Spied – Fiat Linea T-Jet?
Spied while testing on the Pune – Shirdi highway by our reader Tarun Kumar Tripathy, this appears to be a normal Fiat Linea right until you pay close attention to its exhaust tip. Unlike normal Fiat Lineas, this temporary registered Fiat Linea, that seems like a test mule, possesses a chromed oval exhaust tip. While normal Lineas have no exhaust tip, their tailpipe also folds away downwards at the end. The spied Linea’ tailpipe is perfectly straight.
If one compares the exhaust tip of this Fiat Linea to the one of the Fiat Linea T-Jet showcased at the Auto Expo in Delhi, it shows that the exhaust tips of both the cars are exactly identical.
So, could this be the Linea T-Jet or was it a normal Fiat Linea with the exhaust tip of the Linea T-Jet? It is difficult to ascertain this because the badges of this Fiat Linea are not clearly visible at night, but our guess is that it is the Fiat Linea T-Jet which will be launched a month after the 90hp Punto.
