A new face lift is very much needed for Linea and Punto to generate public focus again on fiat cars. With the existing sales it is very difficult, but not impossible. The biggest hurdle for Fiat will be VW because VW cars will be an alternate for Fiat cars because more or less they also concentrate on the strong points of Fiat cars where Japanese and Korien's miserably fail. I think this may be the reason why Linea sales has dropped. Even though Fiat cars are better than VW cars in most of the aspects Germans have superior marketing tactics. Another success of VW was that they took risk in sticking for quality than features, which has clicked in India. Now they are bringing out more features step by step. But Fiat has gone other way. They had features but their quality was not equally good in different aspects. they are solid cars with superior driving dynamics but their painting jobs, plastics qualities are not up to the mark. More over so many niggling issues like clutch slave cylinder failure, left pulling, AC problems etc etc eclipsed all positive qualities of the Fiat cars.
