The hatchback is powered by a 1.0-litre flex-fuel engine which puts out 75 PS while running on ethanol.

The Fiat Mobi small car which is all set to be launched in Brazil on April 13 has already started arriving at dealerships in Sao Paulo. Quatrorodas has managed to click some close-up shots of the mid-variant.

To be available in six variants – Easy, Easy On, Like, Like On, Way and Way On – the Mobi will replace the low-cost Uno Vivace. According to Quatrorodas’ dealer sources, the Uno Vivace ran out of stock and the company has stopped producing it. The regular Uno, however, will continue to be sold.

The Mobi would be targeting the Renault Kwid which is expected to go on sale in the Latin American market later this year. The new Fiat small car derives the front half of its platform from the Uno while the rear half has been developed from scratch, in a bid to offer a better crash rating.

The hatchback has a tall stance like its rival. While the basic shape is not far away from that of the Uno, the Mobi is slightly smaller and adopts fresh design for its front and rear fascias. Inside, the dashboard design has a simple yet modern appeal. The all-black color theme is further enhanced by piano black finishes on the centre console and steering wheel. Equipment list of the fully loaded Way On variant includes dual airbags, ABS, fog lamps, alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment system, reverse parking sensor, multifunction steering wheel etc.
