The four-door, five-seat Viaggio will be the first model to built in a new plant in China as part of a joint venture between GAC and Fiat.
Changes over the Dart are minimal, and focus on giving the new Italian-designed Fiat its own distinct front and rear end designs. Both cars are based on Fiat’s Compact US Wide architecture.
The Viaggio will be offered with a turbocharged 1.4-litre Tjet engine with either 118bhp or 148bhp. Buyers can choose from either a conventional five-speed auto’ gearbox, or Fiat’s new six-speed dual-clutch auto.
