Now, where did this 1.3 MJD come from? From what I heard, Fiat is not releasing this in India. Is there a change of plan?

I dont know about Adventure.. Its purely my opinion that they should bring the MJD in Adventure and should relaunch it..

Well even if Fiat release Palio MJD its going to be hell costly as other Fiat products specially the parts will cost bomb and the aam janta will again give the same comments "yeh to Safed haathi hai" (this is white elephant will cost bomb to maintain )


(the reason I m saying this bcoz i own a Fiat siena and believe me each and every parts which needs to replaced costs hell compare to other cars in class)

Palio, Petra and Adventure shares many parts... According to the study conducted by ACI few months before, Swift was the costliest affair.. Palio parts (And so Petra and Adventure common parts) are cheap as compared to Swift.. So I do not think FIAT parts cost a bomb... It is only the parts availability issue so far with people...

@ Neoonwheels - The Prices of Fiat parts has come down quite alot. When the Sienna was launched the spares very very expensive.

I dont know about newer Fiat range but whenever there is something to replaced in my Siena I had to shell out like Rs. 4,500 per Fuel injector, Tail lamp asmbly costing Rs. 2500., Fuel pipe costing Rs. 1,800., Brake liners (rs. 2000) wheel cylinder (each 1500 - 2000) , timing belt (Rs.5,500), spark plugs(set of 4 for Rs. 1200) and when you go through service centers the prices climbs up. ofcourse you can buy cheap China & Taiwan Fakes available in Chor bazaar.

someone from FIAT had told me that by feb the MJD will be lauched on the Palio. the question is that the price has still not been finalized. this will take a while and also it will be closer to the launch date.
I guess people can expect this at the AutoExpo stall.
