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.
From the photos of these early production versions of the new Uno, it's clear that Fiat has moved away from the design language of the Punto and original Uno and produced a much more curvaceous, friendly-looking car.
There are also strong shades of the Panda around the upright tailgate and vertical tail-lights. The three offset slots in the nose are a reference to the original Panda.
These scoop shots also appear to show that the Uno will be sold in entry-level, upmarket sporting and pseudo-SUV guises.
