Noticed the new Jeep Compass? Think about a new Fiat SUV now, but don’t keep your breath, it can be an SUV predicated on the Compass again.
Rumours have to strike the internet that Fiat has resumed the ongoing work on a fresh SUV model, that may replace its Freemont MPV in the international marketplaces.
A written report of Autoblog.com.ar statement that the new SUV of Fiat depends on the Jeep’s recently launched Compass.
Fiat has placed on hold the programs for an SUV this past year as the brand was focusing on the Argo hatchback and X6S sedan.
Based on the latest statement, the company has gone back again to the drawing table to restart the work and the new SUV will borrow design and styling cues from Toro pickup.

The Toro comes driven by a 1.8-litre petrol engine and 2.0-litre Multijet turbo diesel engine, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a six-speed manual or optional nine-speed automated gearbox.
