Strada Adventure extended cab:I don't know about the crew cab layout. There's hardly any pickup bed left :lol: It looks awkward. I'd like to see it in two-seater form, with an "extended cab" so there's a bit of space for seat adjustment.
But I still fail to see the fascination with pickups in general. There's a certain nich? of course, but for general use, I'd take a van any day of the week.
Dad bought one of those for his first car. I'd grown up hearing awful stories about some of the cars my parents had (like a used lemon Maverick my mom bought because she liked how it looked) but his stories about the Strada. Floor rusted out, wouldn't go into reverse, he eventually had some sort of recurring issue with the clutch or shift linkage. I heard these stories for years and only realized later that he bought the thing NEW.Actually the Strada name was only used for English speaking markets and elsewhere it was the Ritmo.
And that's not a Fiat, it's an Abarth 130TC.
Can't be arsed typing IceBone tabs.
See the VW Rabbit Sportruck/Caddy above - cheap poverty-spec runabout, check. Didn't sell for crap here, check.Turbocharged(?) AWD converted saloon car vs cheap poverty-spec runabout... not really the same thing.
