Nice looking car. Need to market it properly. There are many people (including me) who like Fiat but prefer to stay away just because of horror stories of service/spareparts. Fiat, are you listening?

All those , Who think that this a alto look alike, Below Image will help in differentiating Between the head lights of both cars. i see no comparison between a alto and a FIAT

As for build quality goes and call for light fiat;s ..ask the same question to somebody , who lost his near one in a car accident and could have survived with a better build car ..

For strange reasons i liked that modified Fiat Uno and I would love to see brand new Uno in the Indian roads. Btw, it seems that the car is a Brazilian Police Car

I hardly see any resemblance between the two cars.

Don't be offended but the Cayenne has been really criticized for it's looks internationally, and it does look terrible. The Punto, on the other hand, has always been reviewed in positive light for it's design.

Although I don't think the Uno's design is boring, I think it is quite ugly. So we definitely agree there .

Lighter does not mean less-safer, just like heavier does not mean more-safer. If that were the case, no one would ever die in a Fiat, but obviously that is not the case.

I agree, but than nothing is 100 % safe .solders die in armored vehicles as well ,point is to make things as safe as possible. remember the mumbai case of a skoda owner's Son , even 7 airbags couldn,t save him in a accident . obviously , build quality plays a role here .

As for fiat goes, everybody knows what happened to sid's punto and still everybody come out safe and sound ....

In Bold, absolutely bang on, perfect. Unfortunately it veers off course from there. Well built cars do make a difference.
