Brazilian reveal for new Fiat supermini; larger than a Panda, smaller than a Punto
7 May 2010

Fiat has released official pictures and details of its second-generation Uno supermini, which is poised to go into production at its Betim plant in Brazil.

The new Uno will be available with a choice of two new flex-fuel petrol engines when it goes on sale in Brazil later this month. The 1.0-litre unit will produce up to 73bhp when running on alcohol and 75bhp on petrol, while the 1.4-litre unit will deliver a maximum of 88bhp on alcohol and 85bhp on petrol. Both engines power the front wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox.

See the official Fiat Uno pictures

At 3.77m long and 1.64m wide, the new Uno is positioned between the Panda and the Grande Punto. The Uno's styling is loosely based on the Panda's but with a slightly softened shape and s redesigned front grille and bumper.

The images also show the pseudo-SUV version of the Uno, known as the 'Way', which has a much higher ground clearance, roof bars and contrasting bumpers and trim around the wheel arches.

Fiat has yet to confirm whether the Uno will go on sale in the UK.

Hmmm ... looks like Great Wall should get their lawyers on the case here .... a clear copy of their design the Great Wall Peri.

LOL!

I thought Italians were supposed to be stylish. What happened?

Looks as though Fiat acquired Tonka Toys along with Chrysler. Might appeal to the very young driver, especially in bright yellow!

Not an appealing car atall.id expect some like dacia to make a car like this......however the 1.0 petrol looks interesting, if it's cleaner than the panda engines.

I had begun to think that Fiat were getting their act together a little bit. But this new Uno is just awful, inside and out.

Whereas the first Uno styling was cutting edge this is just dull

You are all wrong. This is classic Fiat. Form follows function as with the original Panda. Fiat don't need to think about style with this car (though, for me, they have) as they have the 500 for people who like to have cars that suddenly look very dated.

Bring back steel wheels.

I think I agree. It has the same appealing bluntness of purpose as both the Mk1 and Mk2 Panda, and both those cars have been sales successes.

The net on the passenger seat looks a good idea, other than that, an anonymous car.............

It looks like a little yellow van, except of course in Ferrari red, when it looks like a little red van.

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
