Not that beautiful, i suppose, but still further pics required to support this comment.

engine version are almost as expected.

Love to see 1.3 Diesel (probably it will the same Legendary "UNIVERSAL" 1.3 MJD)

I think we should declare the the 1.3MJD our "national engine". All car makers now having that engines in their multiple models, weather its a hatch or sedan.


So, Fiat is giving Punto & Linea the same Engine.

This is not fare, because linea is a higher segment car (SX4 class), having a lower class engine (Dzire class), while is price is still of SX4 class.

Why does it look like an Indica (V2) to me?
This design is certainly not up to Italian standards.

@ "National Engine"!

Well it is pretty popular in Europe too. No wonder it has won so many awards!

And yes, the Linea engine is not the same as in the Palio or dZire or Swift. Yes it has the same displacement, but what differentiates it is the presence of the VGT (Variable Geometry Turbo), allowing it to make a lot more power and torque!
