2011 Fiat Uno, Supermini Autos of Italia: These here are the first official photographs of the 2011 Fiat Uno, a new supermini that will sit between the Panda and the Grande Punto in the Italian automaker’s vehicle range. The car borrows its name from the predecessor of the Punto and Grande Punto superminis, the highly successful Uno that was introduced in 1983 as a replacement to the ageing Fiat 127. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the original Uno remained in production until 1995 having received a heavy facelift in 1989.
Its spiritual successor, which closely resembles a larger Panda in appearance, will be manufactured in Brazil.
It will be offered (initially) in two flavors, the standard five-door hatchback model and the crossover-ish Uno Way that boasts a higher road clearance and rugged looks.
There are no details on the engine range, but South American buyers shouldn’t expect any surprises under the hood as Fiat will most likely use the same small displacement powertrains found on its other models.
Sources state that the new Uno will also make its way to Europe, Russia and other major international markets, but Fiat has yet to announce any specific details.
