Default Fiat lovers, choose your car

Its a good time to check what the people in team-bhp are aspiring for with respect to fiat cars. Now that fiat is really making the right moves and noises, the time is not far when perhaps they can regain a share of their lost pride and market.

I have given four choices of the most probably fiat cars that are going to make it into India very shortly. Vote for your pick to enable others to know your passion for fiats!

A Fiat Adventure with the 1.9 Multijet, with a bad roads kit. Outfitted like the first-gen Palio Adventure. Priced between 6-7.5 lakhs.

Having already owned a hot hatch (read red Swift), its got to be the blue Linea 1.9MJD with the turbine alloys for me!

But the million $ question remains by when can I expect?

Already have a sedan, the Petra. So, I just can't decide between the Grande Punto and the Bravo.

It will most probably be the Grande Punto 3 door.

Come think of it, it will be the Grande Punto 3 door.

I own a Fiat Petra D. I would love to upgrade to Fiat Linea Diesel. But i doubt Fiat India will bring the 1.9 l . I would settle for the Blue Linea 1.3 D.

I would like to have Bravo any day but the pricing is a big no no. So, next choice is Linea.

BTW, I voted for Bravo.

I'd take the Fiat 500 Abarth with the 155ps turbo petrol. That is if it ever comes to india.

Fiat Grande Punto is my choice for a great combo of style & power. When released I think it'll be the most stylish hatch on indian roads - which means I really dont think many people will buy the Bravo & 500 at these high prices.

I would love to drive a Fiat 500. But realistically I am waiting for Grande Punto 1.3 multijet 90bhp (VGT). I hope this engine is offered in India. Because I have read that Fiat doesn't offer this engine in UK.
