  2. Is there any truth in the below statement,is this the reason why FIAT chose TATA?
    Tata motor shares of Daimler has been transferred to fiat and chrysler. perhaps fiat is the biggest share holder in tata motors holding more shares than tatas this is the reason for much higher and much deeper relationship. if i am wrong please correct me

    Linea 1.3
    Grand Cherokee and Wrangler will enter India by end of 2013 for sure.

    From Fiat, it may be the long awaited small car and Abarth (but who's gonna buy this apart from few enthusiasts?).

  5. AutoCar India mentions there will be a updated Punto/Linea in 2013.

    "Kicking off the new model onslaught will be an updated Linea saloon and Grande Punto hatchback in 2013. The two cars already received a facelift earlier this year, and the update next year will include cosmetic changes to both with revised front and rear styling, new alloy wheel designs and a thorough re-working of the interiors.

    This came in Top Gear India today.......

    If yesterday's announcement of Fiat's big plans for the coming years wasn't enough, we’ve come to learn from reliable sources that Fiat is all set to launch the all-new 500 L MPV next year as well. Though it looks like a bigger version of the cute 500 hatchback, the MPV is actually based on an extended Punto platform.

    Fiat bosses have decided to launch it in the middle of 2013, just around the start of the new financial year and after the financial budget. The most likely engine for the car will be a 1.3-litre diesel Multi-jet unit with 90bhp (the same one that powers the diesel Ertiga and Fiat’s own Linea saloon). Fiat is currently working on this engine to improve its fuel efficiency, low-rev response as well as refinement. The other engine could well be a 1.4-litre, 94bhp petrol.

    It is still not clear whether the MPV will be sold in its Euro-spec five seat version to take on the Renault Duster, or will the wheelbase be extended to add two extra seats and make it a seven-seater Ertiga-rival. Chances are strong of it being the latter though. At 4,140mm length, 1780mm width and 1660mm height, it is wider than the Ertiga but marginally shorter.

    Since it will be based on the Punto platform, it will share a lot of components with the hatchback, which should help keep the price down. Just like the Ertiga, the 500L should appeal to city commuters with its light controls and high set seats that give a commanding view of the road ahead.

    The car offers practicality too. The rear seats all slide back and forth, and split-fold 60:40, too. Owners will also be able to fold down the front passenger seat and there are 22 different storage spaces around the car’s cabin. There’s up to 400 litres of storage in the boot with the rear seats pushed forward.

    If Fiat can price it right, then the 500 L should retail at around Rs 10 lakh for the diesel versions base model. This could be Fiat’s big ticket return, right TopGear.commers?

    Linea 1.3
    Major Update needed from FIAT in 2013 is the :-

    1. New Small Car:- Yes, launch Palio first again with 1.3 FGT within 3.5-4.5 ex showroom price in 2013.
    3. Punto/Linea - If they have decided to launch current Linea as Classic, please bring 1.6 MJD in Classic linea in 2013.
    Refresh the interior quality of Punto & Linea. We are sure Fiat can refresh their interior without any issue and within 2013 without any major roadmap- Replace the current vendor and tell strictly to new vendor for quality interior as VW.

    As per their plan what we can assume Viaggio will come as New Linea and it need the 1.6 MJD-VGT and 1.4 TJET(with 120BHP) Power at least.

    The new small car could be Uno or panda right. Heard rumors that it is panda though.
