Fiat Cronos Highlights
With the clear intention to replace Fiat Lian in Indian as well in international market, Fiat Cronos was unveiled as new sedan based on the Agro which succeeded the Fiat Punto EVO unlike the current Linea-Punto duo. They shared the same platform but look significantly different, the Cronos looks identical to the Argo. Fiat intended to contemplate to refresh its line up in India by 2019. Prior to that the company focused on the Jeep brand. Fiat as a brand is know for making existing cars. Whenever the company plans to launch Cronos in India, the sedan may range between Rs 8 lakhs to Rs 14 Lakhs. It will compete with well-known and established sedans like Honda City, Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna. Expected to be available in two engines, the first one is likely to be 1.3-litre firefly producing 101bhp at 6,000 rpm and 1.8-litre E.torQ flex-fuel engine will be another option. The company have not yet launched these in India so far and there is no certainty if Fiat is planning to get any new vehicles to India anytime soon. The front looks are expected to similar to the Argo, but it should get some different treatment. The front grille is a new one and it has a fine mesh and a chrome strip running in the middle which differentiate it from others making it look more premium and plusher. It gets a fine headlamp design with daytime running LEDs making it look bright all the time. The side profile looks smart and well-proportioned. It will be offered with a host of features like UConnect and similar features to the Argo. Italians are expert in designing a vehicle and Fiat is a good example of that.
