Nice, they have managed a pretty sweet job with matching retro + modern looks. I especially like the interiors....very reminiscent of how things used to be in the good ol' days.

Nope. Even if Fiat India were to price it at a lac, their management skills would ensure its failure. Jokes apart, the high price tag would negate any potential in India.

A landmark car for landmark company, although I thought the 500 looked to be on the feminine side - with those round headrests and overal iinterior color scheme

I guess this is the car Fiat jointly developed with Ford (For the forthcoming new gen Ford Ka)

Ford and Fiat Team up on new Fiat 500, Ka - Jalopnik

here's a small pic of the KA

Ford Ka, Fiat 500 in latest issue of Autobild

However the Autobild site shows giberish

The Fiat 500 is brilliant in a way typified by their recent resurgence. They are back to building beautiful cars. Bravo Fiat! Now, IF only the Tata-Fiat combine can click!

It's a very cute car. But I loved the old one more.
No hopes of this coming to India unless VW brings in Beetle.

Very nice looking car. Love those interiors and that Fiat badge on the steering looks so retro. I dont see this one coming to India though.

Looks like a chick car to me. Pretty rounded though.
Imagine how it's convertible version would look like.
