Default Fiat Bravo and Fiat 500 anyone?

The details on the FIAT India website. There is one option to register and 'express interest'
As per website, Models coming soon: Fiat Linea and Grand Punto.

Excitement just continues!

Wish we could get some pricing details.

Bravo is surely looking good.
Available in a sparkling, high-performance 1.9 Ltr Multijet engine that delivers an awesome power of 150 bhp at 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 305 nm at 2000 rpm.

the pictures still feature the LHD version car. I think it will take time, but it works as a hook.

I think the Fiat 500 was supposed to be priced at 11 lakhs. I know the price doesn't make any sense but Fiat isn't anyway looking for volumes here, it would be more of a style statement to those select few who'd want to stand out from the crowd. Probably, you'd see a lot of woman celebrities picking one up

The Fiat Bravo on the other hand, I really hope they get the pricing right ... this could be their best bet to redeem themselves in our Indian market. The Punto, Linea and now the Bravo ... it's about time

There was a news in todays Hindu that Bravo and 500 will come through the CBU way. If that is the case, chances are that the price of the 500 can be well above 8L.
I am eagerly waiting for an Abarth 500

I think the best bet for fiat to capture a market share is to come out with the Palio 1.3 MJD. And possibly a Palio Sports with ABS / EBD /1.9 MJD .


Once they get some serious volume of sales, would be much easier to sustain the higher end items

Fiat will never launch the 1.9L engine in the Palio or GP, if it ever comes then in the Linea(chances are bleak)

I guess it is 120% right now. Will have to wait and see whether our FM wants to modify it in this year's budget.

I guess Fiat should have gone the CKD route, at least for the Bravo.
