Fiat Linea caught testing!!!!

Recommended Posts

i think this was the best time to launch as City is launched but yet not available and if in the between linea would have launched then it would have got good response also as deliveries of City are in mid november or december..

This dillydallying is not going to help Fiat's cause. After years of debacle, least they could do was give one date & stick to it by all means. If this is the case now, what will be the affair of ASS, its anybody's guess.

I fear this is what they are going to do with spare parts also, keep giving dates to customers!

I can only hope that FIAT was waiting to see the new Honda City and is now fine tuning Linea to offer us a better package at a lower price.

 

Currently Linea seems to be the only car which can provide some competition to City. Let us see if Mr. Kapoor and his team can live upto our expectations.

dude, Fiat is a useless CAR. Its better off if tata learns something good from fiat and implement the same in its cars. I will choose a tata rather than a fiat. Fiat has no world view, the company is kinda racist in its dealings

Good input Vibhor, but what's the source, apart from T-Bhp?

So, its 1.3MJD only, no 1.9L ! This dampens the spirit somewhat.

Though Torque & 0-100 timings are impressive.

Please don't rant your opinions on Fiat here. It may be a useless car to you but to me, my Fiat is a brilliant car with no other equal in its segment and there are others who feel the same of a FIAT. I can go on about Fiat's but this thread is about the Fiat Linea so let's stick to that!

@CC- I dont think 1.9 MJD will be launched in the near future. I think Fiat should think of settings its sales & service . After sales of Fiat 1.3 MJD Linea pick up , i think more people might be ready to shell more than 9 lacs for a Fiat. So give it some time. Though i feel a 1.6 MJD would be an awesome idea too..

Dude. 1.9 means excess tax duty. The Indian government has put a slab on imposing excise duty. Petrol cars which are less than 1.3 and Diesel less than 1.6 will have minimal duty.  But the length also comes into play. Any car above 4000mm length will be taxed extra

Check out the website guys....

Just saw this website.. There are loads of customisation and the color configurations are awsome.  Will all these be available in India tooo??? The Car length is huge man... It has 150 mm more interior space. And the seats look so smooth and stylish. Wish its not a paint shop etched photo. and a 500lt bootspace,lol, is there any car which offers so much bootspace in this class?

For me, the front Grill and the Headlamps are the most attractive.
