This news is sure to set you exicted if an Itailan hot hatch is what you have always wanted to own.

Fiat India has today announced that it plans to introduce the Fiat Abarth in ever growing Indian car market. Fiat Abarth India might even have a seperate sales network and the first car to come from Fiat Abarth India could be a Abarth version of Fiat Grande Punto.

The Abarth Punto would be powered by a more powerful version of the 1.4-litre turbo-charged petrol motor that powers the Linea Tjet. Safely expect the Abarth Grand Punto to have around 140hp of power and a stuffer suspension.

It may be noted that ever since the demise of the last generation Skoda Octavia vRS, there exists a huge void in the ‘affordable performance car segment’ and the Abarth Grande Punto could be what the doctor has ordered.

    author, i hate to point out your mistake i.e. it has 1.4ltr multiair engine not 1.4 FIRE t-Jet engine & it produces 165Hp & top variants may give upto 180PS & >300Nm torque. fitted with pirelli tires , disc brakes on four corners & 16inch alloys if FIAT want it to be as it is in Italy!
