We had an M800 and sold it because we thought we will buy Fabia for sure and there won't be place for two cars so we sold M800 in advance and now we are without a car.
Palio Stile 1.3MJD would be available in India Feb end/March first week as per the news confirmed by some of the tbhpians from the Fiat India officials. The delivery might get into a waiting mode with just 500 units/month as the sales target.

Default went carless now ...

guys,

i am also in the same situation after being shocked by the Skoda pricing. I had already sold my sole car believing in Skoda Fabia and with not so good reviews about the overpriced Fabia, I am desperately looking to buy a car. Palio MJD is one hope I have, but otherwise have to settle for Getz prime 1.1 if Palio takes a long time to come

The uglification of the Palio is on in full swing.

The Brazilian Palio comes with the new Fiat corporate grille. Somehow the design elements dont seem to be in sync with each other. Rear looks almost 800-ish.

What I would be interested to see is the interiors. The Stile's interior is just a carry-over from the siena days and looks totally outdated.

Well Fiat Stilo is bigger than Palio, they belongs to different segment. Fiat replaced Stilo in europe with New Bravo.
Good old strategy FIAT, one you are done with europian market dump it in thrid world countries.

I think these interiors are much better than the current ones in Palio Stile.
Hope there is some change in Palio MJD then the current Stile.

The Rear end looks pretty ordinary compared to the Palio pre-stile.

I think FIAT India is not going to launch the Brazilian version here. They will be selling Stile till 2010 after which they will be launching the all new Palio!!!
