It might be possible that a compact SUV will be a boom to Indian Auto Market. Fiat is thinking over to introduce compact SUV in India. However, rumor has it that this compact SUV is expected to be the revised variant of Fait Sedici, which is sold by Fiat in Europe. It could be possible that Fiat will launch Fiat Sedici in India with some kind of modification according to the Indian roads. The manufacturing of Fiat Sedici is done by Suzuki Motors in Hungary and is based on SX4 platform. Till now, Fiat has not introduced SUV in the country. However, this firm does have Fiat Linea sedan and hatchback car Fiat Punto in India.

Rumor has it that Fiat compact SUV Sedici could be launched in India pretty soon. This SUV is expected to be fuel efficient and the price range is not likely to be very high. However, the original Fiat Sedici was launched in the year of 2006 and was developed in alliance with Suzuki Motors. Car fanatics will surely identify the resemblance between Maruti SX4 and Fiat Sedici. Fiat Sedici is basically a hatchback variant of Maruti SX4. The Maruti SX4 in India is available in 2 variants; one is 1.3 litre diesel and the other one being 1.6 litre petrol versions. Other manufacturer, such as Mahindra is also mulling to introduce Mahindra Mini Xylo in India, on the other hand, Maruti is putting its efforts on R3 MPV. Even Renault India is thinking of launching Renault Duster SUV within the price range of Rs. 10 Lakh.

If Fiat launched Fiat Sedici in India, than it would be easy to recover the loss, which was caused in the year of 2009-2010. Fiat faced a loss of around Rs. 290 Crore, but Fiat Sedici could help the firm to revitalize. However, there is no word on the Fiat Sedici price till now.
