It is not only Fiat but even Scoda seems to have poor numbers even after the launch of the New Octavia and having lot more product diversity and having a 1.6 litre engine which everyone here is asking. A normal car buyer does not go in-depth into the engine capacity or BHP since technically Ecosport, Dezire and host of other cars has similar or less power. What they care about is Resale value since most of my friends whom I had persuaded to take a look into a Fiat finally bought a Maruthi purely from a Resale point of view (They loved everything from the Thud, Engine,Space, Pedals..etc) since being in IT one has no clue if he/she would be in same city for any fixed amount of time and moving between cities with RTO rules is not an appealing prospect. Fiat is worth peanuts in Re-sale market and with our mentality of Car being an investment does not help matters. The only people who buys Fiat's are people who can either keep the car with Family when moving outside the state or with deep pockets , preferably both :evilsmile. So while 1.6 MJD might move the sales of Linea at-least to some 600 from the current 300 it is not going to be the Dezire of the market without which economies of scale would not work in favour of the car or the manufacturer.
