Much like Mini at its launch, Fiat remains largely a one-model make (here in the United States, that is). While that may not change anytime soon in the U.S., there are rumblings that the model lineup in Canada could expand.

Buoyed by sales proportionately larger above the 49th Parallel than below it, Fiat is apparently plans to add the new Panda (pictured above) and the aging Punto to the Canadian market. Coupled with the expected arrival of the 500L in Fiat "studios" both in Canada and the United States, suddenly the availability of affordable Italian cars looks on the up in the country where Sergio Marchionne was schooled.

      Come on, Sergio! Add the Panda to the US lineup! And with the old 100HP package too! Why let the Canadians have all the fun?!

      Punto Abarth, for those who think the 500 Abarth is too small. And they rally it in S2000.

      I'd love it if they brought them to the states. I've been really wanting a Punto Abarth...

      In 2017 the CAFE requirements take effect in the US, so that's why Chrysler needs to sell these fuel efficient vehicles.

      Wow, cute new Chryslers coming. Not for me, though. No thanks.

        Of course it's not for you. You're just too insecure about your manhood and sexuality to be seen in a small car so instead you would rather be seen in a big tuff boy pick up truck right?.

      The Panda is highly regarded in Europe.

        In some parts of Europe yes, northern part no. In Sweden they nearly don't sell at all. There Fiat products in general are seen as not desirable because of severe rust problems in the past and questionable quality overall. Fiat recently re branded all Chrysler models in Sweden (and in most of Europe) as Lancias (Fiat brand) and now they don't sell at all. Strange market analysis if you ask me.

      It would be really easy to peel off the FIAT badge and stick on a Ram's Head one...Dodge needs this.

        Dodge brand doesn't use the Ram's head anymore. They already have a new compact, the Dart, or as I like to call it, the Neon's smarter brother who went to school in Italy.
