    A bit off topic but any news about the 500 Abarth that was supposed to be launched by year end.
    December is just round the corner and no news of it yet :(

    Fiat is doing early marketing and building up enthusiasm and then by the time actual product is launched, all vapor gets settled and no one cares about product. :(

    The complaint so far from our side was fiat not doing any pre launch marketing and doing silent launches, lets see how this makes a difference ! Well, this is how it should be done.

    Fiat should do a 'desi' version of this ad, say what? Not now but on the eve of the launch of the 2016 b-suv, once the new dealers and FASS are all ready and good? ;-)

    Fiat in India may be way-off the market-pulse, SUCH AS IT IS, but they sure have an awesome grasp of the product-spec-styling-niche-and-brand positioning in their core markets of the US+Canada, EU and LatAm.

    After the 500 and its innumerable versions being sustained hits, and doing well even in big-car markets like the US, after the segment-leader-in-Europe, the 500L, after the Abarth 500, and now the obvious sure-hits, the 500X and Jeep Renegade, comes this beauty: a retro-chic reincarnation of the BEAUTIFUL Fiat 124 Spider from the late sixties/early 70s. :):cool:

    To be made by Mazda, as a Fiat version of the famous, and new, Miata Roadster+coupe, with the t-jet multiair engine of course. And with an Abarth version too, presumably. Launching in 2015.

    A few design cues (front end) from the 1100 we knew so well, and liked so much, here in India, no?

    A thought: shouldn't Fiat try and stylistically quote itself, cite the 1100 or this 124 Spider, in the front design of the Indian avatar of the 2016 Linea replacement? Not out-and-out 'retro', just a quotation, a reminder of who's the boss when it comes to car designs! (i.e., the Italians and the French? NOT the Koreans or Japs) And of who's the more 'Indian' of the MNC car firms (NOT Maruti, Hyundai) in terms of age and market presence. ;)

    Two Frenchmen, 'Parisiens', one much older than the other, chatting, conversing about their 'little observations' about the 500X (with talk of the Jeep Renegade, its sibling).

    Beautifully shot and edited: a stylish and conversational (i.e., French! Italian?) way of reviewing in detail this beautifully chic new car, very Franco-Italian in inspiration/funda of course.

    Even without understanding the language (which I happen to, somewhat, enough) one really cannot help appreciating this stylish, slightly discerning/artsy albeit unpretentious, and very urbane way of reviewing a car, including the visuals and the editing. Tasteful!:cool:

    It's no wonder one finds, as a rule, Indian tv/video auto reviews to be plain clumsy, literal-minded, and ham-fisted (aside from usually being ill-educated and 'corrupt?')!:inpain::stop:

    Beautiful car, very! :joyful: Here's hoping....:p (and the Jeep Renegade too!)
