Yugo Florida.jpg

Yugo Florida. 1988–2008 (prod. 190,000 approx., incl. 29,950 Florida 2). 5-door saloon. F/F, 1116, 1299, 1372, 1580, 1587 cm³ (I4 OHC). Zastava’s most ambitious car to date, with US$150 million development independent of Fiat, on a unique platform. Inoffensive, tidy Giugiaro styling gave Florida a contemporary look, unlike lesser Zastavas. Some Fiat parts, including headlights from the Croma. Dubbed Yugo Florida in its home market, and not Zastava; sometimes exported as Yugo Sana. Diesel and notchback planned, but not realized. Civil war interrupted production, while sanctions put paid to exports. Pick-up also created on Florida base from 1998. More luxurious Business model from 1999. Facelifted Florida In and In L models, with Peugeot 306 engine (1587 cm³), on sale in 2002. Quality was never up there, nor were interior materials, but Florida, like all Zastavas, sold on price, but even a cheap price could not keep its sales up. Penultimate Zastava car was a Florida; Nasr of Egypt also assembled the Florida for its market, with 45 per cent local content.

Manufacturing location: Kragujevcu, Yugoslavia (now Serbia)
