New Fiat Uno Part II: Photo Gallery and Details of Italian Supermini

|

Fiat has officially introduced the new generation of its Uno supermini in South America. The Italian automaker released a barrage of photos and initial specs on the spiritual successor of the original Uno that will first go on sale in Brazil this month, with other South American countries to follow suit in the second half of the year.

There have been reports from Italy stating that Fiat plans to sell and produce the new Uno in Europe and Russia, but this has yet to be confirmed from official sources.

Measuring 3,770mm in length, 1,643mm in width and 1,490mm in height with a wheelbase length of 2,370mm (boot capacity stands at 280 liters), the new Uno fits (dimension-wise) between the Panda and the Punto EVO.

In some ways, it's exterior styling bears a passing resemblance to the smaller Panda, albeit in a larger package and with its own unique detailing. The interior design is more simple and less stylish than in other Fiat products - at least compared to the ones sold in Europe.

In typical Fiat fashion, the new Uno will be come in plenty of flavors including a pseudo-SUV version called "Way" that features a higher road clearance and rugged looks.

Depending on the market, the new Uno will be offered with a choice of two new flex-fuel petrol engines, a 1.0-liter unit producing 73HP when running on alcohol and 75HP on gasoline, and a 1.4-liter unit delivering a maximum output of 88HP on alcohol and 85HP on gasoline.

Both engines are hooked up to a five-speed manual gearbox that drives the front wheels.

Well, looks like any other Japanese supermini of the past decade - oh, wait, it´s Italian. So you don´t have to bother about quality-issues, because there won´t be any...

What a fantastically thought out post, all Fiat's are junk, yeah that's right, damn it you are clever;-)

This Uno looks like it'll be a great success, a real-world car that is both honest and durable

Well, it's not worse than a Sandero, and the Sandero has been very successful

"Junk
Like every crappy-made Fiat"

That was brilliant. Now where's that other all purpose Fiat descriptor used by flippant pin-heads... "Fix it again..."
Amazing how anything small and Fiat attracts cynics like flies. How about some perspective here? This isn't meant as a high-end vehicle; it's an inexpensive commuter. Weigh that in its favour at least and measure it against other vehicles in its class. Calling it crap means what? Mostly that you're not very intelligent.

1st comment.....STUPID
8th comment.....SUPIDer.

People in S America get Every single car there is in the world, every brand every type, maybe some brands many of you anonymous have not heard off.
AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS FREEDOM OF CHOICE.

And returning to FIAT:
Fiat Uno one of the most sold cars IN THE WORLD, you just dont selling a lot of "crap" because of luck or looks, through history the one has had unique caracteristics than make it unique a "UNO".

the majority of you people bitching have prob never seen, or sat in a modern Fiat. You have very strong opinions for people who basically know nothing. I have to laugh when i read these comments

The grille looks too much like that of the first-generation Panda. I'd say give it another grille and put this one on the Panda, for legacy reasons. Other than that, it's going to be A-OK, like the Panda it's based on.

O the one for india. seriously, fiat should have got uno to india instead of grande punto, which resembles a bull in a china shop

Hopefully spares wont be a problem like the 2007 uno in south africa-even the factory battles o yes forgot Fiat got their money

must agree that the design unmistakably belongs to a Junk class vehicle. Can't comment on why these cars or most Fiats as a matter of fact have good sales, but it seems that any other car made in Europe, Japan and even Korea is be better looking.

on a positive side - the medium format camera pictured on a passenger seat is probably more expensive than the car :D
