Fiat 500 soon in a larger version
Fiat’s 500 will reportedly come in a larger version, to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The Italian brand is gearing up to release a wagon version of the tiny model, reports Automotive News.
Although details on the model are currently scarce, it’s believed to be a more roomy version developed specifically for the US market and is likely to come with a high-performance variant from sister brand Abarth.
Recent pictures from Italy suggest that the automaker could be planning to borrow elements of both the 500 and the new Fiat Panda for the new models, if one shot captured at a ski resort is anything to go by.
The larger-than-life 500 LimoCity, Landaulet and LimoSun have been formed of multiple Fiat 500 units to build a 500 that can measure up to a staggering 5.3 meters in length.
