Fiat planning resurrection of the Topolino

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Rumors of a resurrection of the Topolino brand has been going around for almost a year now, and this April Fiat made a bold move toward the process of creating the latest B-segment vehicle by purchasing a former Zastava plant in Serbia, and at present the latest data show that the most current vehicle will be aiming at newcomers like the Volkswagen Up! and Toyota iQ.

A series of diminutives are anticipated to be produced under the Topolino flag, beginning with a compact two-seater that imitates the design of the original.

It is anticipated that a four-seater will follow, together with the possibility of an up-market first-class version, although that vehicle would be sold as a Lancia.

The typical engine for the Topolino is anticipated to be a two-cylinder 900cc, although the 1.3-liter outfitted in the Fiat 500 will be offered as an uprate.

The dimensions of the four-seater are predicted to measure less than 3.15m in length, being patterned on the platform of a shortened variant of the award-winning Fiat 500.

It is reported by Auto Motor & Sport that a possible appearance for the latest vehicle is captured in a rendering by Mark Stehrenberg. [source]
