Update May 10, 2023
So it’s official, the next Fiat SUV will revive the name 600, forgotten since the 1970s. the platform of our Spanish colleagues from Cheaper. On his muzzle, you can clearly see the sequence of numbers that make up his name. Come on, let’s take a closer look at all of this together.
Between the Fiat 500X, the electric 500 and the Multipla 600
Want to be surprised? You will be disappointed. Check out the general look of the still-in-list fuel Fiat 500X, add some styling cues specific to the zero-emission version of the 500 (such as its round headlights cut into two parts, the first on the front bumper, the other on the hood. , or its Fiat logo visible on the tailgate but not the front) and you get about the style recipe for this new car.
However, it has some merits. The small line that comes in the extension of the front lights gives the impression that she applied mascara to have XXL eyelashes. Another thing, if the rear gate of the 500X was not quite straight, the one of the 600 is no longer restored, more straight, more in the spirit of the Multipla 600 launched in the 1950s which takes the name. Always back, it brings back the perfect lights inspired by the 500 electric ones. Finally, between the high body line and the less prominent side glazing, this 600 is also more powerful, more powerful than its hot brother. Not too much either, the 600 still looking cheerful.
In one of the pictures, you can see the dashboard of this future model, on the driver’s side. If the round hood is special to it, there are features that remind it of its technical cousin from Jeep and the current car of the year 2023, Avenger. Note that it uses a central touchscreen located in the same location, above the center console, as well as the same steering wheel. The Stellantis group’s approach to creating economies of scale.
A 4th of July presentation?
It should recover the Jeep platform, engine and battery and be produced alongside it in Poland, at the Tichy plant. According to rumors, a third model should be assembled on site and this should bear the Alfa Romeo badge. It will continue. Returning to the 600, we therefore expect to find a 156 hp electric motor and a 54 kWh battery for a combined autonomy that can reach 400 km on the WLTP cycle. It remains to be seen if it will also be offered with hot engines, which is also the case for the Avenger but not in our market. The official presentation can take place on July 4, the day of the 66th anniversary of the Fiat 500, which will be, like the 500X, its SUV counterpart.
