Fiat Viaggio Announced


Fiat released teasers of a new model to be unveiled at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, based on the Dodge Dart, which itself is based on an Alfa Romeo.

Viaggio (voyage in English and its Chinese name Fei Xiang meaning flying) is the first Fiat-Chrysler twin project which brings to life an all-new world class vehicle with high levels of refinement and craftsmanship that breaks the mould in China’s compact sedan segment. At 4,679mm in length, 1,850mm in overall width and with a 2,708mm wheelbase, the Viaggio is the new C-segment benchmark. Based on the images, it should also look good.

Fiat has not announced yet if the Viaggio actually makes it overseas in markets other than China. We don’t see why it shouldn’t.

Details in Fiat press release:

The Fiat Viaggio will be the only car in its segment to exclusively offer sophisticated turbocharged engines; the 1.4l T-Jet in both 120 hp and 150 hp outputs matched to either a 5-speed manual transmission or the latest Dual Dry Clutch Transmission (DDTC) developed by Fiat Powertrain.

Designed by the Fiat Group Style Centre in Torino, the Viaggio has a timeless, clean-surfaced expressive exterior design that blends fluid and curvaceous forms with strong proportions. A contemporary Fiat ‘face’ ensures unmistakable brand identity.  Rear tail lamps with refined LED lights deliver an image of superior quality.

The new Fiat sedan will be the first car to be produced in the new GAC-Fiat World Class Manufacturing plant in Changsha, Hunan province. The first cars will be produced from July and will go on sale in the third quarter of this year.
