    nk4FIAT Superiore

    I think FIAT never launched a SUV class in India. All their models were mini hatchback (Uno/Palio/Punto) or sedan (Linea).
    Its a high time to launc this SUV like model to give tough competition to Toyota/GM/Tata/Maruti/Hundai SUVs.
    Indians will luv to see such a rugged and strong SUV from FIAT !!!
    It will give much better response than Bravo.

    Right said, let the FIAT launch the SUV's, like Freemount or the Palio Adventure (which is a hit in Brazil) let them get it on order and Indians are ready to buy it, We the Indians would not consider money if we get the great taste of these Beauties.

    Fiat Freemont: Is this suitable for India?

    Fiat is all set to unveil the Freemont SUV at Geneva Motorshow in March – its first product that is a result of the Fiat – Chrysler JV. The SUV will be on sale in Europe by the beginning of June this year.

    Fiat Freemont

    The Freemont is a 7 seater SUV built on the Dodge Journey platform. Fiat has slotted its own engine under the bonnet – a 2.0-liter MultiJet turbo diesel with 140 or 170 horsepower. Initially the SUV will only be available in front wheel drive but a four-wheel drive and auto-equipped 168bhp model will follow suit.

    The SUV is equipped is equipped with:

    Active head restraints
    Electronic stability control (ESC) with all-speed traction control
    Electronic roll mitigation and brake assist
    New driver-side knee blocker airbag
    Supplemental side-curtain airbags covering all three rows
    Supplemental front-seat-mounted side airbags
    Our’s-wheel anti-lock disc brakes
    LATCH child seat anchor system
    Trailer sway control.
    This SUV is (as of now) only limited to US and Europe. But Fiat needs a SUV under its portfolio in India. After all, all the major manufacturers have got one already under their sleeves.

    Fiat Freemont

    Currently, Fiat India only has 2 products under its portfolio – Linea and Punto. Clearly, a portfolio which is this small in not a sign of a company that wants to play in the long run.

    And considering Fiat’s plans of establishing a fully dedicated sales network India, a SUV like the Freemont must find its way pretty soon.
