Top features of the India-bound Fiat Cronos

Top features of the India-bound Fiat Cronos

Fiat Brazil has just launched the all-new Cronos sedan. The three-box sibling to the Argo hatch and the Indian equivalent of the C-Segment sedans, the Cronos will hit the South American market sometime next year. It will take on the likes of the Honda City, Hyundai Accent, Chevrolet Cobalt and the newly revealed Volkswagen Virtus in the Brazilian market. Before the new sedan makes its way to India, here are the top features of the Fiat Cronos.

Design:

Although the new Cronos is a sedan version of the successful Argo, there are more than few visible changes between the two. The changes are the usual differences that differentiate a hatchback from its sedan sibling. So you have a new chrome-louvred grille instead of the mesh one as on the Argo. Both the front and rear bumpers are now subtle in design rather than the swanky looking design of the hatch. The tail light design is similar but gets a different LED signature. The boot lid too is very simple in design on the Cronos sedan. 

Engine:

The Cronos will be powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder Firefly petrol engine borrowed from the Argo. The same engine is also called as GSE (Global Small Engine). There will also be a 1.3-litre four-cylinder. The top-spec model is expected to have a 1.8-litre 140bhp motor with a six-speed automatic transmission. 

If the Cronos makes its way to the Indian shores, the Linea replacement will be powered by the tried and tested 1.3-litre Multijet diesel and the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol motors. The five-speed manual will be standard, but as the segment demands, there will be an automatic transmission as well.

Cabin:

On the inside, the new Cronos will remain similar to the Argo. Which is a good thing since the Argo has got one of the best cabins offered by the Italian carmaker lately. So expect the same floating seven-inch infotainment system dominating the stylish dashboard.  The instrument binnacle will have a TFT screen as well. The carmaker has not revealed the dimensions of the car, but there are speculations that the boot space is somewhere around 520 litres. This is a lot more than the new Virtus, but the Fiat loses out on rear air-vents which are offered in the German sedan.
