Between the priest and the covers, the white 600 stands out. For the production of the first advertising videos of the new Fiat SUV, Rome was chosen and especially through della Conciliazione. And the car, unlike the red model photographed in Germany, is all white. And you can admire it from every angle, without hiding it. The 600 logo dominates the front of the car on the rounded bonnet. The coquettish front: it recalls the headlights of the 500. And the sides seem to stretch out, as if they have eyelashes. Even the rear, where the Fiat logo is in the middle, recalls the lines of the 500, especially the “extended” 500X, the model from which it seems to draw inspiration.
Will the flashy white car be electric? It is possible. The Fiat 600, which will be launched in 2023, was born on the Cmp mechanical platform, similar to the Jeep Avenger, which shares dimensions, engine and home: the Tychy plant in Poland. And it was born as a fully electric car, like the one that won the “European Car of the Year 2023” award. It has a length of more than 4 meters, a width of 1 meter and 77 centimeters and a height of 1 meter and a length of 52.
The new Fiat 600 will also have two souls, at least in Italy and maybe in other European countries, like Spain where the transition to electricity has not yet reached an acceptable level. The traditional model, for those who do not like plugging and charging the battery, will install the 1.2 Gse T3: a three-cylinder gasoline engine of 1.2 liters with a declared power of 100 HP, a mechanical gearbox and a front-wheel drive. .
The green variant will have the same system as the Avenger offered by e-Motors, a joint venture between Stellantis and Nidec. An engine that has a power of 115 kW, which is 156 HP and a maximum torque of 260 Nm. But it is the external shapes, not what will be found inside the bodywork, that attracts the attention of passers-by on the roadside. Tiber.
