2020 Fiat Cronos HGT Is South America’s Economy Sedan With A Sporty Twist

Launched less than two years ago, the Fiat Cronos economy sedan has already sold more than 40,000 units in Brazil, its biggest market.

Now, the Cronos has received its first updates for the 2020 model year, chief of which is a new HGT sporty trim level. This range-topping grade is priced from R$78,490 (approximately $19,540) in Brazil and brings exclusive exterior and interior tweaks with a sporty theme. It also features more technology and standard features than any other Cronos trim level.

The Cronos HGT can be recognized thanks to the 17-inch black alloys, black deck lid spoiler and mirror caps, darkened front grille, body-colored door handles, and darkened Fiat logos.

Inside, the Fiat Cronos HGT comes equipped with black headliner and interior trim, a 7-inch instrument panel display, automatic air conditioning, special fabric for the seats, as well as darkened Fiat floor mats and logos on the steering wheel and key fob.

As options, customers can have a black roof, leather seats, rearview camera, side air bags, power folding rearview mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, electrochromic rearview mirror, and keyless entry and start.

The color palette consists of new colors such as Montecarlo Red and Silverstone Grey (metallic), in addition to the existing Vulcan Black, Banchisa White, Vesuvius Black, Bari Silver, Alaska White, and Marsala Red.

There are no modifications made to the 1.8-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine which is shared with the Argo hatchback. The unit delivers 132 PS (130 hp) and 182 Nm (134 lb-ft) of torque when running on gasoline and 139 PS (137 hp) and 189 Nm (139 lb-ft) of torque when fueled with ethanol.

The only transmission on offer is a six-speed automatic unit that enables the engine to deliver a reasonably sporty 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 9.9 seconds and a top speed of 192 km/h (119 mph) — for an economy sedan, at least.
