Published on April 10, 2013 by Tycho de Feijter
Fiat seems to be working on a wagon-version of the Fiat Viaggio sedan, which is basically the same car as the American Dodge Dart. A drawing that popped up on the Chinese interwebs, likely leaked from a Fiat-product presentation, shows a sleek looking wagon-like bodywork. Not for luggage, all for style, which might appeal very well to young ‘n hip Chinese car buyers.
At the same time, Fiat is also working on a hatchback version of the Fiat Viaggio. The hatchback will be positioned under the sedan, and the wagon will positioned above the sedan. All we need more is a coupe-cabriolet…
Renderings of the hatchback. When it all will be launched on the Chinese car market is yet unsure, but the hatchback is expected to debut, likely as a semi-concept, on the Shanghai Auto Show later this month.
