First images (teaser?) of the Fiat Viaggio have surfaced online ahead of its debut at Auto China in Beijing later this month.
Essentially a restyled Dodge Dart, the front end is differentiated from the Dart with a new front fascia and grille while the rear end gets re-shaped tailamps and redesigned luggage lid reflectors. For a more elegant look, chrome trim is found around the grille, fog lamps, window reveal moldings and luggage lid.
According to Autoblog.rs, powertrains will include Fiat's 1.4-liter T-Jet engine in two outputs: 120 hp / 155 lb-ft of torque and 150 hp / 170 lb-ft. The same turbocharged engine in MultiAir configuration will producer 160 hp / 184 lb-ft - same as in the Dodge Dart. However, the Viaggio will receive a six-speed dual-clutch transmission which is not available in the Dart.
Previous reports suggested Fiat-Guangzhou Auto will build the Viaggio as a hatchback version, but the sedan will be offered first later this year. Then it could be exported to Europe as a Bravo replacement.
