For monthly usage of 100km the petrol is the one and I think you will use the car on weekends etc so the Fiat Linea Emotion suits you the most do look at the Fiesta 1.6sxi also .

Fiat Linea petrol is a Good car but Worrysome things about it are its Quality, Tata-Fiat's Service & frequently cropping Niggling problems.

So the better option for now is to Wait for VW Vento, as it'll be out in Market very soon- may be in a Month or so.

However, Etios sedan will come late into the Market, may be in Dec-2010 or Jan2011.

Very much true dr_nishu.

Considering your low running, it is confirmed that petrol is the one for you. It's really worth to wait for the upcoming Vento and also the new fiesta coming very soon to our market....

If you can't wait then, either fiesta/city/sx4/verna could do, but one word, if you really like driving, go in for fiesta. It is  a true driving machine...

The Honda city is now available with cheaper variants. Like bala and Nishu I would also suggest to check SX4 and City before choosing Fiat Linea. SX4 is now with VVT engine and is better than before.

When buying a petrol sedan the 3 cars that you should not miss are City, SX4 and Fiesta. TD these 3 along with Fiat Linea to get the best out of all.

whilst waiting for the vento may sound tempting, as of today, there is nothing as beautiful to look at in the mid range sedan segment as the linea. Also, there may be new engine options coming soon so wait for those.

If you can't wait for more then linea is just a very fine car to own. Fiat's engineering are as sure as it can get. The machine is loaded with a quite a lot of features for the price.

It is also the newest among the lot and hence equipped with latest features. You could wait for the linea engine upgrade which should be just round the corner..

If what I hear is right, Punto Sports will be out in June & Linea Tjet will be out in September.

The Vento and TJET will be launched in last quater of this year so no sedan are going to be launched in 2,3 months . Also you can consider the Jazz too now it has 55k off which is the right price for it . But at the same price you the get the similar powered diesel i20 which is also a delight to run on highways.

Hi, I will say Big NO for Linea. My brother has Linea-petrol.It is not only pathetic to drive, the AC is very poor. Recently we were 5 ppl on board and even after 20 minutes drive we all were sweating like anything. The rear AC was not that effective.

If you are not too much concerned about Hatchback, better go with I-20 or Jazz.

All the best.

Since the running is rather limited for you, an i20 diesel's price is not justified. As others have pointed out i20, Jazz and SX4 fit your budget and are three companies that provide probably the most relaxed ownership experience in the whole country. Also with 2 out 3 of these cars, you have the option of a auto box which can be a real delight sometimes in traffic. I would personally go for i20 auto or Jazz.
