The Fiat Toro is making an early unofficial debut courtesy of a few images straight from the assembly line.

The pics were taken at the Pernambuco factory in Brazil and show the new Fiat utility vehicle with a fairly attractive design, but what makes it stand out is the rear split opening in the same vein as the Lincoln Blackwood. The opening mechanism is hiding underneath that massive Fiat logo which is actually one of the biggest we have ever seen.

The white example is a cheaper version as it lacks fog lamps, the metal-like underbody protection and also doesn't have the metallic accents featured on the green unit. As far as the underpinnings are concerned, local media reports the Fiat Toro is based on the Jeep Renegade and will be offered with a 138 bhp 1.8-liter and a 170 bhp 2.0-liter diesel teamed up to a manual gearbox and several automatics sending power to the front wheels, but an AWD version will be available as well.

Fiat has already started the teasing game which means a full reveal is right around the corner, ahead of the Toro's market launch confirmed for next year when it will have to compete directly with the recently introduced Renault Duster Oroch.
