    If 145 bhp with no turbolag is still not enough to generate sales, then Fiat can utter a few blasphemies and leave India. Everyone always complained about no power in Fiats. The suspension has been reduced a bit, stiffened and tuned to be the best handling car in India with all the power everyone ranted about. So now let's see if people were just complaining or if they will bite.

    @Vidhyashankar Kannan Complain karne wale always complain karenge. Maybe the lack of a rear view camera or small bottle holders. I mean the Creta has that :p .

    However just once the pricing needs to be spot on - and some more advertizing please (Indian style).

    @Raj_pol : Agreed. If people are just averse to it, they will make reasons to complain. And if people love a brand, they will even forgive the fact that it is fairly unsafe in an accident. Yes, the small bottle holders and lack of a camera will be negative points. The Creta has everything possible in the interiors except the kitchen sink.

    Yes, the pricing has to be spot on, that's the whole trick now. Advertising? We've bleated enough. I hope FCA does something good on this front.

    Will the Abarth's sell out of Fiat Showrooms or will they have their own ? Need some new energy, the same old fiat salesmen will not inject any energy in to this and cannot to justice to such unique models. Even if it is the same showrooms , At least the sales folks who handle this product have to be different, extremely well informed and someone who can demonstrate how the Abarth is much more than a Fiat, with some solid mechanicals derived out of Fiat

    the 2 -din touchscreen should be made as a standard in Abarth Evo. The mass need feature rich car. Hope FCA understands it soon.

    The Linea Elegante has a touchscreen. Hopefully it is carried over to this one too.

    In addition to this the showroom people should also be seriously pumped up to boost the sales. But sadly it is not happening in most dealers. Today I called up a Fiat SA to ask about linea elegante. But he was completely unaware of its launch nor he seems to be too enthusiastic about today's historical events at Buddh international circuit. The efforts of sales team contributes a lot to the number of footfalls in the showrooms. And the sales people should be technically sound as well as aware of the current scenario in the Indian auto industry.Seriously, Fiat should provide an android mobile to each of them and strictly instruct them to be glued to TFI during their free time when there are no customers.:banghead:This will bring out the Fiat enthusiast in them.:D
    Cheers

    guys,

    be proud of fiat because Punto Abarth is going to be the only performance hatchback for the masses in 10 lakh bracket.
