Low gas prices as well as shifting market preferences to larger models and CUVs in particular, continues to impact sales of smaller cars. It is a trend that doesn't show signs of stopping anytime soon. It will be interesting to see how Fiat will conteract this trend and sources say we may see some changes coming in the near future.
