    FIAT and Maruti Extend Engine supply agreement.

    [SUP]Not sure whether this agreement will hold good for three long years. I am sure this can be cut short when Suzuki's own engines replace the engine bay's of suzuki cars. Also not mentioned whether there will a supply of any other variant of engine such as Multijet II etc.[/SUP]

    Yes, Fiat should definitely sell their engines to Whosoever wants them. After all its a business strategy. But it is a high time that they start advertising this as a FEAT. I dont know may be there might be some clause where fiat cannot advertise but the norms have to modified if required.

    IMO it won't affect general customers. Indian customers while buying car see car as entire package by three factors average,resale,service and neighbor/cousin's opinion!. It really doesn't matter to them what goes under the hood. Dell Laptops are very popular but Dell doesn't manufacture most of those stuff. They do excellent assembly and give perfect 24x7 support most of the time.

    The VW stake in under arbitration, and a cecision is due by the end of the year. I am betting that FiatChrysler will buy VW's 19% share if the the arbitration goes Suzuki's way. Am basing this on the repeated claims by FiatChrysler people that they are interested in partnering with the smaller Jap firms in Asia. They already have joint projects with Mazda and Mitsubishi. Moreover, the Japanese business press has apparently of late been talking about FiatChrysler buying a big stake in Suzuki, only pending the arbitration award.

    Good, if the deal went through. But, I didn't like the idea of cars rebadged as a Suzuki in India instead of a FIAT. I want the FIAT badge in my car and not a 'S'. To me FIAT feels more upmarket and premium than a Suzuki.

    Well, it will be a win-win for both, Fiat as well as Suzuki.
    Fiat India - we all know why.
    For Suzuki - I doubt apart from India, if they are major player in any other region. :confused: So good for them too, as fiat-chrysler is quite a big name.
