After the French crossover inspired the Datsun redi-GO for the Indian market, it's now time to talk about a vehicle aimed towards the same segment, coming straight from Brazil.

Produced by Fiat and wearing the Mobi moniker, the latest minicar has been priced from R$31,900, just $9,100 at the current exchange rates, for the Easy trim that is equipped with 13-inch wheels with hubcaps, body-colored bumpers, Emergency Stop Signal, Lane Change Warning and split rear seats.

Fiat also offers the Easy On, Like, Like On, Way and Way On guises, with the most expensive one featuring unique design 14-inch alloy wheels, flared fenders, bumper guards and roof rails, among others, all from R$43,800 ($12,500), and there are also 40 Mopar accessories to choose from.

Some of the goodies found on the Mobi include follow-me home headlights, electrically adjustable side mirrors, rearview camera, electric windows, air conditioning, trip computer, infotainment system with 6.2-inch display, navigation system, USB, AUX and multi-function steering wheel.

All variants use a 1.0-liter four-cylinder flex-fuel engine producing 77 HP when running on petrol or 75 HP on ethanol and 93 Nm/97 Nm (69/72 lb-ft) of torque respectively. Power is sent to the wheels through a standard 5-speed manual gearbox.
