New Egea Cross

The Egea Cross, the new member of the Fiat Egea family, stands out as the first crossover model produced in Tofas, as well as a versatile car for a new target audience.

The Egea Cross looks as wide and imposing as it should be in a crossover model, with its strong and bold design lines and a new grille appearance extending under the headlights. With its new suspension structure, new rim, and tire dimensions, the ground clearance of the Egea Cross is bigger by 4 centimeters compared to other body options.

Thanks to the roof rails offered as standard in all Cross versions, the Egea Cross gains 7 centimeters in total compared to its hatchback counterpart. The Fiat Egea Cross, which can be preferred with the Street, Urban, and Lounge equipment levels, reveals both its design and functional difference with its larger tires that reinforce its strong appearance.

The body architecture of the Egea Cross, which is 7 centimeters higher than the Egea Hatchback, offers a higher riding position. The Egea Cross’s crossover details start with the body cladding around the fenders and continue on the sides and front.

The muscular front and rear bumpers specially designed for the Cross, the side sills and the roof rails specific to this body type bring the car a powerful and flashy appearance.
