    even the mustang which is going to be launched in europe is coming with the puny inline 4 rather than V8 to cope up with the stringent emission and efficiency norms which is rapidly changing towards a greener planet !! other than a few enthusiasts like us looking for more power would go for it, most others would only look at the mileage figures n turn against it if launched in india at a much more premium pricing, which would take it to the league of cruze et all !

    Bhatia Saaab should've given a better excuse for not launching the MUCH NEEDED 1.6 Multijet.

    There is no day and night difference between CO[SUB]2[/SUB] emissions and fuel efficiencies of the 1.3 and 1.6.

    Such lame answers these both are! Either he is trying to answer in smart way to avoid further questions or probably just some marketing gyan.

    So if the dealer doesn't stock them properly it lies on the customer to bang his head against the TATA Wall is it and keep calling Mangesh? It's the company which should drive the rules and not put the blame on the dealer.

    How is FIAT going to compete with most other players who flaunt sedans with bigger engines? Small engine is fine for the small car, but may not be for bigger (future?) sedans.
    Wondering who is doing the market study and analysis for FIAT India. Instead of meeting the requirements of the majority responding to surveys, FIAT should ideally cater for every one. Let 1.6 come to India. Let only those who want more power buy that. Others can be happy with 1.3 or even smaller.
    Ambiguous/unlear statment about Panda and Alfa romeo means that there are some plans or discussions at least, but they dont want to divulge it right now.

    Great detailed report Kiran.
    World is not moving away from Powerful engines. Fiat India is moving away from Powerful Engines. Such a Big Car Like Linea eagarly needed 1.6 MJD2. Why they are not realising the same. Competitors are growing like anything and they are going back.

    Correctly said Thulasi, Ask everyone ( linea owner) to choose between 1.3 MJD VGT & 1.6 MJD2 VGT, every one will opt for 1.6 MJD2. Are the strategy makers fool or not able to see the marketting situation.
    Linea is going down in sales chart and they have closed the production of 1.4 Tjet, and this statement fom Fiat India is really looking as they are throwing their own leg directly to axe.

    Anyways guys, so who all will be ordering the "contoured splash guards" ? Bhatia saaab mentioned we can order the parts as spares.

    A few must already be having plans of getting them painted in the respective colors?

    I will place order tomorrow in Tejaswi and will get painted the same with BNW in Malik Cars.

    Dropped the idea of Civic Mudflap.

    Yes, Thulasi, It was launched with 1.4L turbocharged engine producing 90Kw & 112 Kw power Chinese made engine ( not the multiair), No diesel as per my knowledge.
