New Uno incarnation will come available with two Flex Fuel engines - a 1.0-liter with 75 bhp (56 kW) and a 1.4-liter unit with 85 bhp (63 kW).

Fiat has revived the Uno nameplate for a new model headed for markets in South America.

The original Uno was the predecessor to the current Punto and was produced in Italy from 1983 to 1995. But the model remained in production in other markets and was especially popular in Brazil.

The new Uno is a different model altogether, as these photos show. Its stylistic theme is less urban minicar and more compact, practical people-mover with a little boxy design flair thrown in too.

The new Uno measures 3,770 mm long, 1,643 mm wide and 1,490 mm high - with a 2,370 mm wheelbase. That puts it between the Panda and Grande Punto in terms of size. The car will be produced at Fiat's Betim plant in Brazil.

Given that its main market will be Brazil, the Uno will come with two Flex Fuel ethanol/gasoline engines - a 1.0-liter with 75 bhp (56 kW) and a 1.4-liter unit with 85 bhp (63 kW). Both engines will come with a 5-speed manual transmission. An SUV-styled variant called the "Way" will also be available, though not as an all-wheel drive.
