2015 Dodge Vision (corrected)

by Daniel Bennett on

Thanks to reliable insider Mr. Source, has learned of a new entry into the Mexican sub-compact market from Dodge. The 2015 Dodge Vision is set to go on sale in Mexico in the first quarter of 2015. 2015 Dodge Vision 1The Vision is made in Brazil, and is basically a Fiat Siena Essence. It uses a Fiat sourced E-Torq DOHC 1.6l four cylinder, descended from the Neon 2.0, that produces 117 hp, albeit now with an aluminum block and other upgrades; it is backed by the Fiat automated manual “Dualogic” transmission that has both auto and manual modes.

They come equipped standard with ABS, front airbags, cruise, A/C, and parking assist. This is undoubtedly a replacement for the previous Dodge badged Hyundais that were sold up until the middle of 2014 in Mexico.

Mexico is a relatively small market, with just over 1 million new car sales as recently as 2013, according to the U.S. government. Nissan is the giant, with nearly 25% of the market, with GM following in second place at 19% market share. Volkswagen-Audi Group (VAG) is third, with nearly 15% share.


Fiat Chrysler is a distant fifth, with 7.4% market share. A successful sub-compact will grow market share for FCA in Mexico, as up until now, there has been no in house sub-compact sold in Mexico — only clumsily rebadged Hyundais, retaining the Hyundai logo on the grille.

Below is a full walk around of a Columbian Fiat Siena Essence, which is what the Dodge Vision will be.

Dan Bennett was doomed from the start. His parents bought a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner when it was known that he was coming along, and the rest of the story was written from that point forward.
Raised in a Mopar only home, Dan has also been Mopar only. From ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s muscle to current SRTs of various flavors, Dan has owned, and in many cases raced, each of the Mopar brands.
Dan’s real career is as a “parts guy” at a local dealership, but he also is a muscician, computer geek/gamer, avid reader, and general all around seeker of knowledge. His whole working career has been spent in the parts industry, starting in the aftermarket, and now at the dealership level. He took a couple years off and went in a different direction for a bit as a jewelry designer and salesman, and even though he won a design award for a piece, his true calling, automotive, won out in the end.
He has written articles, or has had vehicles that have appeared in Mopar Muscle, Sport Truck, and Truckin’. In various forums and social media, he has made a name for himself as the “Go-to” guy for tech information for all things Mopar. He also has a large background in many forms of racing and engine building, holding at one point a ASE Certified Master Engine Machinist rating. Though he no longer keeps that certification up to date, he is still very active in the engine building side when he has spare time.
To Dan, there is no option to covering the Mopar world, it is an imperative that must be done to keep his world in balance.
