    What if? TipoNeon SRT

    Even FCA hasn’t figured out yet if they are planning to import Mexican Dodge Neons to the United States, and already a reader has rendered two potential SRT versions. the top one follows recent Dodge styling, and the second one looks more like the original.

    Since the 160-hp 1.4 liter turbo engine used in Darts seems to be the biggest engine you can shove into a Tipo, an SRT version may seem like a stretch, but maybe it’s possible. The rendering above, from reader “gotahemi,” would provide plenty of cooling for whatever the company could shove in. The Tipo and Neon have both gotten high marks for handling, which would come in handy.

    This one is a bit more toned down but still has more cooling showing than the standard 2017 Dodge Neon, which is, in essence, a Fiat Tipo with some well-chosen appearance changes. The biggest engine you can get in the Neon is a 1.8 liter “e.torQ,” which is a descendent of the old Chrysler Neon engine; it would not be nearly powerful enough for U.S. sale, hence the standby Fiat Turbo. In Europe, buyers can get a 1.3 or 1.6 diesel, or a 1.4 gasoline engine.
