According to Fiat, the new Viaggio will be built at the GAC-Fiat World Class Manufacturing facility in partnership with Guangzhou Automobile Group.

Under the bonnet we will find a 1.4-liter T-Jet petrol engine in two power versions: 120hp and 150hp. Both units come together with a five-speed manual transmission but an optional DDTC (Dual Dry Clutch Transmission) is available as well.

“The new four-door, five- passenger Fiat Viaggio is based on the CUSW (Compact US Wide) architecture – the most advanced within the Fiat Group – which is also the basis of the new Dodge Dart,” says the Italian car maker.
