Fiat Fastback Revealed As Automakers First Coupe SUV

Author: |

Fiat has released the first images of the Fastback, which is the company's first entry into the coupe-SUV market. The Fiat Fastback is a development of the corresponding 2018 concept. Additionally, it and the Fiat Pulse have the same MLA architecture. South American markets like Brazil and Argentina are the target markets for both Fastback and the Pulse.

The LED headlights, grille, bonnet, front fenders, front doors, and the front bumper that is taken from the Pulse Abarth appear to be among the Fastback's many carryover components from the Pulse. Following the fashion of coupe-SUVs, the rear windshield has a steep inclination and the tailgate has an incorporated spoiler. With the tail being entirely reworked to create a more aerodynamic appearance, there are fewer similarities between the Pulse and the Fastback in the back. Compared to the Pulse, the rear overhang is longer, and the rear bumper incorporates a diffuser and false exhaust trim.

Additionally, it comes with a pair of five-spoke diamond-finished alloy wheels that appear to be relatively modest in diameter, however, we imagine that this varies depending on the trim option.

Although the corporation didn't provide internal photos, we believe they will be shared with Pulse, which is a mechanical publication. It will probably take after the 10.1-inch infotainment touchscreen and 7-inch digital instrument cluster from the Pulse, as we have seen.

According to local media, the Fastback will have a 1.0-liter turbocharged engine with 128 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque. The car might also be available with a 1.3-liter naturally aspirated engine that generates 106 horsepower and 134 Nm of torque. On the Pulse, both engines are already available, and the front axle can be driven by a manual or an automated CVT transmission. We shouldn't anticipate the Fastback to have any off-road ability because of the lack of a 4WD system.

South America is anticipated to host the model's market debut. Whether Fiat intends to export the Fastback to additional markets throughout the world is unknown.
