But this Italian Auto giant has something else in mind. They have come back to India and now they are trying to do whatever is possible to make a presence in Maruti Suzuki oriented car market.
Few months back they launched a sedan car, Linea in India, a well designed car was launched on a very competitive price. Now they have launched their one of the best design,
Fiat Grand Punto.
It is a premium hatchback car, which is released few days after the launch of Honda Jazz. What they did this time, a competitive price tag, which they also did with Linea. It looks macular but a sporty one.
