Here’s the handsome Fiat Viaggio in its full glory, unveiled at the recent Beijing show. The C-segment sedan is based on the CUSW (Compact US Wide) architecture, the most advanced within the Fiat Group now. Also underpinning the new Dodge Dart, the CUSW platform is derived from the one beneath the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
Described as a “premium class” sedan, the Viaggio will be the only car in its segment to offer exclusively modern turbo engines (1.4L T-Jet 120 hp and 150 hp) in the Chinese market. Two gearbox options are available – Fiat’s latest generation six-speed (dry) dual-clutch transmission and a five-speed manual.
As the first Fiat-Chrysler joint project, the Fiat Viaggio will be produced in the new GAC Fiat production plant in Changsha, Hunan province.
A really handsome sedan to these eyes. Style comes naturally to the Italians, it is true! Click here for a look at the Dodge Dart.
