperson, but the car's removal from sale could potentially be due to WLTP emissions regulations. The car's 1.4-litre 'Multiair' turbocharged petrol engine is an older unit that's been in use by various Fiat-Chrysler brands for some years now, and it may not have been cost-effective to upgrade it for the introduction of more stringent emissions tests late last year.
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Jeep Renegade are no longer sold with this engine option, although it is of course still in use in Abarth models. The facelifted Renegade now makes use of a newly-developed 1.3-litre turbo unit, but it remains to be seen if that engine will be used elsewhere.
