A length of 4.15 m
It uses the same CMP platform as its close cousins DS3 Crossback and Opel Mokka. Like them, it displays a format rather lower than the average of the segment, with a length of approximately 4.15 m. As a reminder, the Renegade is now 4.24 m, and its successor should certainly reach at least 4.30 m, like the second generation of Peugeot 2008. But unlike the Mokka and DS3 Crossback, this city SUV will not be manufactured in France, in Poissy (78). The assembly will take place, from December 2022, in the Polish Fiat plant in Tychy, alongside the future Alfa Romeo Brennero and 500X, a little more imposing.
For the time being, only an electric motor seems to be part of it… or even two on the all-wheel-drive version. An unprecedented configuration at Stellantis.
