Auditor’s report on the consolidated Financial statements pursuant to articles 14 and 16 of legislative decree n. 39 of 27 january 2010

To the Shareholders of Fiat S.p.A.

  1. We have audited the consolidated financial statements of Fiat S.p.A. and its subsidiaries, (the “Fiat Group”) as of and for the year ended December 31, 2012, comprising the income statement, the statement of comprehensive income, the statement of financial position, the statement of cash flows, the statement of changes in equity and the related explanatory notes. The preparation of these financial statements in compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union and with art.9 of Legislative Decree n. 38/2005 is the responsibility of Fiat S.p.A.’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

  2. Our audit was performed in accordance with auditing standards recommended by CONSOB (the Italian Stock Exchange Regulatory Agency). In accordance with such standards, we planned and performed our audit to obtain the information necessary to determine whether the consolidated financial statements are materially misstated and if such financial statements, taken as a whole, may be relied upon. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, as well as assessing the appropriateness and correct application of the accounting principles and the reasonableness of the estimates made by management. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

    For the opinion on the consolidated financial statements of the prior year, which are presented for comparative purposes, reference should be made to the report issued by other auditors dated February 27, 2012.

  3. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements of the Fiat Group at December 31, 2012 have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union and with art. 9 of Legislative Decree n. 38/2005; accordingly, they present clearly and give a true and fair view of the financial position, the results of operations and the cash flows of the Fiat Group for the year then ended.

  4. The management of Fiat S.p.A. is responsible for the preparation of the Report on Operations and the Annual Report on Corporate Governance, published in the section “Corporate Governance” of Fiat S.p.A.’s website, in accordance with the applicable  laws and regulations. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the consistency with the financial statements of the Report on Operations and of the information presented in compliance with art.123-bis of Legislative Decree n. 58/1998, paragraph 1, letters c), d), f), l), m) and paragraph 2, letter b) in the Annual Report on Corporate Governance, as required by the law.
