Fiat has just launched the Abarth 595 Competizione hot hatch in India. Although the pricing picks up a fight with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class & the BMW 1-Series; the arch rival for this Italian small car is the Mini Cooper S.
Both models are brought to India as a CBU & hence account for higher pricing.
