What kind of business practice is this? Literally copy the entire interior and change the exterior, call it a new car?
They didn't copy the ND's angry exterior, and they didn't copy the engine, putting in that 1.4 T-Jet instead.
Everything lese is copied - but so what? It reduces research and production costs, and so it'll reduce the price of the car. Not a bad thing at all.
Considering they are sister cars on a shared platform, why would you change the interior?
Besides, Abarth Fiata is going to be fantastic
I get you, but I still think a bit of stereotypical Italian boldness would have been nice. Surely a bit of retooling with some current Alfa bits wouldn't have cost so much?
When I was a kid, my mom had a Mercury Tracer and my neighbors had a Ford Escort. I told my mom I was going to sue Ford for stealing Mercury's design, because I was 5 and didn't understand how that shit worked.
