The colour is good.Overpricing will bring the sales down. The Linea with the 1.6 unit should cost about 9.5 On road.Should be competition for the Cruze!

well not very sure but they are considering changing thewhole interiors with more upmarket quality and features along with higher engine specs and power to compete with D segment cars.
My wish would be 1.3 current, 1.6 105 bhp and 1.9, give all these three variants to choose and complete line up.

well yes 1.4 vjet engine is a welcome and much needed for their linea, but as we all are talking about its 1.6mdjt engine, i dont think its gonna come, rather fiat is thinking of coming up with 1.9L multijet engine for linea later in 2010.
source:friend working for fiat.
This information is correct. Also this will be coming after Delhi Auto Expo.

MODS, please change the title to "FIAT Linea - 1.4 16 V T-Jet in 2010 !"

Fiat will launch the Linea T-Jet at the 2010 edition of the Auto Expo in New Delhi (or even before, stay tuned!). The Linea T-Jet comes with the turbocharged version of the naturally aspirated 1.4 petrol and develops a healthy 120 ps @ 5000 rpm and more impressive 206 nm of torque right from 1750 rpm onwards! With so much torque low down in the rev range we would expect the T-Jet to be even more fuel efficient than the current NA 1.4, simply because you dont need to rev the car as much to move about and can simply ride the torque most of the times within the city.


The Linea T-Jet will accelerate from 0-100 kph in a blistering 9.2 seconds with a top speed of around 200 kph. When launched, Linea T-Jet will be the only car in its catagory to have a turbocharged petrol engine. Apart from the engine the Linea will also come with comfort and convenience features like Hill Holder function (for hill starts where the car would automatically brake to stop it rolling backwards when you take your foot off to accelerate), Rain sensing wipers, Automatic headlamps and Reverse parking sensors.

T-Jet Linea to Launch on 2010 Auto Expo

Fiat India, which is pulling out all stops to enhance its marketshare in the midsize sedan segment, is looking to unveil a high powered Linea at the upcoming 2010 Auto Expo, scheduled for January next year.

Although the company has not offered any comments on this, but a leading auto magazine has claimed that Fiat will launch the Linea T-Jet, which comes with the turbocharged version of the naturally aspirated 1.4 petrol and develops a healthy 120 ps @ 5000 rpm and more impressive 206 nm of torque right from 1750 rpm onwards. It is to be mentioned that currently Linea is available in a 1.3 litre diesel and a 1.4 litre petrol versions and has sold around 10,000 units since its launch in January this year, or 1,300 units a month.

The Linea has everything going for it – looks, finish and a good price, except the one thing that matters most in a good car – power. In a test drive on National Highway 8, I drove the petrol-powered Linea up a flyover with 3 people in the car. The accelerator was pressed flat to the floor (yes, flat down) and it was still groaning under our combined weight while other cars whizzed past cocking a snook at us. If Fiat doesn’t change the engine soon enough, Fiat will end up driven by old ladies who drive to kitty parties and back,” commented Anindya Banerjee, SCD, Publicis India.

If the automobile magazines are to be believed, the Linea T-Jet will accelerate from 0-100 kph in a blistering 9.2 seconds with a top speed of around 200 kph. When launched, Linea T-Jet will be the only car in its category to have a turbocharged petrol engine. Apart from the engine the Linea will also come with comfort and convenience features like Hill Holder function (for hill starts where the car would automatically brake to stop it rolling backwards when you take your foot off to accelerate), Rain sensing wipers, Automatic headlamps and Reverse parking sensors.

Meanwhile, the India arm of the Italian automaker is also planning to export 10 per cent of its total production --- including Linea and Grande Punto - over the next one year. From November, Grande Punto, which is also being modified for the overseas markets, will be exported to South Africa. The company has already exported 250 units of Linea to South Africa and is targeting to clock 3,000 units of the aforesaid mid-size sedan in the next 12 months. "We will in the first phase cater to the neighbouring markets of Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bhutan and then look at markets such as New Zealand and Australia," a senior representative told reporters recently
