Default Fiat SUV based on Argo platform for Brazil in 2021

This news could be of interest to only hardcore Fiat fans, and is now specific to Brazil.

FCA is clear in its strategy of promoting JEEP brand, but in Latin America FIAT brand will co-exist with competing products from both brands.

FIAT has shown a prototype ( clay model) of its SUV based on ARGO shown in the design center of the brand in Betim, MG .
This is in addition to the earlier crossover shown based on TORO.

Quote:
The Argo SUV will be produced in Betim, along with the Toro SUV, and use the MP1 platform of the Argo, but with structural changes.

The model should reach the market at 2021, with prices competing Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks and the Jeep Renegade.

Engines used will likely be the 1.3 Firefly 109 CV, the new 1.0 Firefly turbo of 120 hp.

FCA Design Center Unveils Fiat Compact SUV Proposal in all colours.

Fiat SUV based on Argo platform for Brazil in 2021-2.jpg

Quote:
The project has already been confirmed and is part of a trio of products that will arrive from 2020 aboard the successor of the Strada pickup, which will have a double cab and everything. The other proposal will come in the form of a seven-seater SUV to fill Freemont's seat. But Fiat Fastback, even in the closest-to-reality style mockup, will not come.
Quote:
Visual reproduction shows a compact SUV with very current lines. There is nothing futuristic about the models, which feature front inspired by Argo / Cronos and Toro. As you can see from official Fiat photos, the crossover looks quite small in its proportions, indicating one thing, it will probably not be the same size as Renegade.
Quote:
So we can think of two sizes: 4.00 m or more than 4.30 m.

Fiat compact SUV spied on tests, market launch in 2021 ( For Brazil)

Quote:
Based on Fiat's MP1 platform, the sports utility takes advantage of argo's base to offer a good internal space and more generous trunks than jeep renegade', as its proposal will be more familiar.
Quote:
Fully camouflaged, like the Jeep unit, Fiat's future SUV will have a compact size, probably over 4 meters, since there is no restriction on the product in markets like India, as the brand has already left.

FIAT's SUV spied again.

The SUV will be built from the MP1 platform used by Argo, but with modifications to stay safer. The premiere is scheduled for August 2021.

Quote:
The rear suspension of the Fiat SUV will be the same as the Argo, including the attachment points will be identical. The front, will be exclusive to Project 363 due to the new front structure

Quote:
One of the engines already confirmed for fiat SUV (Project 363) is the 1.0 Turbo Firefly that will be connected to the CVT gearbox. The three-cylinder turbo propellant will have power in the 130 hp and estimated torque between 17 and 19 kgfm, remembering that with the turbo , the engine will have 12 valves. In the case of the turbo engine, the transmission will always be automatic type CVT.

In more accessible versions, the compact SUV will feature the 1.3 Firefly engine connected to manual and CVT gears.

In Europe, Coupe based Cuv's are in the rise.

After VW's Nivus which is based on Polo, Fiat's CUV that will emerge (Project 363) will be directly derived from the Argo.

To make the Argo SUV taller and look robust, Fiat will equip the model with 16-inch wheels paved with 195/60 R16 measuring tires.

The front will be exclusive to Project 363 because of the new front structure.

I'm not sure how tall this vehicle will turn out to be, but to me, it looks like a cross version of a hatchback ... a bit like Etios Cross or Tiago NRG.

Not really an SUV.

Fiat's 2021 SUV coming in turbo variants and will rival Jeep Renegade, Hyundai Creta, Nissan Kicks and Ford's EcoSport.

Quote:
With 4.10 meters long, 1.54 m high and 1.76 m wide, the 363 will be 10 cm longer, 4 cm taller and 3.6 cm wider than the Argo, a car that will lend you 95% of the platform, besides, of course, the wheelbase that there are no measurements but will be larger than the hatch
Quote:
Under the hood, the car will bring only two engine options. The 1.3 Firefly, 109 hp and 14.2 kgfm (with ethanol), will be in the input version, which should have as novelty an automatic cvt exchange, instead of the six-speed Aisin used in The Toro and Renegade 1.8
Quote:
the CVT exchange is more expensive than a conventional torque converter, but the efficiency gain is above the order so that the price of this car does not come close to the values practiced for the Renegade
Link

Quote:
the more equipped options, the SUV will come with the new Firefly T3 1.0 engine — built-in code for turboprop —, tricilinear, with variable dual control and estimated maximum power between 120 hp and 125 hp, depending on fuel. The new turbo engines will have gearshift

Fiat has revealed its 'project 363 SUV' with official images, but has yet to reveal its name.

Quote:
Regarding the official name, the brand announced that it will conduct an online poll to select between the names Fiat Tuo, Fiat Domo and Fiat Pulse
Quote:
inaugurates an unprecedented vehicular platform called MLA.
Quote:
The Fiat Progetto 363 will debut the GSE T3 engine, a 1.0 turbo charged with three cylinder and 12V.
Quote:
This new platform, which increases the levels of performance, robustness and comfort, will further increase the safety results of the new products and is ready to receive exclusive mechanical components, such as a new 1.0 turbo flex engine, with approximately 125 hp, associated with automatic 6-speed torque converter transmission, as well as electronic equipment to support driving.
Quote:
The new 1.0, however, will not be the only option of the project, since the input models will have manual transmission of five gears and the same 1.3 aspirated 109 hp of Argo. Automatic transmission will be optional in these cases.
