    I think what Clinton meant is one of these Jeep models (there are more than six actually) is going to be introduced in India by Fiat as they own majority stake in Jeep's parent Chrysler now.

    Let all rest be kept aside for the time being,
    Let the FIAT-INDIA force tata to have a separate showrooms for Fiat cars with the service bay attached to it, and watch the sales climbing.......

    It seems there is a new exclusive FIAT showroom coming up at jublie checkpost (app labs building) Hyderabad in another couple of months.

    Variants for Punto in 2012.

    Only 3 variants for Diesel punto

    Active,Dynamic and Emotion.

    Active will have features from Dynamic, Dynamic -> emotion, Emotion -> Emotion pack.

    Emotion pack is out. don't know the details about the pricing.

    Arun .... are you sure? Could you please tell me the source you got information from.

    I work in the building right behind the Applabs building. As far as I know, before I came to Netherlands SBI bank's branch was being planned in that building. I have asked one of my colleuges online just now and he says that he is not sure about Fiat, but SBI has already opened a branch there.

    We already have Varun Maruthi, Lakshmi Hyundai and Harley Davidson. A Fiat showroom would be too good to have on that road.

    I spoke to Bhanu ... Exclusive FIAT showroom is coming up by FEB 2012 ... its in the same lane...

    Service for FIAT cars will still be given from Tejaswi(Hitechcity)... only Sales part has been moved ...

    Oh ... so it will be more of shifting Tejaswi's Fiat Showroom then. I was expecting a new branch.

    The main advantage of Fiat with Tejaswi Motors (was) is that it is near Hi-tech city. Many of the IT guys will find it on their way to work and might just peep in to have a look. I believe, thats how many IT people end-up buying Fiat from Tejaswi Motors. I am not sure how many of them would be even intrested to come all the way to Jubilee Hills to check out the vehicles. I wonder why they want to shift. I wish they had a Fiat Caffe in Jubilee Hills rather than a dealer's showroom.

    Yes . I also agree with Kiran. Tejaswi is at a prime location. They should open additional showrooms/service station alongwith existing showrooms. It will be a double benifit for FIAT.

    I have got some updates on the so called facelift :). Dealership training has already started and the TD vehicles are expected to be at the dealership by the end of this month. Thought I cannot guarantee on the reliability of the source, here are the key highlights of the update.

    - No changes planned on Punto (not even beige interiors).
    - No gearbox changes.
    - Linea 1.4 Fire and MJD will only undergo the changes.
    - Linea's GC will be increased to 185 mm.
    - There will be only 3 variants on Linea (Active, Dynamic, Emotion).
    - 36 new features are going to be added to Linea including rain sensing Wipers, leather seats, 16" wheels, etc.,
    - Linea Active and Dynamic will have 15" wheels and Emotion would have 16".
    - New features like Rain sensing wipers will be available from the base variant itself.
    - Linea MJD Emotion may cost 9.5L Ex-showroom Chennai (Will close to 11L OTR).
