Fiat Argo Sting Edition is the sporty avatar of the Italian brand’s regular hatchback, presenting itself as more dedicated and sharp in comparison to the least glorified version. They have not announced anything regarding a change in engine or use of performance parts on the Argo Sting, which itself was seen for the first time at 2018 Sao Paulo Motor Show in Brazil. The car comes with the Yellow exterior finish, black roof shade and sporty black outside rear-view mirrors on the special version. The impressive rear spoiler and perfectly matching 17-inch black alloy wheels complete the overall exterior package.

Fiat Argo Sting is a brainchild of Brazilian design team, commissioned by the brand itself to see how customers respond to a sporty version of their everyday car. The front and rear bumpers are well designed, especially considering the fact that the lower half at the rear end looks directly derived from a ‘Need for Speed’ car. The justified cladding running through the sides bring a more muscular feel to the ride. Also, the front LED headlights with an impressive inner finish add some charm to the car. Most cars of this segment have performance variants stacked with them for a much bigger price.

The concept of bringing Sting can also be taken into that direction in the coming years, with Fiat pitching Abarth-like model under the Sting brand name. Argo, in the regular guise, is good for 139hp of maximum power from its 1.8L petrol engine. The 6-speed automatic gearbox is a bless for Brazilian owners. Argo was first seen as a replacement for Punto in the global market, which in fact could have entered India if they posted positive sales with their existing cars. If even the regular Fiat Argo comes to India, the design will rival none other than Hyundai i20 and Maruti Baleno in its segment.

6 Reasons Why Fiat Should Launch the Dodge Challenger in India https://news.maxabout.com/cars/fiat/reasons-fiat-launch-dodge-challenger/ https://news.maxabout.com/cars/fiat/reasons-fiat-launch-dodge-challenger/#respond Tue, 17 Jul 2018 08:02:24 +0000 https://news.maxabout.com/?p=239897 Here’s Why Fiat Should Launch the Dodge Challenger in India: An average consumer does not know that the Dodge brand is a part of the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles and is one of the most popular muscle cars around the world.

Here’s Why Fiat Should Launch the Dodge Challenger in India: An average consumer does not know that the Dodge brand is a part of the Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles and is one of the most popular muscle cars around the world. Dodge cars have been used numerous times in the Fast and the Furious franchise, first made famous by the iconic 1968 Charger driven by Bill Hickman in Bullitt.

Ever since then, the muscle cars made by the company have been long-desired by petrol-heads around the world. Indian customers have not seen the cars since before Independence and are longing to get their hands on the wheel of one. The company should consider coming back to the country and here’s why:

1) Rich Heritage

Dodge had long been a part of the Indian markets before Independence and was a preference for the people who wanted a good car back in the 1960s. Dodge and Chrysler were among the first brands to agree to begin sales in India under an independent unit. Due to the heavy import duties and low sales at the time, the companies pulled back from the Indian market. Since the regulations are now in control, the companies could start sales in India again, harboring to the emotional connection that people have with them.

2) Lack of Muscle Cars

The Ford Mustang is the only muscle sports car that is available in India today. Since it has no competitor in the market, a two-year-old model of the car has seen an increase in the price of almost INR 10 lakh in the past two years. At present, Mustang GT is available in India for INR 64.72 Lakh.

The car has been awarded the best-selling sports car in the country due to the lack of any other competitor. Fiat should bring their Dodge Challenger to Indian shores and give Ford a run for its money.

3) Brand Awareness

Before Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles brought the Jeep brand in India, the sales were struggling and it seemed like the end of the company in the automobile segment. However, Jeep revolutionized the scenario and was an instant hit with the Compass proving to be a hit in the market. This helped the dealerships in the country to come back to profits after almost being at the brinks of a shutdown. Introduction of a sports segment like Dodge would further improve Fiat’s brand and bring it to the premium segment.

4) Established Dealership Network

The Fiat-Chrysler Group already has an established network of dealers around India. Bringing in the Dodge brand would only require a small tweak to the boards outside the dealership and with the trust levels already maintained by the dealers, Fiat would have no troubles trying to recruit new dealers to bring in the Challenger. Bringing in the Dodge would also prove to be a future platform in case the company wishes to bring the even more premium and luxurious Chrysler brand to butt heads with the German automobile manufacturers.

5) Powerful Engine Options

The last but not the least appealing feature of the Dodge Challenger. The V8 engine producing at least 372 hp is something that everyone wishes to drive once in their lifetime. Fiat should consider the wishes of the public and bring the car to the Indian markets.

Dodge Challenger Doing Burnout

In the United States, there is a wide variety of engines and trims on the Challenger. Starting from $27,295 with an engine producing 305 hp, the Challenger goes all the way up to $71,495 with an engine producing 707 hp. There are also wide-body options available in the United States, which could resonate well with the Indian customers who want added muscle to their cars.

6) Impressive Exterior & Interior

There is a retro touch to the exterior of the Challenger, with the signature twin headlamps up front, one of which serves as an air intake, and the tail-lamps at the rear which have not changed for decades. Only the components of the lights have been changed but the overall design reminds you of the good old days. The muscle of the car is not lost with time and the company opted to go for a wider and more muscular trim rather than make their cars sleeker.

Inside, it is a completely different story. The interiors are surprisingly modern and have the most advanced features. The design of the cabin is surely going to take your breath away with its ergonomic gear lever that fits right into your hand, and the racy bits that you find here and there. The steering features a metal finish at the bottom which makes it even more special. There is a huge touchscreen infotainment system in the center which draws your attention to itself immediately as you step inside.

Fiat Punto Gets Zero Stars in Euro NCAP Crash Tests: The model tested here was equipped with dual front airbags but still was not able to keep its passenger compartment intact. The general description after the test was pretty simple. Old cars are not that capable as present generation cars in terms of safety.

They are, no doubt, heavier than present ones but structural integrity and rigidity plays a very crucial role in passenger safety. The brands who are not updating their cars regularly will fall behind in this race. Most modern cars got 3 stars for their very basic variants.

Fiat Punto Gets Zero Stars
Fiat Punto Gets Zero Stars in Euro NCAP Crash Tests

Fiat Punto came into the market in 2005 and being a 12 year old model, it could not stand under the modern day speeds of crash tests. Markets like India and UK presently sell these models without paying any attention to buyers safety.

The crash tests are placed in such conditions that buyers could decide between various cars that are safer for them in all conditions. They urge everyone to go for better cars and stay safe under all conditions. Cars with five star ratings are rare in India and those with zero star includes few best sellers of all-time.

Fiat Punto Gets Zero StarsEuro NCAP’s recent research concluded that many brands are missing out on life saving features as standard. They do not cost that much but still, the cost cutting plans should not include these at all cost. Some of the present generation five star rated cars include Hyundai Kona, BMW 6GT, Jaguar F-Pace, Toyota Yaris and Kia Stinger.

Back in 2005, Fiat Punto was the first 5-star rated car of its segment. The variation in testing methods and speeds took the car to zero in 12 years. Fiat will soon replace the ageing models like Punto and Linea with better performing models like Argo and Cronos.

Fiat Argo was recently revealed internationally and seems to be a worthy successor to the existing Punto. The muscular car is a perfect hatchback with edgy design that not just looks good but also feels powerful in front of modern day small cars.

As per the latest details available, Fiat is considering the Argo Hatchback for the Indian market and it might replace the Punto in India by the end of 2018 or in early 2019. Fiat Brazil recently released the exterior and interior photos of the Argo and we must say that this hatchback is the best-looking car in its class and we wish Fiat considers Argo for the Indian market in future.

Even if you leave behind everything and just focus on the bonnet of the car, the flaunt friendly muscle can be noticed in its slope. This typical Argo in the images if for the Brazilian market, carrying wider grill, stretched headlamps, LED daytime running lights and a totally new bumper.

Fiat-Argo-Front

Something that even excites more is the use of precision cut alloy wheels with low profile tyres, rear spoiler, chrome exhaust tip and a perfect roofline. The car will start replacing Punto in the international markets, starting with Brazil and then moving forward to other markets.

The Indian entry for the same is still under question as Fiat India’s operational plan is still under a big question mark. The car looks actually better than any other hatchback of the same segment in India.

Fiat-Argo-Interior

Fiat Argo is powered by three different petrol engine options in Brazil. The smallest in the lineup is a 1.0 liter, 78 PS / 107 NM motor while customers can opt for 1.3 liter, 111 PS / 139 NM motor. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 135 HP, 1.8 liter 141 PS / 189 NM unit is also available and offers 6-speed automatic gearbox as an option over the 5-speed manual unit.

The fastest engine-gearbox combination in the Fiat Argo helps the hatchback to attain a 0-100 kmph time of 9.0 seconds and a top-speed of around 192 kmph. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has current plans for expanding its engine manufacturing capacity in India as they have renewed a deal with Maruti Suzuki and Tata Motors regarding diesel engines.

Fiat India to Supply 2.2 lakh Diesel Engines to Maruti Suzuki & Tata Motors

Fiat India will increase it’s engine production capacity at the Ranjangaon plant as they have to supply 2.2 lakh more diesel engines to Tata Motors and Maruti Suzuki in India. Fresh agreements have been signed between Fiat and other two brands regarding the same. Out of the total number of engines, 1.5 lakh units would be sold to Maruti Suzuki for it’s Dzire, Ignis, Ciaz and Vitara Brezza. The 70,000 units for Tata Motors will displace 2.0 liter and may get used in the upcoming Q501 and Q502.

Fiat’s Multijet Diesel Engine

Maruti Suzuki is developing its own 1.5 liter diesel motor to use in all future products. Indian automobile industry believes that only two to three products are successful when a total of ten products are launched in India. Sharing platforms and engines could help them not just save time and effort but even a lot of investment on new products. Tata Motors has even signed MOU with Volkswagen that can result in future sharing of platforms and engines among the two noticeable car brands of India.

Ciaz

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz recently moved to NEXA outlets

Tata Motors is revising its entire lineup to get rid of slow sellers and aged products. The introduction of Tiago and Tigor was a successful operation while Hexa is currently struggling to find some reasonable amount of buyers. Maruti, on the other hand, launches new products that are even not as capable as the ones from the Tata side but still manages to post much higher numbers due to its widespread network. Fiat is currently focusing more on its engine department as their products could not even match the sales of luxury car manufacturers.
