Thus was born an imposing, authentic vehicle, with the classic design characteristic of Fiat. To achieve this, it combined the higher driving position and the exterior volume typical of SUVs with interior comfort and a very generous trunk.

In addition, the performance of a coupe was added to this mix. This achieved a fluid, agile, imposing and seductive design. His muscles are also a point to highlight.
