Fiat is poised to launch an all-new supermini that will sit between the Panda and the Grande Punto.
The new model will use the famous Uno name and in effect be a replacement for the original Uno and Mk2 Punto, both of which are still in production in various parts of the world.
Launched in 1983, the crisply designed and spacious Uno supermini was a huge hit for Fiat.
Sources say the new model is based on a shortened and simplified version of the Grande Punto platform. It should be around 3.8 metres long, which would make it a similar size to the Mazda 2. However, the design will focus on interior space in a bid to deliver more room than any similar-priced rival.
It's thought that the new car will be priced very aggressively, but there's no news yet as to whether it will be launched in the UK.
However, in the face of huge competition from Korean brands and the gaping hole between the Panda and Grande Punto, Fiat could achieve significant success with the Uno in Europe and Russia.
