Fiat aborts Topolino premium city-car for cheaper model

Well placed internal sources suggest Fiat is working hard on an all-new cost effective city-car, while the upmarket Topolino will be axed.

The car will replace the cheap and aging Seicento, which is still available in some European markets like Italy, where it’s known as the ‘600’. The forthcoming model will have comparable proportions to the Toyota iQ.

The Topolino was based upon the current Panda city-car and was initially proposed to be an upmarket city-car, but it failed to get the green light because Fiat executives believed that “it wasn’t right for the market”.
