Will this replace the Suzuki Ignis based Holden/Chevrolet Cruze AWD compact hatch??<p>I know it say's it's going to replace the Jimny, but I can't see it will.

FIAT has a few SUVs in the pipeline.<p>a )The Panda is already out there, and it just happend to see one them this weekend on a sandy beach dunes where Land Rover struggle and it managed them easily. The low weight help it not sink in sand.<p>b )There is the Idea 4WD , also known as 5Terre , which is a B Segment MPV <p>c )and there is a SUV the size of the VITARA, or bit more compact...

The Panda SUV will have slightly different bodywork than the 4x4 Climbing, like the simba, which was shown 2 years ago, although it may change a bit on the production version

I think suzuki jimny replacement won't get anything related with Fiat panda/simba suv but they wiil build from thier land breeze concept instead.
