Fiat debuted the Ottimo at the 2013 Guangzhou Auto show. The five-door hatchback is based on the same platform as the Dodge Dart and Fiat Viaggio sedan and it will be assembled alongside the Viaggio by the joint venture between Fiat and Guangzhou Automobile Group, doubling production at that plant in southern China.
The Ottimo will be priced near 100,000 yuan (~$16,400). In addition to the hatch in the back, the Ottimo gets a more aggressive front end than the Viaggio, though the interiors will be more or less identical.
Don’t expect a Dodge version, though Fiat is said to be working on a Viaggio based crossover/tall wagon that will be introduced next year in both Fiat and Dodge variants.
