Article by Christian Andrei, on May 22, 2015

Fiat recently unveiled at the 2015 Istanbul Motor Show its new Aegea Project sedan, a vehicle designed in Italy at the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles Centro Stile and developed in Turkey together with Tofas R&D. As we said, the new vehicle is known as the Aegea Project, in recognition of the strategic importance of the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles’ Turkish operation.

According to FIAT, this is no hatchback with a boot, it is a completely new three-volume sedan featuring a beautiful design with elegant swage line that flows beautifully from the corners of the headlamps to the leading edge of the rear light clusters.

The first visual impact with the vehicle shows a sculpted bonnet, with central ribbing stretching across the roof that creates a continuous line, while the grille with intercalated chrome-effect accents form an unmistakable graphic pattern.

Moreover, the swept-back headlamp clusters complete the Italian style of the Aegea Project sedan. The rear end shows stylish taillamps as well as a trunk with sexy design lines.

The interior was built to the highest standards and features the latest technologies such as the Uconnect infotainment system fitted with a 5-inch colour touchscreen, hands-free Bluetooth, calling with audio streaming, SMS text reader, voice recognition, AUX and USB ports with iPod integration, steering wheel controls, TomTom satellite navigation and a rear parking camera.

According to FIAT, the Aegea Project sedan has a length of 4.5 meters, a 1.78 meters width and 1.48 meters in height, with a wheelbase of 2.64 meters. Designed to accommodate up to five passengers, the sedan will offer a load capacity of over 510 liters.

When it comes to engines, FIAT will offer two MultiJet II turbo-diesel engines and two petrol units with power outputs of between 95 and 120 hp. The engines will be available with manual or automatic transmission and the fuel-efficient diesel engines will offer a fuel consumption of 70 mpg or 4 l/100 km. [source: FIAT]
