That would NOT be a nice move from Fiat, imagine the people who will buy this car now, and some time later realize, another version comming with stuff they always wanted in the first place, but had no say.

doesnt sound like a nice idea, if some other manufacturer does it, would most probably get away, but Fiat's reputation being what it is currently, i think will things worse for them.

Where did you get that information.There is an excise duty cut of 18k on the diesel but no offers at any dealership across the country.Please dont make such confussing statements.

@jerish666. I have been in Europe for the better part of the decade and driven a whole range of FIAT especially as they are popular rentals, excellent cars. The flavour of my topic was in jest, but i guess you did not catch onto that..
Next time you put a smiley face.Really i didt get you .

The fiat-india site posts more details on Stile MJD.
The site seems to be under upgradation as some of the pictures/graphics are out of place.
Anyhow a welcoming effort from FIAT..... considering the fact that they had a history of having the most down-time website in indian auto industry

This is good news I feel it will create more sales for Fiat. I am impressed by Safety features and smart solutions provided by Fiat. Swift is missing lot of features compared with Pailo.

There is 1 lac INR price difference between Petrol and Diesel Palio.

I wish good luck to Fiat.

Regards,

Ravi.

Fiat build is a notch higher than MSIL, and they have some amount of damping as well so in car engine noise would be less I reckon.

Are these ex-showroom or on-road prices? No indication of anything in the site...
