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.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

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.
