Which Fiat 500X engine should I choose?

I have a choice of two Fiat 500X 2020 reg models with petrol engines. One with the 1.0l Firefly engine and the other with the 1.4l engine in the Sport version of the model.

My wife is not looking for a sports car but one that is good for local travel with occasional sorties onto 'A' roads and motorways.

Which of the engines would you suggest as preferable all-rounder?

The 2020 Fiat 500X was available with 1.0-litre or 1.3-litre Firefly engines offering 120PS and 150PS respectively. Both are very capable engines, and would be suitable for your needs. It is worth mentioning that the 1.3-litre Firefly engine is only available with the DCT automatic transmission, so if you want a manual car you will need to choose the 1.0-litre version.
