Following yesterday's leak, Fiat has released the first details about the 2013 Viaggio.

Set to debut at Beijing Motor Show, the Viaggio is a compact sedan that is based on the Dodge Dart. As such, it rides on the CUSW (Compact US Wide) platform and has a wheelbase that spans 2,708mm.

Despite its American roots, the model was designed in Torino and features a chrome grille, sweptback headlights and LED-infused taillights.

Power will be provided by a 1.4-liter T-Jet engine with outputs of 120 PS (88 kW / 118 hp) and 150 PS (110 kW / 148 hp). It can be connected to a five-speed manual or a dual-clutch transmission.

The Viaggio will be built at the company's assembly plant in Changsha and should arrive at Chinese dealerships in the third quarter of 2012.
