Fiat 600 Multipla – urban rear-engined car

Fiat 600 Multipla – urban rear-engined car. The name “Multipla” means – “multi-purpose and universal”. Designed for both family and commercial use. The Fiat 600 Multipla was a four-door MPV based on the Fiat 600’s drivetrain and Fiat 1100 front suspensions, that sat up to six people in a footprint just 50 cm (19.7 in) longer than the original Mini Cooper and on the same 2 m (78.7 in) wheelbase as the 600 saloon. This had been achieved moving the driver’s compartment forward over the front axle, effectively eliminating the boot but giving the body a very minivan-like “one-box”, flat-front look.
