    Sorry to say but FIAT created a lot of hype but treating India as a compromised market right from the beginning 1.) Diesel lacks Automatic transmission, lot of noise, inferior insulation/cancellation 2.) Petrol lacks 4x4, even safety features like 6 airbags are absent 3.) No sun roof, no cruise option, no LED DRLs. Its HARD to make a decision to BUY!! Not sure how many would cancel the advance booking amount of 50,000 when actual brochures and physical metal is made available for trial :(

      The Petrol Limited versions are lacking curtain airbags. Is this true?
