With just than less than a month away from the launch in February, Fiat’s Toro has been caught on Brazilian roads without sporting any camouflage. This is the first time that the 1.8-litre E.torQ petrol motor, speculated to do duty on the base versions, has been spotted.
The E.torQ petrol model will generate 138bhp and 20Nm of torque and will be mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox with power being transmitted to the front wheels only. Exterior wise, the base version will provide less chrome accents, will drop the daytime running light and the wheels will have different design.
Till date readers have been able to feast their eyes on the top-end variant called ‘Volcano’, which could come equipped with the 2.0-litre multijet engine that flexes 170bhp and spins out 35.7Nm of torque. This engine has been picked up from the Fiat Renegade and will be made available on the Toro with a six-speed manual or a nine-speed automatic transmission. Buyers will also be able to choose from the 4x2 or 4x4 versions that will be offered on the stable.
Stay tuned for more information once the car is launched next month in Brazil.
