Between the years of 1995 and 1996, the Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat made the Fiat Croma. In the year 2005, Fiat began producing another vehicle known as the Croma.
Originally, the Croma was a five door notchback lift back that was first penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro and constructed on the chassis of Type Four. The Fiat Croma was designed in collaboration with several other automotive companies. Its chassis was also utilized for the Lancia Thema, Alfa Romeo 164, and Saab 9000. While the other vehicles in question were executive automobiles, the Fiat Croma was advertised in the large car market, effectively replacing the Fiat Argenta model.
Production halted on the Fiat Croma in the year 1996, at which point Fiat stopped making large family cars. The small family Fiat Marea vehicle, which was Bravo based, ultimately replaced the Tempra and Croma as the largest estate and saloon vehicles in the Fiat model range.
In the year 2005, the Croma name was revived by Fiat with a new large cross over wagon that was somewhat reminiscent of the Fiat Stilo. Once again, the interior of the vehicle was styled by Giugiaro, while the chassis was provided with help from General Motors.
