I agree with the above comment. Honestly launching a Linea Abarth is a no brainier. No one buys a Linea T jet now and no one is going to buy Abarth Linea either. It is never going to set the market on fire. I would definitely like the Fiat launch an updated Linea 1.6MJD (without a premium of 3 L like Scross but with some realistic pricing for Aaam aadmi) with features on par with current sedans. Rather than doing all these gimmicks fiat should do something worthwhile to strengthen their portfolio.

Linea and Abarth are two names that just don't work for me. Has there ever been a Abarth sedan? There is nothing wrong with the current Linea T Jet and please leave it that way Fiat India. No harm in offering the Abarth tune on the Linea. Don't call it an Abarth edition for the heck of it. You end up killing the essence of the brand, that is Abarth.

Motor Octane's Fiat sources have shot down this bit of news, claiming that Fiat is firmly focussed on the Abarth versions of the Punto Evo & the Avventura only, and that there will not be an Abarth version of the Linea, at least for this generation.

Contrary to rumours about an Abarth version in Linea, Fiat is currently focussing on the Abarth brand only for Punto and later for Avventura, having already launched the 595 Competizione.

As per our sources, an Abarth version on the Linea has never been planned, at least for this generation and does not exist internationally too.
