Sports a modern design concept
Dubbed as the 'four door coupe with an adventurous spirit,' Fiat has revealed the FCC4 concept at the 2014 Sao Paulo International Motor Show.
This could possibly be a preview to Fiat's version of the Mitsubishi L200 pickup with the company's design elements instead of a straight rebadge. The two companies signed an agreement last month for a joint mid-size pickup which sees Mitsubishi supplying vehicles from their Laemchabang, Thailand plant to the Italian automaker.
The FCC4 concept was developed by the Fiat Design Center Latam and measures 5000mm long, 1940mm wide and 1600mm tall. The FCC4 concept has an aggressive front design that features a slim grill and a prominent bumper. It also has LED headlights along with daytime running lights and fog lamps.
The Mitsubishi pickup concept measures 5420mm long, 1930mm wide, and 1775mm tall. Dimension-wise, the Fiat concept is significantly shorter and sits lower than the Mitsubishi GR-HEV concept but is slightly wider.
Turning at the side, the FCC4 concept is designed with dynamic lines and reduced glass area. Fiat says the vehicle applied a wrap around design concept that extends the windshield all the way to the rear.
The FCC4 concept is fitted with LED taillights and the bumper houses the exhaust tips and the aluminum protector placed at the center. The vehicle also features an asymmetrical cargo area with two different doors. The FCC4 was clearly designed more as a lifestyle pickup than utilitarian.
However, the interior and the powertrain details of the FCC4 concept have not yet been revealed by the automaker.
