Fiat Cronos for Americas
Fiat has revealed its all-new Cronos small sedan, which will initially launched in the American markets, including Brazil. It is expected to be launched in early 2018. The Cronos will be a rival to the paopular range of cars like Honda City, the Hyundai Verna and the soon-to-be-launched Polo-based VW Virtus.
The Cronos sedan and the hatchback will have the same headlight styling. The grille is completely different with a smaller mesh design and thicker surrounds. Also, the front bumper is unique to the sedan with a wider air intake design and high-set fog lamp housings.
The sedan tail-lamps are long wraparound with LED inserts. The trunk has a stylish design touch, which looks like an integrated rear spoiler. The rear bumper is large and comes with a black plastic insert. Fiat says the Cronos sedan will have more boot space than one of its direct rivals, the recently revealed Volkswagen Virtus sedan.
The Cronos comes with a 109hp, 1.3-litre petrol and a 139hp, 1.8-litre flex-fuel engine, with the former being mated to a five-speed manual and the latter also getting the option of a six-speed automatic transmission.
