He Fiat Chrono, the best-selling car in the local market in 2021 and 2022, has just been refurbished. A few days after the celebration of its fifth anniversary, the Italian brand has updated its offer with a restyling of the range and the addition of new versions.
From now on the Cronos family will consist of four versions (until now it had five) in which three new variants are incorporated (Like, Drive Pack Plus and Stile), all equipped with the 99 horsepower 1.3 petrol engine and five-speed manual gearbox.
The only discontinued was the Drive 1.3 CVT, the automatic version with intermediate equipment level.
The Precision version, on the other hand, remains unchanged as the most complete variant and as the only one available with an automatic transmission of the CVT type (continuously variable), with seven pre-programmed gears.
What does everyone bring?
Fiat I like Chronos It replaces the Attractive 1.3 GSE, as an entry-level version. Among the main new features, it incorporates 15″ alloy wheels as standard and mirrors and handles in body color (before black). From the brand they clarify that this version will not be available for the Savings Plan channel.
In turn, the Cronos Drive Pack Plus adds equipment details inherited from the now discontinued S-Design variant. Among these, the 15” multi-spoke alloy wheels painted in black, piano black mirrors, black front grille, logos and copper-colored exterior finishes stand out.
One accessory that has been abandoned is the traditional spoiler of the S-Design version, now offered as an option.
Finally the Chrono style is positioned as a manual alternative to the Precision 1.3 CVT version and will be available as a savings plan model.
It has 15″ alloy wheels, chrome exterior trim, power fold exterior mirrors with courtesy light, darkened interior, leather steering wheel, leather upholstery, front center armrest and split rear seat, among the highlights.
Fiat announces that the first two scheduled maintenance coupons have been completed subsidized. They must be performed every 10,000 kilometers or one year, whichever comes first.
