Fiat has officially introduced the new generation of its Uno supermini in South America. The Italian automaker released a barrage of photos and initial specs on the spiritual successor of the original Uno that will first go on sale in Brazil this month, with other South American countries to follow suit in the second half of the year.
Measuring 3,770mm in length, 1,643mm in width and 1,490mm in height with a wheelbase length of 2,370mm (boot capacity stands at 280 liters), the new Uno fits (dimension-wise) between the Panda and the Punto EVO.
In some ways, it's exterior styling bears a passing resemblance to the smaller Panda, albeit in a larger package and with its own unique detailing. The interior design is more simple and less stylish than in other Fiat products - at least compared to the ones sold in Europe.
In typical Fiat fashion, the new Uno will be come in plenty of flavors including a pseudo-SUV version called "Way" that features a higher road clearance and rugged looks.
Depending on the market, the new Uno will be offered with a choice of two new flex-fuel petrol engines, a 1.0-liter unit producing 73HP when running on alcohol and 75HP on gasoline, and a 1.4-liter unit delivering a maximum output of 88HP on alcohol and 85HP on gasoline.
Both engines are hooked up to a five-speed manual gearbox that drives the front wheels.
