Replaces the Fiat Uno Vivace.
New spyshots of a Fiat Mobi Way photographed in what appears to be a stockyard has emerged online, courtesy of Autos Segredos. The pseudo crossover is expected to launch alongside the regular Fiat Mobi in the country on April 18.
The Mobi Way features an all new design that looks utilitarian but modern. It gets large headlamps and taillamps, small four spoke alloy wheels, dual slat grille, roof rails and a dark silver skid plate. Reports suggest that it will source windshields, roof stamping and front doors from the Fiat Uno, and that the wheelbase is reported to be around 2.35 meters.
The front section of the Mobi’s platform is sourced from the Fiat Uno, while the rear section is, reportedly, developed from scratch. On the safety front, Fiat has put focus on reinforcing the chassis for better crash test results.
The only engine option at launch is a 1.0-litre engine that produces 73 bhp (petrol)/75 bhp (ethanol) that is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. A new 1.0-liter three cylinder GSE (Global Small Engine) with start-stop technology will come in 2017, state several Brazilian reports.
At launch, prices are expected to start from BRL 29,000 (INR 5.31 lakhs), and will be available in three grades: Easy, Like and Drive. The Mobi Way crossover could start from BRL 40,000 (INR 7.33 lakhs).
