Fiat Egea (production spec Aegea) debuts in official video
Fiat Turkey had unveiled a new global concept sedan at the Istanbul Motor Show earlier this year. Called Aegea in its concept avatar, the new family sedan is set to replace the ageing Linea sedan when it is launched in Turkey by November this year.
After Fiat unveiled the Aegea Concept, they were spied testing the car in disguised format in Europe. About two days ago, the first images of the Aegea sedan in undisguised format were leaked online.
All this while, there was nothing that was officially revealed by Fiat on the Aegea front. Until now. The video below is the first time Fiat is revealing the car officially in production ready guise. Though the video is more of a teaser than a official promo, it does detail the upcoming Aegea like never before.
Much more advanced and feature-rich than the Linea, the video reveals that in production ready guise, Aegea Concept will be called Egea. New Fiat Egea will be offered in a choice of petrol and diesel engine options. These will be in the form of two diesel engines and two petrol engines, all four cylinder mills. Though Fiat has not confirmed which engines, they did say that the power output rating will range between 95 to 120 bhp. They also said that diesel entry level variant will deliver in excess of 25 kmpl.
Measuring 4.5 metres in length, 1.78 metres in width and 1.48 metres in height, Fiat Egea will be produced at Fiat Tofas plant in Bursa. After the car is launched in Turkey, it will also be exported to at least 40 countries, where it will replace Linea.
In India, the Egea is planned for launch in 2017.
