    Few months back we use to hear that Punto will be launched with Linea interiors but now it's reversed:eek:

    Instead fiat should have launch panda competing with alto,i10.

    Fiat doesn't need enemy from outside.

    I made this GIF of Vilas Naik at work yesterday at the Classic Launch event.

    In keeping with the theme of the event, Naik expressed the desire of not settling for less through the creative medium. To set the stage for this , he first completed the four individual frames which were almost completely painted beforehand and he put the finishing touches on it.

    1. The top left frame was a ring and the audio played along it said "Why settle for a diamond when you can have a solitaire?" (Their words)
    2. The top right frame showed a house and Naik painted a pool in front of it , again stressing the "not settle for less" theme.
    3. The bottom left frame had a guy watching a LCD TV. Naik painted a huge theatre screen on it, again on the same theme - don't settle for less.
    4. The bottom right frame is a person's success graph sort of, with the same intended meaning.

    Afterwards, he first painted a hatch and later, not being satisfied with just a hatch and keeping with the theme, created the Linea out of it.

    Ummm....just a hatch? No, I want more.

    Here's what i want and I wont settle for less !

    This is the combined GIF file of all the images. It is 20mb so it might take a while to load. Be patient ;)

    For anybody complaining about Classic being overpriced , you can probably rent out the space in those wheel wells on weekends and stuff and make a killing :D . I'm sure a small coffee shop or a small condo would fit in there nicely. Maybe the front for commercial and the rear for residential purposes :D

    " Time for next big move -- foray into entry segment


    I didnt find any one discussing about the above statement of Nagesh Basavanahalli. I feel that the next big launch will be a small car. If it is not a small car, then what does entry segment mean? It the first hint that we have heard. The dealers will not keep quiet if they dont have much to sell, and they would also like to have products that are easier to sell too and they need volume as much as the Fiats plant need. Even though Fiat has not mentioned any thing about new offerings other than New Linea and Punto refresh in their road map, I strongly feel that they have hidden this one. There is something going to surprise us for sure. Your thoughts.

    Abdul,

    The Linea Classic IS the "next big move" and it was mentioned at the launch event. The "previous" big move was the TATA-FIAT divorce, if you can call it that.

    Cheers.

    Panda is priced similar to Punto in UK, they can never sell it that price. It's criminal to ask so :D
