The Renault Kwid rival replaces the obsolete Uno Vivace and co-exists with the Uno.
Fiat Brazil expects 35% of the sales to come from the top 2 variants – Way and Way On – which bring in a lot of visual and equipment upgrades.
35% of the sales is excepted to be accounted for by the Fiat Way variants.The Way models sport what is usually called as a rough road package. The highlights include crossover like elements such as black inserts on the bumpers, black lower body plastic cladding, flared wheel arches, roof rails, and alloy wheels.
The equipment list includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, fog lights, 14-inch alloy wheels, dual tone seat fabrics, multifunction steering wheel, audio system, electrically adjustable wing mirrors, security alarm, height adjustable driver seats, etc.
The crossover-like budget hatchback is powered by a 1.0-litre flex-fuel engine which is derived from the Uno Vivace. Paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, the motor pumps out 77 PS while running on ethanol. The hatchback will receive a brand new 1.0-litre unit in 2017.
The Mobi will rival the Kwid which is set to launch in Brazil in the coming months.The Fiat Mobi is priced between 31,900 reals (around INR 6.36 lakhs) and 43,800 reals (around INR 8.74 lakhs).
