Fiat Fastback. This is the name of a prototype that has just been introduced in the Sao Paulo Hall to improve what will be in the future version of the SUV of the current engine Toro.
It was one of the most impressive São Paulo show models, as this was a possible version of the Bulla body generates expectations in social networks for almost two years, but it is very close to becoming a reality.
Peter Fassbender, head of the FCA study for Latin America, told TN Autos that it was a project exercise that is "evolution from the line of bulls", Convinced that it would not be manufactured as such, but suggested that it could stimulate the future model.
If the final version adopts the features of this prototype, it will be more SUV type "coupé", and its most controversial rival will be Renault Arkana, a model of this kind that will be produced in Brazil by 2020 modified version of B0 architecture, which are currently used in Duster and Captur models.
The model of the SUV with the silhouette of the coupe was created thanks to the BMW X6, the pioneer of sports aesthetics of the SUV. This is a solution that generally limits the space to the top of the rear seats, but it does more aggressive picture.
At the same time, the concept of Fastback could anticipate aesthetic changes that would be embedded in the front part of the first redesigned boot design Toro, launched on the 2016 regional market. For this update, at least for the time being, there is no confirmed date.
During the car show, the Italian brand sources recognized it can be produced in Brazil since 2020 with a platform already used by Jeep Renegade and Compass, and Fiat Toro. If this happens, it would not be unreasonable to imagine that, a few months later, his arrival in Argentina.
