Fiat Cars We Want In India | Top 5 Fiat Cars

Fiat Cars We Wish To See On Indian Roads

For decades, the 110 D, also known as the Premier Padmini in India, was linked with automobiles. It debuted in India in 1964 and ruled the roads for more than two decades. Several Fiat automobiles came and went along the route. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles also phased out automobiles in the country in 2019. Fiat, on the other hand, is no longer in business, but it is not forgotten. Let’s take a trip down memory lane and look at five Fiat automobiles we wish would return.

Fiat Siena

The Siena was released in 1996 as the sedan version of the Palio. Fiat revived the Siena in 2002, following the success of the Palio, which was credited with resurrecting Fiat’s fortunes in India in the early 2000s. The sedan is described as a luxury vehicle with “the best of Italian engineering, aesthetics, and safety,” according to the company. It had a wonderful design but a poor fuel economy, which is a regular problem with Fiat cars.

Fiat Abarth 595

As Fiat’s answer to the Mini Cooper, the sporty four-seater hatchback was launched in India in 2015. With a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine delivering 160hp and 230Nm torque, the Abarth 595 is cute but powerful. At its fastest, this small beast can attain a top speed of 209 kilometres per hour. It has 17-inch alloy wheels, a stylish bumper, and a spoiler, and costs Rs 29.85 lakh. Despite the swoon-worthy amenities, the hefty price turned off potential purchasers. Although the import was halted in 2017, we believe this is one Fiat model that deserves to be revived.

Fiat Linea

This car debuted in 2009 and received immediate acclaim for its design. It had the appropriate looks, and its 125hp, 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine was a selling feature. The car, on the other hand, fell short in terms of value for money and cutting-edge features. Despite its popularity, the Fiat Linea was unable to compete in the rising mid-size sedan market. Even if the facelifts did not help the Linea, it was withdrawn by the company. Fiat Linea, on the other hand, would make a terrific personal vehicle with an improvement in comfort and modern equipment.

Fiat Palio

The Palio was the car that propelled Fiat to success in India, with cricketer Sachin Tendulkar endorsing it. It was a tough hot-hatch with good appearance and a high comfort rating. However, fuel economy was an issue. It debuted in 2001 and enjoyed a long run before being phased out in 2010. It was affordable to the middle class, with a price tag of 3.49 lakh, but what worked against it in the long run was the loss of trust in the brand and its terrible after-sales care. The Palio should surely be reintroduced if Fiat decides to restore the little car.

Fiat Punto Abarth

This five-seater hatchback was developed in collaboration with Abarth. ‘The steering wheel isn’t only for steering, it’s for holding on,’ the manufacturer said when introducing the car. The Punto was created for the adventurous, with power steering, automatic climate control, airbags, and power windows. Its 1.4-litre gasoline engine developed 145 horsepower and 212 Nm of torque. The Punto is a stylish and sporty hatchback that is ideal for individuals who enjoy a good race. However, with a starting price of 9.74 lakh, the Punto has found few takers in India. In 2018, production came to an end.
