The Linea T jet almost found a home in Fiat India's pipeline. It was shown at the Auto Expo earlier this year and the concept of a turbocharged petrol engine in an affordable car is music to the enthusiast's ear.
But now, it's ready to come out!
Fiat India's spokesman to Indian Autos Blog -
Yes, Fiat will launch the Linea T-Jet in Mumbai on 8th October. Bookings will be taken in a phased manner. It begins in Mumbai and Pune, followed by Delhi, Chennai, etc. Production has begun as we have to send the cars to our dealers in time for its launch.
The Linea T-Jet will have a turbocharged 1.4-liter petrol engine producing 120-odd bhp (we're guessing). It should also have features that aren't found presently on the Linea like leather seats, rain-sensing wipers, bigger alloy wheels and so on.
We have already shown you a spyshot of the Linea T-Jet testing near Pune, in case you haven't been following us closely.
