The New Fiat Croma

Fiat Croma

Fiat presents the new Croma, an evolution of the Station Wagon concept, which will be on the market in the Summer. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro and built in the Cassino plant, south of Rome, the new Fiat revives the name of the former model which was a benchmark among medium-high range saloons from 1985 to 1994, and of which over 450,000 were built. Like the earlier model, the new Croma stands out for the "substance" of the concepts it embodies:

  • Generous interior roominess for outstanding comfort
  • Technological innovation in the field of diesel engines
  • Superior quality for a mass produced model.
The new Croma was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, and it introduces an original "stylistic" formula with innovative architecture and intelligent features. As the designer explained: "In the last 20 years, technological progress and market expectations have evolved rapidly. We just have to think of safety and the work involved in inserting airbags in the most effective points, the services offered by electronics in terms of individual comfort, active and passive safety, and of information. I would say that, compared to the 3-box model of 1985, the new Croma has basically taken onboard the lessons learned with people-movers - tall cars on which the space can be interpreted freely according to circumstances - while it maintains the image of a very comfortable saloon": in other words a Comfort Wagon.
