"FIAT'S BIGGEST BABY"
"Fiat's brand new 850 sedan is obviously planned to breach the gap between the 600D (which continues) and the Fiat 1100D before VW produce their much rumoured small car, and before the Mini gets too strong a hold in Europe."
"Although the 850 follows the configuration of the well-known 600 it has more modern and commodious bodywork."
"Fiat have no export plans for the car until the European autumn, and at the time of going to press no prices were available...."
"...There are no plans to sell the 850 in Australia as yet."
