UOL Cars discussed with FCA Design Director Peter Fassbender to get more information on the prototype
The Fiat test at the São Paulo 2018 Motorcycle Festival features a prototype SUV coupe named Fastback.
In the privileged position of the card – and perhaps in one of the best exhibition venues, the whole event, right at the pavilion's entrance – has been attracted by eye-catching design and chrome color.
But what is Fastback?
In practice, it is the concept of SUV "acupezado" features and the full Toro truck. Fiat has not confirmed whether it is being manufactured but prototype development must encourage a model that is expected to start in 2020.

Promote Tor's new face
If the design of the "SUV-coupe" product is preserved in its production model, it will go so far as to be fought in the future Renault Arkana, another model that would fill a growing segment of the more commonly used secret utilities segment. It will be a repeat of the "Duster Oroch vs. Toro" battle, but moving from the pickup car to the urban car cable.
Although it reminds a lot of Toro ahead, Fastback brings elements that show visual evolution in relation to the pickup. It also means how it can be the first facelift a truck.
Remember the BMW X4
The cover for the large tailgate – called "Fastback" – resembles the trend that luxury dealers are already using: BMW implemented this with X6, later with Series 3 GT and the latest in X4. The latter is a good inspiration for both Renault and Fiat.
All the tracks seem to try to make him more horizontal and muscular – and perhaps not as long as Toro. The rear is clean and harmonious, highlighting the boot lid with respect to the bumper. The Matte silver paint refers to brushed aluminum and resembles the most popular paintings of Tesla's cars.
