The report states that production of the Fiat X1H will begin in January 2016.

The Fiat X1H will slot below the Fiat Uno, and has a shorter front end that likely accommodates the 1.0-litre engine from the Fiat Palio Fire. This engine churns out 73 bhp of maximum power on petrol and 75 bhp on ethanol, at 6,250 rpm, and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.

The upcoming A segment hatch was expected to debut a 1.0-litre three-cylinder six-valve engine, but reports suggest that this engine is still under development and will not be ready by the time the X1H arrives in the market.

The Fiat X1H gets an all-glass tailgate similar to the VW Up! and Honda Brio.

In addition, a 12-valve turbocharged version of the 1.0-litre four-cylinder motor is expected to be offered, as per Brazilian reports. Both variants of the engine are rumored to feature a stop-start system for lower CO2 emissions and improved fuel economy.
