Fiat would be developing a new SUV, but for now for America
The expansion that the segment is still experiencing> SUV's is being used by all manufacturers. Until now, Fiat was one of the least present, because the 500X can not cover the gap left by the Freemont. However, in the main markets of Latin America it is increasing its offer faster than in Europe .
The Fiat Toro is one of the products that is giving more satisfactions to the Italian firm. The pick up medium, has become a very demanded product in the region so in Fiat they are working to expand their family. For this, the FCA Latam Design Center , directed by Peter Fassbender, is preparing something for the next São Paulo International Motor Show in Brazil.
From this center design came the lines of the Fiat Argo , Cronoss and, of course, the Bull. For this reason, Fassbender is in charge of shaping the next Fiat model. Considering these data, and that in the region they need a high capacity road, it is not strange that the rumors have exploded. Therefore, now more than ever, the Fiat Toro SUV is taking positions in all the pools.
How would the hypothetical Fiat Toro SUV?
Considering the high success that all roads are taking coupe , it would not be unreasonable to see something similar. Renault has thrown into the pool with Arkana and BMW continues to reap successes with the X4 and X6. However, we must bear in mind that Fiat has been working on this project since 2016, and there is still nothing firm.
For your development >, the Italian brand engineers would pull the Jeep organ bank. As its production would be carried out in the Pernambuco plant (Brazil), the logistics costs would be minimal. In this center the Renegade and Compass are assembled for the region, so neither should the production lines be modified.
For now, the only data we have from the future SUV Fiat is a video that has hung the design center in your YouTube account. Further on, these are speculations, since it will be at the São Paulo International Motor Show where we will get to know the first prototype. In any case, we must bear in mind that this model, in the first place, is intended for this region, so in Europe we could run out of it.
