Fiat Topolino

Fiat has started testing a new mini-car to challenge the Smart ForTwo and upcoming city cars like the Volkswagen Up! and Toyota iQ

The Fiat will share a platform with the Panda and 500 but be shorter still. At 3.20 metres the new Fiat, likely to be named the Topolino, would undercut the 3.55-metres-long 500 but still offer seating for four. The Toyota and Volkswagen are expected to be 3.15 metres and 3.4 metres long respectively. The structure of the new car will be made of tubular cells, and designed to offer high levels of protection to the occupants in case of crashes.
