Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Will replace the discontinued Fiat Uno FIRE.

Autoblog Argentina reports that the Fiat X1H will adopt the name Fiat “Mobi”, when it goes on sale from the first half of 2016. It will serve as Fiat’s entry-level hatchback in the South American market, thus replacing the Fiat Uno FIRE.

The Fiat Mobi is expected to go on sale from the first half of 2016.

Reports suggest that it will source the 1.0-litre engine from the Fiat Palio FIRE, which is capable of 73 bhp with regular petrol and 75 bhp on ethanol, at 6,250 rpm, and mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. A 12-valve turbocharged version of the same engine is also considered, reportedly. Both variants of the engine are rumored to feature a stop-start system for lower CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy.

The front part of the Mobi’s platform is sourced from the Fiat Uno, while the rear section is, reportedly, developed from scratch. Fiat has put focus on reinforcing the chassis for better crash test results, say reports. It will also source windshields, roof stamping and front doors from the Fiat Uno.
