The forthcoming Fiat Ellezero mini-MPV has been spied undergoing winter testing near the Arctic Circle. It is due to be launched at the Geneva motor show.

The new rival to the Citroën C3 Picasso and Ford B-Max bears a clear resemblance to the latest Panda in its six-window styling, while the nose treatment is similar to that of the Fiat 500.

Engines are likely to include the 84bhp turbocharged two-cylinder TwinAir, the 75bhp and 94bhp 1.3 Multijet diesels and the 99bhp 1.4-litre petrol unit.

Is this the long-rumoured 5 door, bloated version of the 500? AE 'pictured' a version of this recently, and it didn't look too nice (in my opinion).
AE pictures always make prospective new cars look terrible, using various bits from current cars. I've a feeling the Ellezero could be a bit quirky, a bit different (where the Mini Countryman is just plain frumpy)... but we shall see!

I agree, though RadeB's image above is not the AE one (not the one I've seen anyway), but its very similar.

if the ElleZero, thanks to its supermini underpinnings, can offer decent packaging and a spare wheel, it's potentially on to a winner.
The Multipla was ahead of its time on this front - shorter than the Bravo of the day, but with six seats. It's a shame the British public weren't adventurous/humorous enough to buy them.
