@prabhjot, let me tell you what I think of this whole design issue. Take the Linea. From an aesthetic perspective, I believe the smooth flowing lines do resonate inside the cabin, particularly when looked at straight inside from the front. You can almost see the entire car frame wrapping itself around the cabin in the Linea from that view. But, but- the particularly thick frame lends itself useless when it comes to creating space for rear occupants. Here is where the staid looking Etios and Corolla and City score better. Now get behind the wheel, and the first thing that strikes me is the absolutely massive and solid feeling A-pillars guiding that raked in windscreen. Makes you feel inside a 1960s fighter jet cockpit. But just as in the case of the 1960s fighter jet, the side-to-side visibility is affected , especially on the twisties and in turning into narrow lanes. That A pillar can hide a small hatchback like an M-800/Alto at some angles, its that thick! In contrast, the other cars have a slightly better view, but a staid feel. Then there is this vexed right-left wiper-headlamp orientation. Moving on, I have never found this whole B&M thing very user-friendly, to be honest. And the access to the USB data on the smallish MID screen is just frustrating at times. It is so much better on my Micra for example, where you can view the entire folder at a glance, and its right on the HU. Agreed, its an Italian quirk, but should have been addressed in 2014 versions (apparently not!) . The Honda City has better head room in the rear, and also more legspace, and so does the Etios. Now let us take a look at the drive of a T-Jet from a newbie or MSIL-bred driver. Engage 1st gear with some difficulty because of the long clutch travel , then turn the heavy steering (if reqd) and the car takes a bit of a jolt if you disengage the clutch quickly. Well, continue to 2nd, and the car is utterly lifeless-30 kph, 1300 rpm, then you bring up the 3rd, the car seems to be pottering around at 40-50.When you push the accelerator past 2000 rpm suddenly the car goes 'wild' , nearly out of control and you have to brake quickly to avoid bumping onto the traffic ahead. Hell, where did that spike of power come from, you wonder. You see, the average Indian is bred on the 40kph-5th gear logic, or a linear 1500-3000 power delivery minus the spikes. It would be difficult for him (much less her) to control the power spikes in the 3rd and 4th gear, in moderate city traffic, coupled with a long hood , heavy steering ,long travel clutch and notchy-if-not-rubbery gearshift. Phew ! I am afraid that is more than the average desi driver can handle. Where does he have the time or the opportunity to savour the joy of driving? He would like a really butter smooth steering at all times, smooth accelaration, whisper quiet engine and light and deft responses in traffic. And when the fuel gauge slides down at a glacial pace, it brings a big grin on his face. Just like the Honda City, Verna or the VW twins in case of diesel (although they are noiser than MJD). There are several other points, but , ultimately ,Fiat has made the car purely from an experienced enthusiast drivers perspective, who doesnt mind the G-forces experienced at the sharp curves, the taut steering and suspension and a general fighter-plane like handling. And Indians are only beginning to "drive " cars, much less throw them around, fast and furious. Those interested in Aviation may recollect that during the early jet age, the British came up with the Vickers VC-10, a superlative design in many respects to the more popular Boeing 707/Douglas DC-8. It was not successful though. I see many parallels with the Fiat products story so far.
