Fiat Sedici SUV India Launch Expected–Specifications Features & Price


We guess Fiat has already started working on renovating its dealership strategies in India and will also be looking forward to launch new models in the market. A new cheaper small car, a face-lifted Fiat Linea and a new Fiat Grande Punto Evo are already down the pipeline but a more interesting new coming our way is the very first car from the Italian manufacturer in the SUV segment.

Pretty interesting right? Fiat Sedici is the compact SUV that is expected to be docked at the Indian ports. Built in collaboration with Suzuki, the car was first showcased at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show.


The first impression of the car tells you that it has a lot in common with the Maruti Suzuki SX4 and the very noticeable commonalities include a similar head light and the ride height. In all probability the Sedici and SX4 will have a bunch of other common attributes as well.


Cars like the Mahindra Xylo Mini and the soon to be launched Renault Duster 2012 will be the potential competitors of this new offering and a number of features of the existing Sedici will have to reconsidered by the major before it actually hits the Indian market. No information about the possible engine options is available yet.

Fiat Sedici Mini SUV Price In India

Considering the other cars to be launched in the segment and the prices of conventional seven seater SUVs, the Sedici is expected to be priced below Rs.10 Lakh.
