Fiat Mobi caught testing on video – Spied
I’m the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Will go on sale in April 2016.
The Fiat Uno replacement that was confirmed last month to be named the ‘Fiat Mobi’ has been spied testing by Autos Segredos reader Eider Silva in Brazil. The spy video also shows the Fiat Mobi being tested along with its rumoured adventure version ‘Fiat Mobi Way’.
According to the Brazilian publication’s report, the Fiat Mobi will be launched in April and be available in three grades: Easy, Like and Drive, while the Fiat Way will be launched by June this year featuring heightened suspension, roof rails, 14-inch wheels and fender cladding.
A spy shot that surfaced last month showed that the Fiat Mobi’s interior features a simplistic 3-spoke steering wheel, a small vertical display in the instrument cluster, vertical HVAC vents in the middle and circular HVAC vents on the sides. That was a test mule though, the production version may be offered with more features like steering-mounted controls and an audio/infotainment system.
Fiat hasn’t said anything about the car, but reports claim that the front part of the Fiat Mobi’s chassis is from the Uno, while the rear is newly developed. The windshields, roof stamping and front doors are also borrowed from the latter.
Powering the Fiat Mobi would be a 1.0-litre engine that produces 73 bhp (petrol)/75 bhp (ethanol) and drives the front wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission.
