    The pricing though in the territory, the Classic should have been priced a little lower to make more people sit up and take notice. Atleast this makes them include the classic into consideration when buying a new car in this segment.

  4. Although the car looks very good , I hope that it has better quality of products like door latches, shocker mounts, dashboard paint unlike the 2010 multijet.

    Not impressed with the pricing. They would have to undercut the competition to make throbe the showroom.

    Anyways Indian public is unpredictable and this may click as week. Once the discounts kick in this should be VFM.

    A great move by Fiat once again.Pricing is spot on but they could have undercut rivals to get more customers to their showrooms:p

    No ABS on classic is a let down. Fiats are known for their ride and road presence, omission of such a feature is unexpected if fiat.
    If the classic+ costs 9 lacs OTR, what's the point in launching a new car when customers already had a choice of buying a Linea Active at almost the same price with a 90 HP mill under the hood!

    Even Flamenco RED should be made available! That was the very first colour that made many to fall for the Linea at the time of launch in 2009!

    - That's an indication of possible re-working of the gear-ratios!

    - 76PS/ 197NM : 197NM, probably this could be the best tuned MJD with FGT. The best in the competition, the rest come with ~190NM (not sure of the Sail sedan)! Except for the Amaze with larger displacement & power.


    Now I seriously feel, the kerb weight of Classic would be lesser than the current Linea as it's stripped from many features; and this could very well, improve the ''performance''!

    Hope, Classic would never be called 'sluggish'!

    Hats off to FIAT INDIA!!! Wish they had priced it less than 40-50K! :rolleyes:
