I may sound pessimistic here and I would love to be proved wrong but I don't think this is going to do good for Fiat. To keep normal entry level sedan buyers interested they should have priced it a little lower. It's a tough job but that's it. Unlike earlier now people love to own top end models rather than base ones(at least in kerala). You see more highlines of vw, astas of hyundai, emotions of fiat, and even more zdi or zxis of newer suzukis. If a buyer can get a fully loaded amaze or dzire for the price of a classic they would be inclined to it. More features, power, newness, better service expected and better resale at smaller size. I do agree about the dynamics and build of the linea but for most it doesn't matter. What about cabbies? They too would wait. Unsure service , resale, spares etc being problems. Still the only place where classic can do better would be as a cab. And for the linea, since the new one is very similar to classic, brand image of the car would be worsened and would affect the sales as I don't think the 1.6 is coming. Fiat and me myself seems to be unsure about their strategy. Although I love my linea and fiat I am not too happy about the way Fiat India thinks and would think a lot before investing in a fiat any more unless they have an idea where they are heading to. I have been waiting for the past 10 years to see this brand take off. I have played my role as well to support them by buying palio and linea and making my relatives to go for fiats. But after seeing all this now I feel disappointed.As I said earlier, I want to be proved wrong. Just hoping that Fiat won't loose its charm when competitors such as vw are coming with more powerful products.
