Fiat Strada Malibu details:
Launched in 1996 in Brazil, as the "cargo member" of the '178 Project'. The Strada was born to replace the City, a pickup version of the Fiorino, based on the Fiat Uno. The Strada features a maximum loading capacity of 700kg and a cargo-space of 1770 mm x 1314 mm.
In 2001 the model has the first facelift. The new layout was made by the Italian design-guru Giorgetto Giugiaro. The facelift contains a new front and dashboard. The Mk. II series marks the debut of an extended cabin version. In 2002, Fiat do Brasil launches the first version of a Fiat Strada Adventure, with offroad looks.
The new Mk. III comes in 2004. It has a new front, and dashboard layout taken from the Palio and also developed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. This is the year of the second version of the Strada Adventure, with the same features of the Weekend Adventure. It is provided in Europe with the relatively modern 1. 9 JTD Diesel motor.
