The Fiat Uno was a supermini car made by the Italian manufacturer Fiat. The Uno was sold from 1983 to 1995, but production still takes place in other Countries. The Uno was launched in January 1983 to replace the older Fiat 127. In 1984 it was voted European Car of the Year. Initially, the Uno was offered with the 0.9 litre (903 cc) OHV, 1.1 litre (1116 cc), and 1.3 litre (1301 cc) 138-series SOHC petrol engines and transmissions taken from the 127. The 1.3 (1300 cc) diesel (not for the UK market) engine was launched a couple of months later. The Uno's badging was by metric HP: 45, 55, 60, 75 or 90. The Uno was available as either a 3 or 5-door hatchback. The Uno had MacPherson strut independent front suspension and twist-beam rear suspension with telescopic dampers and coil springs.
In 1985 the 1.0 litre (999 cc) SOHC Fully Integrated Robotised Engine (FIRE) powerplant was introduced. This was a lighter engine, built with fewer parts, and gave higher performances and more economy, in comparison to the older and more conventional OHV (903 cc) engine.
Personal comments: poor engine and poor braking (no ABS = a lot of skid), but very funny to drive ;-) Try to drive in a clean way, try to "paint" each corner in order to lose as few RPMs as possible. Performances and fuel consumption are realistic, but damage is very sensible, so don't smash too much ;-)
I'm very love-taken with this car, since it was my very first car.
