Fiat Progetto 363 SUV for Brazil breaks cover

Fiat's new crossover could be called Tuo, Dumo or Pulse.

Fiat has taken the wraps off a new crossover, codenamed Progetto 363. It will go on sale in South American markets later this year.

Fiat Brazil has shortlisted three names for the model. These include Tuo, Dumo and Pulse. The company is conducting an online poll that will decide the official name of the car.

The styling of the Progetto 363 is inspired by the Strada four-door pick-up. It features an upright front fascia with a large FIAT logo in the centre. The grille is flanked by sleek wraparound LED headlamps. The rear of the car reminds us of the Audi Q3. It has a similarly shaped rear hatch. The SUV gets black cladding around the wheel arches and dual exhausts.

The Progetto 363 shares its platform with the Fiat Argo. It will be offered with a 126 BHP 1.0-litre, direct-injection turbo-petrol engine, alongside a 1.3-litre turbo-petrol unit and a 1.3-litre naturally aspirated motor.
