We can expect production version to arrive in 2020

Fiat wants to expand its SUV offerings in the Brazilian market. So Fiat shows itself at the Sao Paulo International Motor Show. The newly unveiled Fastback concept is a coupe-like crossover with a silhouette similar to the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

The Fastback concept features two-tier headlights that include a small strip of illumination at the tip of the hood and a second set of lights in the grille. The Fastback is purely an exterior design concept at the moment.

From the Fastback’s size, it’s possible to guess that the vehicle uses the same underpinnings as the Jeep Renegade, Compass, and Fiat Toro pickup. “Fastback is the materialization of Fiat’s change,” Herlander Zola, Fiat’s commercial director, told partners of Motor1.com  from Motor1.com Brazil.

FCA Latam President Antonio Filosa announced a plan to invest 8 billion Brazilian Real ($2.12 billion at current exchange rates) into the country by 2023 for new models, engines, and multimedia systems. The automaker intends to launch 15 vehicles in Brazil in that time. A production version of the Fastback concept should be among them and could hit the market in about 2020.
