The SEAT Fura is a supermini produced by Spanish automaker SEAT, based on the Fiat 127 which had been built by SEAT since 1972. Once the license to the 127 expired, SEAT was forced to develop a new version with a new name, which was introduced in late 1981 for the 1982 model year. Production ended in 1986. The Fura is a rebadged version of the Fiat 127, available in three and five-door hatchback bodystyles. The two and four-door sedans were discontinued. The Fura was never available with the larger 1,010 cc unit seen in the SEAT 127, but did receive a five-speed manual transmission as standard.
After a 1983 facelift the SEAT Fura Dos (two) was introduced: it doesn't differ much from its predecessor, mainly through smaller headlights and turn signals. The launch of the SEAT Ibiza MK1 in 1984 made the car largely redundant. For about 1–2 years these compact hatches were competing internally within the company and the Fura had to go.
A hot hatch called the Fura Crono was introduced early in 1983. Fitted with spoilers front and rear, as well as twin foglights up front and unique 13" alloy wheels, it was powered by a 75 horsepower (56 kW) 1,438 cc four-cylinder. The twin-carb engine provided a top speed of 160 km/h (99 mph) and the 100 km/h sprint was managed in 10.8 seconds.
