Available as a two-door and four-door saloon and 5-door estate across a single generation, the succeeded the Fiat The was also marketed as the Fiat Mirafiori, after the Turin suburb where the cars were manufactured.

    Initially, the was offered with 1. When production ended in , 1,, models had been marketed. The Fiat used steel monocoque bodywork for its three-box design and used a front engine , rear-wheel drive layout, where the engine is longitudinally front-mounted.

    The gearbox is directly behind the engine, and a tubular propeller shaft , under the transmission "tunnel", transmits the drive to a solid live rear axle. The engines were all inline-four types, derived from those used in the outgoing range, with a cast iron cylinder block and aluminium alloy cylinder head. Initially the was offered only with pushrod valve gear, which offered the innovation of being the worldwide first engine with OHV valve gear and a belt driven camshaft.

    Traditional contact breaker ignition systems were used, usually with Marelli distributors. The suspension system utilised fully independent front suspension, with MacPherson struts , track control arms and anti-roll bar.

    The rear suspension was quite advanced when using a solid live rear axle , in that the rear axle was controlled by double unequal length trailing arms and a panhard rod , with coil springs and direct acting dampers.

    This design proved far superior to many of its contemporaries, especially with vehicle stability and handling. The braking system was also typical; the front brakes were disc brakes , using a solid iron disc and a single-piston sliding caliper. The rears were drum brakes a technological backwards step from the , which used discs all round , utilising leading and trailing shoe design operated by a dual piston fixed slave cylinder.

    They were operated hydraulically , with a tandem master cylinder assisted by a vacuum servo using two separate circuits. A rear-mounted load sensing valve varied the bias of effort applied to the rear brakes, dependent on the load being carried and also the pitch dynamics caused by braking effort and road levels.

    A centrally located floor mounted handbrake operated on the rear axle using bowden cables. The car's interior had its secondary dashboard switches illuminated by a central bulb with fibre optic distribution to the switches.
