Concept Car of the Week: Fiat Scia (1993)

Fiat Scia hero

Although based on the Punto, the Fiat Scia looked so much more with its boat-like body shape and enticing stature

After a successful design competition between famous Italian design houses to rework the little Cinquecento, Fiat renewed the experience two years later by giving to nine of them - including Fiat’s in-house studio - a new Fiat Punto as a base to let their creative juices flow.

The results ranged from being simply forgettable (Zagato Monomille), ridiculously daft (Boneschi Doblone) or just plain ugly (Giannini Punto 4x4 TL), but one of the concepts stood out from the flock for being brilliantly bold. This was the Fiat Scia, presented to the public at the 1993 Turin Auto Show.
