slight changes

In terms of design, the main changes focus on the front. But they are almost imperceptible. The grille, for example, now has two chrome trims instead of one, as well as a new beehive design and Fiat’s Italian “flag”. Everything else remains the same. That is, the sedan does not change the headlights, which bring LED daytime running lights. In addition, it does not change the bumpers (front and rear) or the taillights.

Another novelty are the light alloy wheels, which have a new design. It is worth mentioning that, as with the Cronos for sale in Argentina, there is a new color in the portfolio, Cinza Strato. Finally, in versions with 1.3 flex engine, there is the optional S-Design package, which adds more “sporty” details, such as black frames in place of chrome.
