Two things in fact.

This is a first gen Fiat Croma, which shared part of its design with the Saab 9000, Lancia Thema and Alfa 164.

The second thing is that this now long-forgotten Fiat was the first production car to be fitted with a direct injection diesel. It provided only 94 bhp from its 1.9 litres despite a turbo. We’ve come a long way.
