The Segond Automobile Group based in Monaco offers different new models of Fiat cars. These vehicles, far from having the presence and performance of a luxury car, are also renowned for the quality of their materials, their robustness, their reliability and their economic character. Indeed, since its inception, the firm has pursued the goal of offering popular and easy-to-use solutions.
The brand name is an acronym that means: Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Turino; in other words: the Italian car factory in Turin. The Italian car brand was created in 1899 by thirty shareholders. Among these founders was an iconic figure who truly distinguished himself from his peers when he took over the company in 1902; it is Giovanni Agnelli. Agnelli was a visionary with the ambition to produce accessible cars for all and to popularize them quickly. From the first years of the company, it grew at an exceptional rate and the number of workers and factories grew in parallel with that of vehicle production. With the company's diversification policy (aeronautical and marine engines, buses, trams and trucks), exports to international markets begin very early.
The first model of the car to be born is called 3.5 HP. The latter was produced in 26 copies by the brand's workers between 1899 and 1901. He was the first in a long line of vehicles. In the early 1920s, the Turin brand began to release its Type 5 cars, which gave birth to the famous 500 in 1936. This design, original, functional, robust and accessible to as many people as possible was a huge success in Italy. Indeed, the 500 model represented the car par excellence that every Italian had to own. This car has thus for a long time embodied an ideal to be achieved for the Italian people and has even contributed greatly to the development of the Italian economy.
After the boom of the Italian economy, in the late 1970s until the early 2000s, renowned models such as the Panda, the Tipo, the Punto or even the Stilo, have followed one another. More recently, the brand decided to update its iconic models in new, more sophisticated versions. Thus, the Grande Punto, Panda and 500, to name but a few cars, have inherited a design synonymous with inovation and reworked for the occasion, of ever-robust design materials, as well as automotive technologies. The Abarth brand has even reimagined the iconic 500 to make it a top-performing sports car.
The Italian manufacturer, justifying its international reputation due to 120 years of experience, has since its inception the ambition to combine innovation, quality, robustness and reliability on its cars. It must be said that in more than a century, the brand has well deserved its prestige since it has remained authentic, while evolving with its time by offering vehicles always as qualitative, trendy and original.
In order to attract as many users as possible by precisely meeting their different needs, the Italian brand has chosen to segment its cars into several distinct ranges.
Indeed, the Turin brand offers city cars, crossovers, family vehicles, and sports cars. In the city area, for example, we find the models 500, Panda and Qubo. The brand also offers family models with the 500L and Doblo, sedans with the Tipo, SUVs with the 500 X, sports with the 124 Spider and even a pickup, with the Fullback.
