Hey friends...
Fiat released the 2004 Multipla which is supposed to be a better looker than it's predecessor. Fiat can probably launch the Multipla MPV in the C-segment here in india giving buyers a totally new and different option and variant in the C segment. With proper 3 seats in front and innovative interiors, the Multipla sure can do what the siena failed to for FIAT. What say?
P.S. I wouldn't mind going for a really looooooooooong drive in the Multipla if the lovely lady in the pic comes along!

FIAT was supposed to launch the Multipla 2 years back. The projec was shelved and then they were plans for the Doblo. That project has also been scrapped. Anyways both those cars looked ugly. The new Multipla however looks good.

The new Multipla certainly looks better than the old one but whether it will work is doubtful because of Fiats image here in India. They better change their image if they have to launch new products .

Cheers

Well, atleast the new Multipla looks much better than the old one. Fiat could even try out the Panda in the Indian market.

Better looking than its predecessor, yes.

But it is still awful!

P.S. Did you know Michael Schumacher owned a Multipla for its practicality?

Multipla was voted by BBC Top Gear as the car of the year a few years back when it was launched. A xtremely practical car which i feel will appeal to the practicality seeking indian car buyer provided of course that fiat improves it 's image and learns to market it's products well.
