Total Production: 77,000 1950 - 1954
The Fiat 1400 was the company's first unibody car, and their first passenger car equipped with a diesel engine. It was introduced at the 1950 Geneva Motor Show and came powered by a 1.4-liter engine. The Fiat 1900 was introduced in 1952 and it shared the same body and platform as its 1400 sibling. The 1.4-liter 1400 was Fiat's intermediate model while the 1900 was an upmarket version that had an enlarged 1.9-liter powerplant along with more luxurious trim and equipment. In 1954, the petrol-engined Fiat 1900 A was introduced, offering 70 horsepower. It came with a five-speed column shifted manual transmission was a hydraulically operated clutch, and unusual setup for the era.
