So, what to expect from this model? It will be a new compact sedan, which will be designed and developed jointly by Chrysler and Fiat. Since Italian company is an ultimate expert for small cars, seems pretty much expected that many design solutions will be borrowed from Fiat. New model is expected to come by the end of year.
