As per the latest rendering, the X6S sedan seems to strike a balance between simplicity and elegance, retaining the element of `solidity´ in styling that defines all Fiat sedans from the past. Although drawing design cues from the Euro-spec Aegea (Tipo) sedan, the car relies more on its hatchback sibling Argo. The twin-slat `fillet´ radiator grille and lower air dam with chrome accents is distinctive, a nice departure from the `hive´ format of the Argo. The headlamps and hood gets more detailing, while the extended wheelbase, high waist-line, and tapered roof line marks the side profile of the sedan. Rear doors are large and wide, extending further from the C-column, therefore will make the occupant´s accessibility to rear seat much easier.

The Fiat X6S does not try to mimic the grandeur of the Euro-spec Aegea sedan, but tries to be simple-yet-distinctively elegant

The posterior and rear profile of the X6S is way distinctive, as the styling is inspired more from the Alfa Romeo Guilia rather than Fiat Aegea. Especially the sleek and clear `triangular´ tail lamp design along with a diminutive-looking rear end. The `FIAT´ nameplate on the center of boot lid is akin to Argo, while the large black patch on the lower bumper with chrome feeding is interesting to look at. On the whole, the X6S does not try to mimic the grandeur of the Aegea sedan, but tries to be simple-yet-distinctively elegant.

Buyers can choose either 1.3-litre Firefly or 1.8 E.torQ EVO petrol engine options for the upcoming sedan. The 1.3-litre will be offered in two versions – 101 hp and 109 hp, while the 1.8 engine will generate 135 hp power and 184 Nm of torque. The latter mill is borrowed from the 2017 Jeep Renegade and Toro pickup range, along with start/stop technology and Flexi-fuel option. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual, 5-speed GSR automated manual (for 1.3L variant only) and 6-speed automatic reserved for 1.8L E.torQ EVO petrol.
