This is the first spy shot of the upcoming new Fiat sedan, which is the first Fiat that will be build in cooperation with GAC (Guangzhou Automobile Group) and marks the full return on the Chinese market after it ended the Chinese production of the Nanjing-Fiat Palio, Siena and Perla. The Dodge Dart based sedan will be introduced at Auto China Beijing in April this year.

Re: FIAT Viaggio

Italy's largest carmaker Fiat (FIA.MI) opened its first plant in China on Thursday dedicated to producing vehicles for the local market, starting with its new Viaggio saloon car.

The plant, based in Hunan province, is the latest development in a 5 billion yuan ($786.73 million) joint-venture between Fiat and GAC, China's sixth largest auto manufacturer.

Fiat' chief executive Sergio Marchionne met with representatives of Hunan and Guandong provinces to unveil the 730,000 square-meter plant, which is to produce 140,000 Viaggios a year.

The move is important for Fiat, which also controls U.S. auto maker Chrysler, because both companies have been latecomers to the booming Chinese car market.

The Viaggio shares a platform with the Dodge Dart, a compact car being launched by Chrysler in the United States, as well as with Fiat's Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

I think Fiat sedan is simply amazing. It has so many newly features in it like two turbocharged petrol engines, twin-clutch auto. I loved this car and most of the persons plan to buy this one.

Viaggio is on Cusw (Compact US Wide). This is non the same that European Fiat 'C' platform (Fiat Bravo, Lancia Delta, Alfa Romeo Giulietta). They take it and added some cm in the middle: long and wide. I saw some photos with the difference in evidence. i'm searcing...

Re: FIAT Viaggio

From Italian Forum 'quattroruote':

Il pianale della Giulietta, il cosiddetto C Wide opportunamente allungato e allargato, è lo snodo per reggere l'assalto della concorrenza. Studiata a Torino e poi implementata nel Michigan, questa piattaforma farà da base a tutti i prodotti destinati alle varie aree del mondo. Sopra per cominciare vi si costruirà la Giulia, l'auto che dovrebbe finalmente vedere il ritorno dell'Alfa negli States, ma prima arriveranno una Dodge - a inizio 2012 - e quindi la Fiat post Croma, la Lancia Flavia-2 (o, se si preferisce, l'erede dell'attuale Chrylser 200). Sempre con la possibilità di introdurre soluzioni su misura come mai si era visto da noi in passato: con trazioni anteriori, posteriori e persino integrali. Harald Wester, capo dello sviluppo tecnico Fiat, dovrà garantire la qualità e flessibilità, ma in parallelo bisognerà lasciare un po' di briglia ai designer per avere delle automobili belle e stimolanti. In Italia la scuola non dovrebbe fare difetto...

Re: FIAT Viaggio

This is indeed a great sedan from Fiat. I also noticed few updates and changes in the car. It seems that Ford has worked a lot upon this car to give it a different look and comfort from other segment of cars. The car is undoubtedly great.
