2015 Fiat Aegea Debuts at the Istanbul Motor Show

Here it is, boys and girls! The Fiat Aegea debuted at the Istanbul Motor Show and its name is Old Greek for “shield.” Manufactured in Bursa, Turkey, the all-new successor of the Fiat Linea is set to go on sale this fall in over 40 EMEA markets around the world.

There’s no word yet if the 2015 Fiat Aegea will arrive in the United States. Considering that the 500 lineup and Abarth bruisers make up for the Italian brand’s Stateside presence, the chances are borderline slim. Designed in Italy from head to toe, the all-new Fiat Aegea intends to reinforce the marque’s “unrivaled leadership in the Compact Sedan segment in Turkey.”

During its three years of development, engineers and designers alike created the Aegea to be a three box sedan from the ground up, not a spin off created on the basis of a compact hatchback. 4 and a half meters long, 178 cm wide and 148 cm high with a wheelbase of 264 cm, the model boasts sufficient room for five passengers and a boot capacity of “over 510 liters.”

As far as exterior styling is concerned, the Fiat Aegea sort of resembles some cues we’ve first seen on the 2015 Chrysler 200. On the oily bits front, two MultiJet2 turbo diesel units and two petrol engines are available with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions.

Output-wise, look forward to ratings of between 95 - 120 horsepower. Fiat says that the most frugal diesel engine is capable of returning “less than 4 liters (70.6 UK mpg) for 100 km,” which is Fiat Panda territory.

Inside, all is well and all is Fiat. Other than the 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system (including TomTom satellite navigation), many trim pieces and buttons are shared with other FCA models. Last but not least, expect the 2015 Fiat Aegea to have a price list before November.
