Fiat 500 A Car That Excites Only A Few

When I was reading about Fiat 500, the first thing I googled out is ?why should I buy this car?? The question is both obvious and relevant especially when we talk about Indian market conditions. No matter what the Fiat fans say, but this car, in my opinion, is certainly not for competitive Indian auto market. There are two main reasons for that; one is the radical styling and the second is the steep pricing, both do not match to the mindset of the people here. Even elite buyers would avoid this tiny car and go for some luxury vehicle in the Rs. 30 lakh price range. However, the external appearance of body decals and sporty alloy wheels will definitely turn the heads on the roads. The inside too is the epitome of sporty design with red-black stitching on the seats, the instrument cluster and the overall fit and finish of the cabin. The performance level of this car is nothing short of excellence. The Abarth prefix is enough to excite any performance oriented auto enthusiast. Powering this pocket rocket is the 1.4L turbocharged petrol engine that makes 160bhp and peak torque 230Nm, paired to 5-speed manual transmission. The car is able to break the 100kmph barrier in less than 8 seconds of time. Still, Fiat 500 is not everyone?s cup of tea. This is the vehicle for those who love to make a style statement along with jaw-dropping performance. Fiat 500 can also be an option for those who are thinking of buying Mini Cooper S. Other than these, there is no solid reason why this car should be called a mass market vehicle.

    NOT FOR EVERYONE.

    Obviously this car won't sell much in India because at this price range most customers would go for some SUV or some German automobile and not for a small car from an unrecognized brand. For those who...Read More
