Same price, more goodies in the Fiat Linea Absolute and Fiat Punto Absolute festive editions.

Is this deal worth it?
The value of the accessories and the discounted insurance are definitely good deals to have. Fiat is not offering discounts on the price of the car, but is trying to add value to the cars by offering free accessories and benefits up to Rs. 78,000 and Rs. 67,000 on the Linea and Punto respectively. The other thing this deal will do, is to drive customers to exclusive Fiat showrooms instead of the Tata-Fiat combine dealerships, which is a good thing for Fiat, as it has been trying to distance itself from Tata when it comes to selling cars.
