South America: Fiat Cronos sedan – Linea replacement teased


Fiat has released a new teaser video of its upcoming mid-size sedan that is set to replace the Linea. The Fiat Cronos shares its platform with the Argo hatchback which is currently sold in the South American markets.

The latest teaser video doesn’t reveal much apart from the silhouette of the Cronos other than giving a glimpse of its three-box side profile. The front fascia is likely to be carried over from the hatchback with minor revisions. The teaser video suggests that the Cronos would get wraparound headlights with LED DRLs and LED tail lights as well. Fiat hasn’t revealed the interior of the Cronos however, it might get the same basic dashboard layout as the Argo hatchback.

The Fiat Cronos is likely to get the same range of engines as the Argo, except for the 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine. In addition to the 1.0-litre unit, the Argo is offered with a 108 BHP 1.3-litre engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission and a 1.8-litre flex-fuel engine which produces 137 BHP and is available with an optional 6-speed automatic gearbox.

The Fiat Cronos is touted to replace the Linea in the mid-size sedan segment, however Fiat hasn’t made any announcement confirming the Cronos for India.
