FIAT Centro Stile on the new Ducato, aka Ironman's eyebrows

Enjoyable video discussing the refreshment of the front end.

I like the element of the headlight eyebrows and how they mimic the brows of a Spartan helmet (though it reminds me of Ironman's helmet).

Though I didn't see it before, the 2006 Ducato bodystyle (also the 2014 PM) share the stacked geometric forms of the old FIAT Multipla (which also wasn't received well)

Pretty nice video, Keith. Time will tell whether this will be the 2015 PM design as well. Hopefully so.

Hopefully so indeed! The new front end looks so much better than the current one.

Oh, and maybe they can throw in a tilt-wheel and a nine-speed automatic while they're at it.

I recently got a book that was published by Fiat when the Multipla was introduced. It includes design development sketches and engineering details. That car was way ahead of the times with interior and exterior concepts and details! It has been the winner of many "Best in Class" awards, and even "Best Car in the World" by somewhat reputable automobile critics. http://youtu.be/O1lNnAmck4M

I am not saying it is the world's most beautiful car, but now I can see the reasons it looks the way it does. I have seen the Multipla in person but never driven one; too bad it came out during the era when Fiats was not available in the US...
