A prototype for the 2016 Fiat Strada - or a variant of it - has been spied undergoing testing in Germany.

A prototype for the 2016 Fiat Strada - or a variant of it - has been spied undergoing testing in Germany.

Dressed in heavily camouflage, the model appears to have an evolutionary front fascia with a familiar grille that is flanked by new headlights. Additional styling details are hard to make out but we can see door-mounted mirrors, an upward sweeping shoulder line and vertical taillights.

Little else is known about the model but Fiat's five year plan called for the company to launch a new compact pickup in Latin America in 2015. The model was absent from Ram's five year plan but the company recently launched a rebadged Strada in Mexico as the Ram 700.
