Body and Design

The new Croma was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro. The designer explained: "In the last 20 years, technological progress and market expectations have evolved rapidly. We just have to think of safety and the work involved in inserting airbags in the most effective points, the services offered by electronics in terms of individual comfort, active and passive safety, and of information. I would say that, compared to the 3-box model of 1985, the new Croma has basically taken onboard the lessons learned with people-movers - tall cars on which the space can be interpreted freely according to circumstances - while it maintains the image of a very comfortable saloon"

The Croma comes with one bodywork version, 475 centimetres long, 177 cm wide and 160 cm high, and a wheelbase of 270 cm.

Engines, transmissions and Performance

The Croma offers the 200 bhp 2.4 Multijet engine (combined with the 6-speed sequential automatic transmission), with a specific power output of 83 bhp/litre.

In addition to the two petrol engines (the 2.2 16v that delivers 147 bhp, and the 1.8 16v delivering 140 bhp which were available after the launch), the model proposes three Multijet turbodiesel engines (the 120 or 150 bhp 1.9, and the new 2.4 litre unit that delivers 200 bhp).

The new Croma is offered with 5 different gearboxes; all the engines meet EU Stage 4 emissions standards, and the diesel units are fitted with particulate filters. All the petrol engines are combined with 5-speed transmissions, with the option of the sequential automatic transmission on the 2.2 16v, and all the diesel engines have 6-speed gearboxes (the sequential automatic unit is offered as an alternative on the 150 bhp 1.9 Multijet, and as the standard unit on the powerful 200 bhp 2.4 Multijet 20v).
