Fiat Auto has given its controversially styled Multipla minivan the new Fiat corporate nose for 2004. The revised model debuts at Geneva next month.

The distinctive front end, with a separate pair of main beam headlamps located at the base of the windscreen behind a flat bonnet, has been replaced by a sloping bonnet and conventional nose-mounted headlamps and grille.

The rear end has also been revised with a smoother look and new tail lamps.

The Multipla, a medium sized MPV or minivan, retains its unusual, for Europe, interior layout with six seats arranged in two rows of three.
