Yes. Fiat had launched the 500 and Bravo in India in limited numbers only and unfortunately, only with the Multi Jet Diesel motors. While the 500 came with the exact same engine seen in the Grande Punto, the Palio, the Indica Vista and the Swift, the Brave came with a more powerful version of the MJD

P.S. That is a very nice Jaguar by the way. And that 350Z is nice too!

Wow!. A 'Z' and a 'Spyder' too!. The import scene is getting more interesting by the day.

I'm not entirely sure if it's a 1.6 or a 1.9. But it's definitely a bigger diesel motor with the same MJD technology.

The Bravo was indeed sold here but in very limited numbers. It was priced at 17.6 lakhs (ex-showroom - New Delhi) and was introduced only with the MJD engine. Both, the 500 and the Bravo, were introduced, for the sole purpose of resurrecting Fiat's hopes in India.

Yes you're right. It came with the 1.9 litre 150 odd bhp motor and that variant was introduced in India. Fiat managed to sell only 20 or 30 of them though.
