The Fiat Linea T-Jet is the best driver’s cars on this side of Rs. 10 lakhs but the enthusiast-insensitive petrol price kept most C-Segment customers away from enjoying its spooling turbo since its launch in late 2010.

However today we can confirm that Fiat India is planning to relaunch the Linea T-Jet to enhance its appeal on the face of intensifying competition.

Marius D’Lima, Head – Corporate Communications Fiat Group Automobiles India to Indian Autos Blog –

The new T-Jet launch is a model year change. It will be differently packaged and there will be no body changes. It will be available from the 1st of April.

The Linea T-Jet is powered by a 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol engine which pumps out 113 bhp and an impressive 211 Nm of torque. The updated variant of the car is expected to get added features. Currently there is no top of the line Emotion variant in the petrol model lineup and the relaunched T-Jet can slot in as the top-end variant with equipment level at par with the diesel Emotion variant.

Fiat India announced plans last December to relaunch the Linea as the ‘Linea Classic’ this year. The repositioning exercise, like the launch of the T-Jet, may not witness changes to the car’s body panels. The ‘Classic’ may be a model year change, across all variants, for the year 2013.

We’re bound to get more on these launches in the weeks and months to follow, so stay with IndianAutosBlog.com.
