Fiat mulls 500 MPV

2010-04-19 07:59
Fiat has plans to release a four-door version of its 500 in Europe by the end of 2011.

According to Automotive News, the car will have a high roofline and a rear hatch that will allow it to be classified as a small MPV in Europe to compete alongside vehicles such as Opel’s Meriva.

The vehicle will be built at Fiat’s Turin plant on a platform that is longer and wider than the one currently used for 500.

The larger 500 will be the fourth model in the range, following the two-door, convertible (launched in South Africa in March) and the Abarth performance model.

The local 500 range was recently subjected to a few changes, including price adjustments and the trimming of specification.
