Fiat unveils the first images of its Fastback coupe SUV

It could have become the Renault Arkana’s rival in France, but it is not marketed in our regions. The Fiat Fastback is officially unveiled today by Fiat in South America.

It’s been a long time since we had a real novelty at Fiat. In fact, if we exclude restylings and “cross” variants, the last one is nothing more than… the 124. An eternity then, but Fiat is still active with a catalog revolving around the declension of 500, and in particular its electric version that sells well in Europe. But the Fiat Group is not only present on the old continent, it is also present in South America, where we recently discovered a sporty pseudo with the Abarth Pulse. And today the Italian manufacturer unveils the first images of the Fastback, its very first coupe SUV that probably would have had its place with us given the recent rise of this segment among generalists: Peugeot 408 and more specifically Renault Arkana. .even Volkswagen Taigo.

Presented in a two-tone version, the Fastback picks up on the usual codes of the category with tapered taillights, a “duck tail” appearance, a particularly aggressive diffuser and a bold grille. Together with the LED look and the large rims, you have the complete package of the modern SUVwith a sporty look that tries to imitate the highest quality premium models that have established this previously non-existent segment: Mercedes GLE Coupé, Audi Q8, BMW X6 and even Range Rover Velar.

The interior remains a well-kept secret, albeit for obvious cost reasons it should approximate that of the pulse.

It would be the South American model that would have required the most investment for Fiat, which the mechanics under the hood have not yet confirmed, although logically we should find Fiat’s turbocharged blocks and in particular the 1.3 in the 130 and 185 hp versions. In terms of marketing in Europe, it’s not completely ruled out, but Fiat seems to be prioritizing Brazil and Argentina for the moment. And this fastback will likely need a mechanical overhaul to meet our environmental standards.
