Fiat Storms Germany with Strada Lumberjack Edition

Italian automaker's Brazilian division makes custom ute for Germany market. Canadian boots sold separately.
There's a lot of things you could say about Fiats today, but "rough and tumble: isn't one of them. After all, the Italians can do supercars and superminis, but aside from exceptions like the Iveco Campagnola and Lamborghini LM002, off-road utility vehicles are not the country's specialty. That's where the Strada Adventure Lumberjack edition comes in. The Strada (ironically borrowing its name from the Italian for "street") is built in Brazil by Fiat Automoviles on the same chassis and assembly line as the Palio.

The Palio is the Italian automaker's budget hatchback for the South American market. The Lumberjack edition Strada Adventure, however, is exclusive to Germany. It's characterized by ther Adventure's off-road body-cladding that's aggressive enough to make a Subaru Outback or Audi Allroad look like city-slickers, with the optional off-road package and exclusive metallic burgundy paint with decals. Buyers can choose between two-seater single-cab or four-seater double-cab models, trimmed in leather crafted by Canadian-styled Italian shoemaker Lumberjack.
