    This piece is a riff off of a Hindustan Times article. Sounds about right to me, and quite fair rather than scurrilous, albeit in the mode of speculation and gossip. CarToq was closely associated with Fiat in the past, handling all their 'testimonial' youtube videos, for eg. Have been posting similar 'tragic' thoughts about the Fiat brand in India for too long now, already, based on similar (implied) 'analytics'.

    Unless the 500X could be brought here, sibling of the Jeep Renegade-like affordable b-suv that is surely going to follow the c-suv. More importantly: could be exported from here, rhd? Only plausible way imo to keep the good ol'brand alive and yet-true, in India? Interesting that the only Fiat model China will be getting for local manufacture in the future will indeed be the 500X, else it is ALL Jeep+Maserati+Alfa+Chrysler.

    There is a difference @prabhjot Fiat advertorial/promotional features were marked as promotional. I think after Roshun Poviah quit cartoq, they have become like any other car website and there have been articles promoting mainstream brands mostly. Earlier it was a pretty democratic forum where people used to share great insights, with some senior members contributing with articles.

    Therr is no dealer in Mumbai
    At least it would have increased the sale by 2%

    The Jeep one opening in in Mumbai in October, i think, will also be a FIAT dealership+ass, right from the outset.

    None in entire MP now. Will wait till April 2017 for GST based pricing and who knows discounts would be on offer too :)

    FCA will need to either make their own dealerships or have strong partner to start dealerships/service centres and improve coverage. Also, do some marketing about it.Fiat India's biggest problem is their utter lack of efforts in talking about themselves.

    ....and sales are up y-on-y, quite smartly too (in % terms, that is)! FIAT is the :zombie: automotive brand in India, growing, fast, tough, good-looking, saucy but/yet :dead:!
