    Concept previews a SUV based on the Toro pick-up for international markets.

    Fiat has teased a new SUV concept that will be unveiled at the Sao Paulo motor show. This new SUV is expected to be based on the Toro pick-up truck.

    One video reveals a prominent crease running up the bonnet from a narrow slot between the bonnet and front bumper (that could house the LED headlamps) towards the A-pillar. Lower down, the videos suggest a prominent grille which will likely be flanked by headlamps, along with noticeable vents on the lower front bumper that could house fog-lamps and a spoiler on the lower lip. Overall, the design bears a notable similarity with the Toro pick-up.

    The flanks reveal exaggerated squared-out wheel arches along with prominent creases running the length of the SUV – both at the belt line and near the base of the doors.

    Also depicted in the video was the making of the concept's 10-spoke alloy wheels.

    The videos also briefly show a glimpse of what could be the concept's interior on the design board, revealing a simple and clean dashboard with a steering and a large central touchscreen interface.

    Parent company FCA plans to introduce three new SUV/crossovers in international markets and the concept is likely previewing a three-row SUV for international markets.

    Currently, FCA's brand Jeep is readying a more off-road-oriented Compass Trailhawk for an India launch which is expected to soon be followed by the all-new Jeep Wrangler.
