2017 Fiat Qubo/Fiorino Spotted; Is It Coming To The US As A RAM?

Being on the market since 2008, it’s time for Fiat’s compact people carrier and its commercial variant to get a facelift.

The Qubo/Fiorino duo was scooped during cold weather testing in Sweden. Although the prototypes were camouflaged, it’s evident that the bulk of the changes will concern the front end.

From what we can tell, the new model will sport a redesigned grille, front bumper and head lights in a way that reminds the bigger Doblo, which was also revamped last year.

Based on the Grande Punto platform and built at Fiat’s plant in Bursa, Turkey, the pair will reportedly get a new generation of engines that comply with Euro 6 emission standards.

With the Doblo having set a precedent of being sold in North America rebadged as the RAM Promaster City, rumor has it that FCA is considering doing the same with the Qubo and Fiorino.

While the models sold in Europe and South America are expected at the Geneva Auto Show, we’ll have to wait and see if the conglomerate decides it should make it over to the US and Canada.
