Overall Comments

Good looks, Paint quality a bit inferior with passage of time (typical Fiat - paint starts getting rusted at underframe, near door opening, Chrome plating started to chip-off after two years in patched at side molding. door handle plating is excellent. Front chrome plated grill (actually made of plastic) developed crack in the second year.

Inferior plastic used, however the other parts are good / Ok type. Seat is comfortable and can be adjusted to suit your posture and height. Speedometer Panel is Just TOO GOOD. Computer controlled features are excellent !!! specially the one - which shows the instant mileage for any particular moment, which may actually help improve the driving skills and to get best mileage.

Comfortable ride with a sense of feeling safe and secured. Ground clearance is low, hence have to drive cautiously on pot holes and bad road. Suspension is great. Pick-up is bit slow, but once it attains the motion than its the king on the road !!! Braking is perfect.

The boot is big but doesn't have a water flow - outlet, my water can tripped on a long ride and after opening the boot I found water stagnant there with no outlet to let it flow-down :-(. Had to do manually with the help of mug / glass and ultimately soaking with cloth piece.
