C100 – hatchback or crossover?

by David Zatz on

Recently, Allpar was told that there was one vital difference between our Chrysler 100 rendering (below) and the actual 100, 100C, and 100S: The real car won’t be a sedan.

Sedans have been falling out of favor with buyers, just as two-door cars did decades ago. Thus, some sources have now told Allpar that the Chrysler 100 will in fact be a hatchback or crossover.

These sources also wrote that the 100, 100S, and 100C will be well differentiated from each other. The company could presumably wait to sell the 100S until they have a turbocharged 2-liter engine.

The Chrysler 100 series (100, 100S, 100C) was announced in 2014, as part of the long-term FCA plan. The 100 will reportedly cost less to build than the Dodge Dart,  and be somewhat lighter.

The 100, almost certainly to be made in Toluca, Mexico, will probably be more upscale in look,  feel, and power than the Fiat Tipo.

FCA has not released any official information about the 100 other than its name and class.
