    You dont know how much respect you get when you drive around in an SUV, no one bother to bully you on the road, give you space if you honk/ flash lights and the high stance of seat from where you drive will give a commanding position and we feel like king of the road. NOTHING can beat that supreme feeling :rage During long drives, driver fatigue will be much less than driving a hatch !

    Atleast I never yield way to any party flagged SUV's nor any SUV for that matter. However I don't understand how Fatigue is less with SUV's because of driving stance, I drove an Innova for about 1800 Kms and felt really tiring even though the seating position is really good. You can't drive it like a hatch and maneuvering it through corners is one hell of a job

    the 1.6 engine with 290nm torque will do good in the 500X

    I think Panda 4X4 and Freemont are the capable product in Indian Market. Panda will create new segment if they launch it as SUV and I dont need to give explanation of Freemont.
  5. Does New Panda comes with 4x4 and is it capable of off roading like the old one ???

    "Fiat will not venture into higher segment cars as our specialization thrives in the B & C segments, and would like to continue domination in the same sect." - Enrico Atanasio

    Why Fiat is not bringing the 105 BHP version of 1.3 MJD. Is it because of fuel quality in India?

    Fiat does not have a higher segment car even in Europe. The one's that they did launch like the Croma failed miserably. Even Alfa Romeo today has just 2 car's - both are hatchbacks. Typical management & marketing speak (read bull....) being dished out here.

    Anyway, we are fine with B & C segment cars but the least Fiat can do is improve the engine's (1.6L Linea & Punto 1.4 TJet for Punto) & gearboxes to spice up their performance.
