Initially I was in two minds over this concept of caffes but looking at the pictures I think its going to be a master stroke, Both places look grand. I dont know if their contract with TATA stops them from opening separate ***,
As a perspective buyer I for one would be much more comfortable with my car being serviced by FIAT technicians.
Waiting for the caffe to come to Mumbai.

The Fiat Cafe looks great! Any idea when is this coming to Hyderabad? Can't wait to get the service of my Punto @ Fiat's A.S.S. not the TATA's!

Looks like with the new job it would be sooner than later that I make it there. Planning to visit concorde and take a TD of the 2012 models... If I do make it to Pune with time to spare then for sure we'll visit the caffe...

looking forward to driving Padmini, last time was a disaster, lets hope second time lucky ...

Did any BHPian visit the Delhi Fiat Caffé with your valentine? If yes, please share the experience.

Ramesh, I remember reading on Fiat's brand Narendra Sharma's Facebook profile that Fiat Caffé at Pune will be opened shortly. He didn't mention the date, though.

Sorry for reactivating this old thread. The Fiat Cafe in Delhi ( CP outlet) has been shut down. Happened to cross that road and noticed the same. Have they shifted to some place else? Also what is the status of the other cafes in rest of the cities?

Bangalore FIAT Caffe (& Bar) is still operational. It's right outside my office campus. I guess they make more money as a caffe & bar, rather than selling cars.

However- the upmarket feel of the showroom and the prime location they have would have helped promoting the Abarth- had it been launched as scheduled earlier.

Yep it has been closed for a while now , 12 months atleast if i recall correctly , i got my car from there and a little after that they closed it. I do not think there is a Cafe status showroom in Delhi anymore. For that side of Delhi one has Kashyap in Okhla .

The relatively big sales & service centre in Okhla Phase III has also relocated to a nearby location - earlier a Hyundai service centre, which has less than half the space. Looks like FIAT is waking up to reality and cutting costs, as even the Avventura has been a flop - haven't seen even one on Delhi roads.

It is still within Phase 3 , the new space is smaller yes but now they have 2 places in Okhla - one is fiat and one is Multibrand.

The Fiat Caffe in Pune is very much in operation. A few days back saw couple of Avventura's parked outside the Caffe with cycles mounted on top, which certainly attracted a lot of attention.

They're probably realized that no matter how hard they try, it's difficult to shake off perceptions. If it was Maruti Punto/ Avventura, both would have set the sales charts on fire. At the end of the day, reliability matters.

I own a 2009 Punto 1.4 and love it to bits. But it's certainly not the 'logical' car in its segment. Although it pulls the strings to your heart like no other.
