So you mean 30K extra for CD/MP3? That's crazy!

2. The price difference between Emotion and Emotion Pack is about 30K Petrol and 60K for MJD. The Optional features in Emotion listed on website are Steering Mounter controls, Blue&ME, Alloys, Airbags.

Just 30K/60K extra for all these extra features has to be a lottery.

Still confused!
Hi,
In dynamic it includes both CD/MP3 player and ABS+EBD.

In Emotion petrol we will get alloy as standard we dont have to go for emotion pack in petrol to get the alloys. Emotion pack for petrol would only include Steering Mounter controls, Blue&ME, Airbags

The emotion pack diesel will have alloys + Steering Mounter controls, Blue&ME, Airbags. may be the extra 30 k is for the alloys in emotion pack for diesel.

At the moment as per its broucher, only 4 colors are given:
Red
Grey
Champagne
Black

A Red color would do the job perfectly to attract - My view!

Music by Moby or Schiller or other Trance Gurus!

FIAT should also make a Bollywood celebrity a brand ambassador for its cars if it feels confident about its product like Hritik Roshan or Abhishek or Akshay kumar or Shahid. I would had loved to see Aamir Khan but he is already stuck with Toyota!

I am dissapointed with the GC 161mm for diesel. Its way too less. Apart from that looks VFM, rest the market will decide. Its do or die for Fiat this time

+1. I also have concerns for the GC, combined with increased wheelbase. I think that our Indian Speed breakers will for sure kiss Linea's underside very very often.

From the above list, not only Aamir but Abhishek also did it for Fiesta!

But, the ongoing recession has made new cars appear w/out Bollywood stars. Hyundai managing it for i20 sans Shahrukh ( Remember i10 ad ....oh he is still doing...proving kappa engine)

I am disappointed with the airbags avaliable only in Emotion option pack for petrol variant. It should have been standard from Dynamic variant. ANHC has airbags standard across the range.

Yea Fiat has neglected safety big time to cut on costs. ABS/Airbags should be standard across all variants. These could prove life (or even limb) saving in case of accidents.

That leaves the option to the buyer to decide if he / she could shell out money to save lives and limbs of his family.

All features at this price??? Impossible!!!

Default Attitude change

Waah,kya baat hai. What an attitude change.
Just called rama motors, okhla phaseII. The information wasn't great.
I told them i was interested in the petrol version but would test drive the diesel as the petrol isn't available. Got nothing in return. The call was transferred &...

Sir we'll send the car over, your address please, dayafter tomorrow. Right sir.
This impressed me, I've heard this is fiat's policy but it makes you feel really good.
I asked again, will the petrol be available, sir, we'll get back to you with that information.
ps- is the petrol available for test drive?
else i'll go for the diesel, i'm more interested in checking out the suspension,seating,space etc.

Like many other manufacturers, Fiat prefers to screw the rear centre passenger by not offering a 3-point ELR seatbelt. Three headrests? Yes. Three 3-point belts? No.

Meanwhile, the new i20 seems to offer equal safety protection for all five passengers. Unless I'm mistaken, all passengers receive 3-point ELR belts as standard. And customers have the option of pretensioners, ABS, and six airbags. Hopefully, it does well on the EuroNCAP test later this year unlike the Sonata's lousy results in the IIHS side impact test.

FIAT provides an option for people to pay and get one. Its for people to decide if their life is worth the extra amount.

You should probably point this frustration to companies like Hyundai - who after charging a ridiculous 10L OTR for Verna CRDI - doesn't even provide an airbags option. How lame is that?
