2023 Fiat Fastback SUV Coupe

Now part of Stellantis, Fiat, has been absent in Indian automotive segment as it was plagued with low sales numbers. The Italian legacy brand had compelling products like Punto Evo, Urban Cross, and Linea Classic offered in India towards its endgame. Apart from mainstream cars, Fiat had also offered performance-oriented and enthusiast Abarth lineup in India too.

Even though Fiat should’ve launched more vehicles like Tipo and Panda in the country, we are to blame as well. We just didn’t buy enough of Fiat products. But Fiat is very active in South America and has revealed a new vehicle based on its popular Pulse.

Love it, or hate it. Coupe SUVs are springing up like clockwork. The first modern-age Coupe SUV is generally considered to be BMW’s X6. It was just an X5 with a sloping roofline and was sold at a higher price with less boot capacity. Soon more manufacturers followed and once a luxury segment, Coupe SUVs are now being embraced by mainstream manufacturers too.

Now, Fiat has also jumped on the bandwagon and has revealed the Fastback in Brazil. Fastback looks like it is a coupe version of Pulse crossover SUV that is on sale in Brazil and recently got an Abarth version. It is a production version of Fastback Coupe SUV concept that was displayed at Sao Paulo Motor Show 2018. Fiat has toned down a lot from the concept when developing production version of Fastback.

Favouring practicality, production version gets 4-doors instead of two on its concept. Fiat Fastback is based on company’s MLA platform which also underpins Pulse. This MLA platform is a modified version of MP1 platform that underpins Argos and Cronos. Fiat hasn’t yet revealed any specs pertaining to dimensions and powertrains. It is likely to be the same size as Pulse and get the same set of powertrains too.

Fastback gets the same front fascia as Pulse’ with a bold FIAT logo, handsome LED headlights, fog lamps and DRLs. It gets power creases on the bonnet for added muscle. Black body cladding is offered that reduces visual bulk and gives it an SUV appeal.

Rear gets changes over Pulse. It gets wider and sleeker LED taillights, a sporty bumper with fake exhaust tips and a fake diffuser. Fiat Fastback gets blacked-out roof and shark fin antenna. It also gets different wheels over Pulse and a sloping roofline.
