At the front, the over silhouette does resemble the iconic Fiat to a large extent, but the modern design highlights differentiate it apart from the old model too. For instance, the round trademark headlamps remain, but the projector and chrome surrounds accentuate and modernise the appearance. Then there is a massive chrome grille with vertical slats along with a chunky chrome bumper to bling things up. All these are signs of the new-age design language.

On the sides, the large chrome spoked wheels are something that will instantly transport us back to the 1980s but the sleek door handle designed with a flush-fitting mechanism takes us to the future. The B-pillar is either non-existent or transparent that blends well with the window frame. The rear has compact LED headlamps with chrome garnish and the bling on the bumper with the help of chrome continues. Overall, this is a perfect combination of the retro and neo themes DC Design is going for. What are your opinions about this?
