Fiat didn’t have to dig too deep to find a name for its 2005 family car. It just had to go to two decades and find a decent family vehicle: the Croma. The 2005 model was a completely different vehicle. While the original version was built together with Saab, and it was a hatchback, its successor was more of a minivan. Worth mentioning that in 2005 the European MPV market was not so crowded anymore, and the customers were already turning their heads toward SUVs and crossovers. Moreover, Croma came in a bad moment and, when the world financial crisis started in 2008, the effects were terrible for the Italian brand. Fiat didn’t build the Croma from scratch. It used the same GM Epsilon platform from the Opel/Vauxhall Vectra, Cadillac BLS, and Saab 9-3. Giorgetto Giugiaro signed the design, and it was supposed to be a family vehicle.
