    ^^ small correction it is 116 not 125 as of now.
    before somebody fire on me the source of information is fiat website and link is http://www.fiat-india.com/find-a-dealer/.
    If we take november figure they sold around 1300 and it will come at average of 11 cars.
    oh my god some miracle should happen to save them from closing.

    There are several in a soft-launch phase before 'coming out' fully. e..g., Austin Fiat in Kolkata spent over 2 months kind-of 'open' (both sales and ASS) before the formal launch of the dealership (recent news from the last 2 months). The same might be true of the new Guwahati dealer+FASS. etc

    ^^ by seeing above post i have been reminded of popular phrase "yatha raja tatha praja":D.
    Fiat is slow in bringing the products and dealers are competing with Fiat in opening showrooms :hilarious:.

    Comparing sales figure of Fiat with that of Maruti is not fair. Just look at the substantial product portfolio of Maruti or Hyundai.
    Now what do Fiat have ? Just 3 cars ? Forget Linea classic. More sales derive from more choices coupled with brand reliability. Increasing dealership is one way to gain customer confidence but will those dealerships sustain in the long run ?

    By the way, S-Cross is coming. It's sure Maruti will price it aggressively causing a big dent in Avvy sales. And that's the winning strategy. As soon as Maruti smells a Crossover wave, S-cross is there. Oh boy !..they are just unbeatable.

    But here's the funny part, both about Fiat and maruti: the ORIGINAL crossover both in Europe and (almost) in India was the SX4/Fiat Sedici. Not only did Fiat not launch it here, Maruti wasted it by launching it in sedan form (which did poorly, of course). Meanwhile the Scorpio, and then the Duster and then the Ecosport have sold lakhs before...the Avventura's and the SX4 Cross' actual arrival.

    It's great for Fiat that Maruti is adding this CUV and another in 2016 (XAlpha): demand for mjd engines will stay high or even increase despite lower petrol prices. And in the process we could finally get the 1.5/1.6 mjd which would've been unviable to manufacture without Maruti volumes?

    and if they ever decide to bring a bigger engine, I do hope it will be Fiat specific at least for a few months

    It never going to happen because SX4-cross is coming with 1.6 and will be launched around march-15 and also ertiga with 1.6 testing is happening and will be launched soon and Fiat will happily supply engines and next year we can read Fiat is in profits in spite of no car sales:banghead:

    SX4 cross with 1.6 that means Lineas will be getting 1.6 silently. Fiat is silent player in India. :) Fiat want to surprise all reviewers, so called auto-enthusiasts who are always blaming for under powered engine & bla-bla. :joyful:
