For now, we know that new model will get new platform. It will probably be some kind of stretched version of Renegade’s platform, which company also uses for Fiat 500X model. So, this means that new model will feature transversely mounted engine. Also, we expect to see massive use of light materials, which will provide significant weight savings, which eventually means better overall performances. In terms of styling, we must say that test model still wears a complete camouflage. However, we can see a base contour of the crossover, which promises very attractive, sporty appearance. Inside, 2018 C-Segment SUV should come with attractive, dynamic interior, which will include hi-quality materials, latest technologies etc.
