Fiat enters pricewar - Linea TJet now at 7.6L only

Recommended Posts

Fiat is on a role after it parts way with Tata.

Fiat along with Chrysler(JEEP for us) going to invade Indian Market like never before. With Diesel's price skyrocketing, TJET being the best petrol engine in sub-10L market, Fiat starts the pricewar in style.

If a Linea TJet is 7.6L, it can easily price Punto at 6L for a stripped petrol TJET version entering the Indian Hot Hatch market in style.

More about TJET,

1. The Fastest and may be the most FE petrol engined sedan in sub 10L Category.

2. 207NM of torque at 2200rpm.

3. 0-100 at 12s was with wider 205mm tyres, so expect better pickup.

4. FE should be 1-2kms more than old Linea 1.4L's figure, that makes it close to segment best FE(near City's)

Lets welcome back the OHC Vtec/ Baleno days where pocket rockets don't cost a bomb.

OMG!!

T-jet at 7.6L!

This is for sure one of the best driving machines, this side of 10L. One thing, I feel disappointed about is that there is no excitement among the newsmakers/auto-journalists on this.

Just hope, to see Fiat's future changes in Indian industry and in a positive sense!

That is killer pricing for what is an absolute driver's car. The T-Jet is a petrolhead delight and now at a delicious price. Hope the service is upto the mark now.

Adding to what F30 said, the Polo GT only has the DSG going for it but that too is a worry. And now it looks way over priced after looking at the T-Jet

Thats a Rocket that travels horizontally .

The model will sport a number of advanced features like premium upholstery with leather seats, designer alloy wheels, advanced infotainment system, GPS, satellite navigation and automatic climate control.

Hope they had done something to those front headlamps and rear tail lights

I would seriously consider this car if I'm in the market for a sedan.

The only thing I would like to see is the service quality and maintenance of these FIATs to stabilize.

Don't want to see these cars meet the same fate as of FIAT Padmini.

Wow ! what a pricing.

A hatchback -Polo GT 1.2 TSi at Rs.7.99 lacs.

& full fledged sedan -Linea 1.4 T-jet at 7.6 lacs only. Quite fantastic.

That make Linea T-Jet even more price perfect and VFM...keeping in mind indian customers are having "Bada Hai To Bahtar" thought in their minds.
