Five-zero car, the kind that most enthusiasts can only dream of. But also many, many models with much more affordable costs. At MIMO 2022, parked on the platforms distributed in the streets and squares of the center of Milan, there is something for all tastes and budgets, all on the launch pad or fresh off the landing on the Italian market, representing about fifty brand names. In this article, in particular, we focus on some of the most interesting previews and news of the Stellantis grouplanded in force at the Milanese open air show.
JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE
The launch version could be ordered as early as February, when the model had just arrived in the United States, but for most visitors to the MIMO it remains an absolute novelty. The landing in the Italian dealerships of the new one Jeep Grand Cherokee is set for this month, only in the rechargeable hybrid version: the 2.0 turbo-petrol four-cylinder is coupled, connected to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, an electric motor, for a total power of 380 hp and a maximum torque of 637 Nm (according to the house, in the city you can travel about fifty kilometers without using the heat engine). To say the least impressive dimensions, with a length of almost five meters and plenty of space for passengers and luggage. The price? A little salty, given that the price list starts at 94,000 euros (here to know more).

Stelvio’s “little sister” represents the new face of a brand steeped in history and passion, and is the first piece of a future to be written (here our first contact with the car).
PEUGEOT 308 SW
Modern and gritty like the sedan from which it derives, but larger (+28 cm in length) and suitable for long journeys, the Peugeot 308 SW it is not a novelty in the strict sense, having been on sale in Italy for a few months now. The extended wheelbase guarantees more space for rear passengers, while the luggage compartment capacity, of 608 liters, does not differ much from the previous generation model. The mechanics are that of the sedan: the engines are all turbo, and the petrol (1.2 three-cylinder) and diesel (1.5) versions are joined by the plug-in hybrid, with a 1.6 petrol engine combined with a powerful electric motor. Prices from 26,000 euros (here our test of a pre-series specimen).

Under the skin it is closely related to other models of the Stellantis group, including the French cousin Peugeot 308. Its trump cards? A simple and essential look inside and out and the space on board, comfortable for four adults (even in five, thanks to the almost flat floor, it is not cramped). She is comfortable and lively with all the engines. The only flaw, the trunk, not very large. The price list prices starts at 24,500 euros.
