When launched, the Fiat Linea 125s will be the most powerful petrol car in its class.

According to a report on the Economic Times, the Fiat Linea 125s will be launched in mid-2016, whereas the Avventura Urban Cross will have its introduction in the third quarter of this calendar year. When launched, the Linea 125s will be the most powerful petrol-powered mid-size sedan thanks to the 125 PS of power from the 1.4-liter four-cylinder turbocharged T-Jet engine.

Developing 210 Nm of torque, the Linea 125s will closely rival the Hyundai Verna (123 PS) and the Honda City (119 PS), both of which use naturally-aspirated petrol engines with variable valve timing.
