Fiat 500 estate to be revealed by the end of 2011
The Fiat Group must have some serious amounts of caffeine in their coffee! Either that or their new partnership with Chrysler was the kind fire they needed to light their calzones. Fiat Group plans to unveil 34 new models across each of its brands until 2014. The new models will include a BMW M5-rivaling Maserati, a new Alfa Spider, and the next Ferrari Enzo. There will also be two new versions for the Fiat 500: a three-door Giardiniera estate and a four-door hatch called the Lungo. Both models will be unveiled in 2011.
The four-door version will compete with models like the Vauxhall Meriva, while the Giardiniera will take on the MINI’s funky flair. Specifically, Fiat will try to compete with the likes of the Mini Clubman. These two models come with more luggage space and more interior room so the fact that they will be offered in the U.S. is not a complete shocker.
Fiat’s future plans will also include a facelift version for the 500 and 500C for 2012, an all-new Uno city car for 2013, a new Panda for 2011, and a new Punto Evo for 2013.
Yeah, talk about a boom in production. Is it weird that we are strangely excited about the models coming to the U.S.?
