    Still with in 100BHP engine for bigger car like linea. Why FIAT why. Atleast 110BHP would do a lot good for Linea.

    93 HP is better than 75.

    Posts related to the rumored 1.6 import by Maruti moved to the OT thread. Let's keep this thread for discussing FIAT future plans rather than what Maruti is alleged to be doing. :)

    Thats a drastic change in the otherwise barren looking showroom when I had gone past it a few days back. I hope the opening of this showroom will revive Fiat cars in the Mumbaikar's minds.

    Very true!

    When it comes to styling and classiness, there is no other car in this segment and a little higher which can come even close to Linea. I fell for her charisma and made the purchase :D. Now Fiat is making a totally self destrutive move. They have degraded themselves! I feel sorry that they dont know the value of their own car, Linea. Now this is called bad strategy. Feels like they are desperate for money. They want just sales - not value! Sad.

    PS: This car still makes me smile everyday morning when I first see her.

    The car shown here is Fiat Viaggio

    Refer to the below link:

    And by the way, according to me, the new fiat linea facelift looks bad. The beauty of linea is in its minimalism and the new design just add too much noise to it.
