Thrown, modern, beautiful, spacious, refined and innovative. These were some of the expressions used to define the new Fiat Cronos by the first people who knew the model closely during the compact sedan shop clinic recently held by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).
These adjectives were granted to the Fiat Cronos justly. Starting with the design of dynamic lines that run through and unify all elements of the body. The front is highlighted by strong features, with muscular appearance, and elongated hood, typical style of sports models. This feature is reinforced by the headlamps, which invade the sides with an LED signature, and is complemented by the chrome-plated central grille which also demonstrates the sedan’s refinement.
The sides reveal a vigorous surface that connects harmoniously to the high and wide rear, with LED lanterns with angled and seductive design. The lid houses one of the largest trunk in the category, with an impressive 525 liters capacity.
The design of the Fiat Cronos is engaging, stimulating, modern and full of personality. Cronos really translates a new time for the design of the sedans in the Brazilian market. The bold style coupled with sophistication is reflected in the interior, with plenty of space and modernity. The look is drawn to the 7-inch Uconnect Touch multimedia system, in floating style as a tablet and compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as standard in four of the five versions, allowing access to Waze and WhatsApp, among other applications. The equipment can be controlled from the multifunction steering wheel.
This, however, is just the opening of the entire technology package that embraces the new Fiat Cronos. The list is immense, but the iTPMS – tire pressure sensor – another standard in all versions – can be highlighted, the instrument panel with 7-inch digital display in high definition, the Start & Stop system for fuel economy , key-operated keyless entry, exterior mirrors with electric folding, tilt down and puddle lamps, rain sensors, twilight and dazzle sensors, digital automatic air-conditioning, aft camera with dynamic lines, parking sensor, electric steering and the system of cold start without tanquinho.
This technological sophistication is repeated throughout the entire mechanical assembly, anchored in the new generation of FCA engines. There are two options for motorization flex (1.3 Firefly and 1.8 E.torQ EVO), and three transmission (manual, GSR Comfort automated and automatic 6-speed).
In terms of safety the Fiat Cronos brings a new time to the segment. The state-of-the-art Fiat sedan offers side air bags, ESC (electronic stability control), TC (traction control), HH (Hill Holder) and ISOFIX child seat anchorage system.
To develop Cronos, FCA relied on comprehensive research and development to understand the needs and aspirations of the consumer, increasingly demanding and aware of technological developments in the automotive market.
Studies have shown that consumers of the compact sedan segment are mostly married, have at least one child, travel with their family and have a single car, and thus need to comply with fundamental precepts such as good internal space and of luggage, comfort and safety. Other items such as design, performance and fuel economy also have relevant participation in the purchase decision.
Another highlight of the research was the customer’s desire for technological contents that are really useful and that make a difference in their day-to-day life. In other words, the consumer is no longer interested in systems that at first sight appear modern, but that add little or no constant practical use. This perception was relevant in the choice of several items already cited that equip the Fiat Cronos, such as the 7-inch Uconnect Touch multimedia system and its screen projection functions.
