Is a Vauxhall a Fiat a Peugeot or a Chrysler ?
« on: 31 October 2019, 13:49:10 »

Peugeot who own Vauxhall have announced they are to merge with Fiat Chrysler. So the next generation Corsa will probably be a Punto with a griffin badge stuck on each end.
It aint like the good old days, that's for sure.

Or a Corsa with a Fiat badge?

Might be material for a poll.

Which badge  would you prefer on your next car (regardless of underpinnings) ?

Fiat

Chrysler

Peugeot

Opel

Vauxhall

 Well, as GM Europe had a tie with Fiat for several years, the Fiat brand has improved vastly
Does it also mean, as Fiat own Ferrari, we could get a rebadged Fezza with a griffin on it?
Would be RWD for sure

The current 500 is essentially a rebadged Ka/Adam/Karl* and iirc the Corsa D/E is repanelled as the Punto, so no news there :D

Fiat/PSA are already one of the four groups building commercial vehicles for sale in Europe/America so they might as well join forces to bombard the world with shit boxes.  :D

One of the staff at School had a silver one with the obligatory fluffy dice and black plastic rear screen spoiler. Utterly chavtastic, but absolutely mint as I recall 8)

SWMBO had a Fiat Panda about 4 years ago, she loved it I absolutely hated it rubbish on fuel around town but better on a decent run, very poor build quality would never have anything  Italian or French again ( had one Renault years ago total shite).
