Fiat crossover based on a Toro pickup truck again lit up on videoNovember 2, 2018
The network posted a couple more videoteaser new items from the Italian brand. The official premiere of the Fiat crossover will take place next week.
The new concept SUV company Fiat announced a couple of weeks ago, having published its first teaser. The SUV debuts at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, which will open to media representatives on November 6 of this year. Now there are two more videos with the upcoming Brazilian premiere, one of which demonstrated its interior. But the name of the cross is still kept secret.
According to preliminary data, a serial coupe with a design based on the unnamed prototype will hit the market in 2019, it will be built on the basis of a Fiat Toro pickup. Like the truck, the crossover will be sold mainly in Latin America. By the way, in the first video, concept sketches appeared, judging by which, a coupe-shaped SUV would be brought to Sao Paulo. A seven-seater saloon is suited to a commodity SUV, so obviously, there won’t be a coupe for a three-row car.
The Fiat Toro pickup, in turn, is based on the stretched version of the Small US Wide 4 × 4 platform (this “cart” lies at the heart of the Jeep Renegade and Jeep Compass). The platform assumes a load-bearing structure of the body, the transverse arrangement of the motor and an independent rear suspension.
It was believed that the Fiat large crossover engines would also come from Toro: in Brazil, for example, you can buy a pickup truck with the EtorQ 1.8 (135 hp on gasoline and 139 hp on ethanol) and Tigershark 2.4 (174/186 l.). pp.) with the MultiJet II 2.0 turbo diesel (170 hp). However, now the Brazilian media attributed the SUV to the two-liter Tigershark from the local version of the Jeep Compass – in the jeep, the petrol version gives 159 hp, the power of the engine running on ethanol is 166 hp Cross Fiat will certainly offer both front and all-wheel drive.
The release of the new SUV will be adjusted in Brazil or Argentina, the appearance of a model outside of Latin America is still in question. Meanwhile, in June, Fiat announced two more new crossovers for this region – A-and B-classes. But there are no details about compact SUVs yet.
Other brands have previously announced their novelties for the exhibition in São Paulo. For example, Volkswagen will show a pickup the size of a Tiguan at the motor show, Hyundai will bring a compact cross Saga and a luxury version of Creta to the motor show, and Chevrolet will present the 300-hp Cruze hatchback.
