maybe Fiat is trying to establish itself among the premium brands in India.

They seriously need to look into that before they launch this array of cars. Tata might help them with service but even they'll be helpless about the price and supply of the spare parts of Fiat cars.

I believe, Fiat has started gearing up in India with the launch of Bravo and 500. I dont have much details, but it is now available on Fiat India

I hope Tata-Fiat alliance is going to provide good competition in the market. I wish all the very best to Fiat.

In ACI survey, FIAT has come up very high on spares prices compared to all its competition.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...-expenses.html (ACI 'Spare change' survey! Service and repair expenses?)

Think its more to do with the limited number they are doing. Might be more for the premium cars which could have even lesser targets.

Default FIAT and its cars

Guys the concorde FIAT showroom on Mysore road Bangalore recently went through a renovation so to mark the opening ceremony Fiat have brought in , yes you've guessed it right ,the bravo, punto, liena and the drop dead gorgeous fiat 500 ....the ceremony was on 21 and it was only for officials so public weren't allowed but it was open for the public today must tell you i am really impressed with all the cars , the 500 and and the bravo are only for true enthusiasts the liena looks CLASSY i loved its speedo and punto well i dont need to say anything about it all guys how good a car it is.

now comes the price and when will it be launched part..........i was disappointed at the fiat/tata officials coz none of them had any idea about the prising coz each one from the manager to the dealers were giving different prices, the manager said except for the 500 everything will be assembled here i i dont know how true this is , he said 500 would be around 14lakhs , bravo around 18lakhs the other two he was not sure he also said that liena and bravo will be launched first next punto followed by the 500.....i guess we should not believe ANYTHING until the cars are launched but one thing i am sure is the they will get the first booking form me and it will be the bravo i mean this car just blew me away especially the roof and the interiors it was swede leather......i will upload the pics in a day or two coz one of my friends has taken the camera until then cheers:

Awesome update, Chetan! Thanks!

I have been drooling over the Bravo too (registered with the fiat india website when they opened a section for Bravo - I'd have definitely tried if it was to the south of 15L. 18+ is too much for me :-( - But may be I can save for a year and then....
