Pope Francis Elevates Fiat’s Brand Equity in U.S.

Fiat enthusiast John Montgomery says a hurdle is getting people to look beyond the cars’ unflattering past. His hope is they will recognize that, just as a new pope brings new energy, a new Fiat means new possibilities.

Fiat does meet a need for utility and efficiency. It also is a humble investment. In the post-Neon market it provides intentional diversity for partner Chrysler, offering an economy-car line that has flair and is frugal and fun.

I asked Montgomery what he likes best about supporting and promoting the Fiat brand and he said: “Our members love the powerful emotion of Fiat – they turn heads. You come out of a store and there are people waiting by your car to ask you about it. Fiat Club America wants to share and expand that emotional connection.”
