The fifth-gen Fiat Strada will be based on the second-gen Fiat Palio’s platform.

The Brazilian publication says that the next-gen Fiat Strada, known internally as ‘Fiat X6P’, will be “sister” of Fiat X6H (next-gen Fiat Punto) and Fiat X6S (Fiat Linea successor) projects – both expected to be completed by the second half of next year. Like the next-gen Fiat Punto and the Fiat Linea successor, the next-gen Fiat Strada will also be underpinned by a stretched and improved version of the second generation Fiat Palio’s platform. It will be manufactured in Betim in Brazil.
