@dadasaheb The cheaper petrol (that actually sells in good numbers, unlike the expensive imported-engine tsi) is a 3-pot, i think, even now. Toyota's plans are great: they'll surely eat up Honda and Hyundai too (likely, though less so) i feel, once they realize these plans, over what?, 2-3 years. The same period that'll see, FCA's India plan says (if one wants to believe it): 2 all-new Fiats, and several Jeeps, including at least one CKD and at least one locally manufactured. What's funny is that even they, by far the world's biggest and most profitable car firm, have been, and remain.....'slow' in India. How many years has the dated, obsolete Innova and even Fortuner already spent? How many years before Toyota's C1/C2 hatch+sedan finally arrive? Their engines are awfully dated too, esp the diesels, big or small, as is their pricing, and yet they've sold well and command tremendous trust, though I have to point out they made about 200 crores of losses last financial year, which is why they now export many more Etios-es than they sell here (as taxis). There's a reason for that: one that is the same 'conservativeness'/pessimism/timidity/skepticism, etc for which we berate Fiat. If even they have until now felt the Indian market's dodgy and very difficult to manage (witness their utter failure with the Etios twins, though it seems the Cross sells well), in its value-calculus,.....what chance Fiat?
