It's right there, in the middle, on the front page

I think I will end up buying NHC-2008.
Look at it like this - just under sixty days to go now - after having patiently waited for so long, at least see what they offer with the Linea before buying the Honda City'2008.

My opinion.


Wrong (probably?), illegal data! That's definitely not something sweet to munch on!
This was mentioned on the bottom of fiatlinea.co.in page :

so technically he cannot be sued and anyways we know the launch month so we do not have to fret on what he has published. If Fiat choses another domain other than this then he would have wasted his money on this. There is still www.fiatlinea.in or www.fiat-india.com/linea.aspx or www.fiatlinea.com/in or www.fiatlineaindia.com. So we will have to wait and watch.

P.S. dont click any of the above mentioned sites they might not even work or exist!

500 for sure rocks in France. I am in paris from last 4 days and i have seen atleast 10 Fiat 500 with my limited commute.

Having eyetreat with different models from car makers across globe. With so much competition still Renault rules the roads here, just like MUL in India.

From fiat stable, got to see, 500, PUNTO (2 door and 4 door), BRAVO, Old UNO. I am not quite impressed with the looks of Punto. IMO, just by looks Palio scores better over punto.

From suzuki stable got to see, Swift, Splash, Grand Vitara (DDiS).

Fiat has confirmed the launch of Fiat Linea in December, also the engine options and price band, more here:
Quote:
Italian automotive major Fiat India Automobile (FIA) will launch its new mid-size sedan Linea in December.
Quote:
FIA CEO Rajeev Kapoor told ET: “We are optimistic that the market will improve in the last quarter of this year. We have pushed back new launches as the series of government initiatives are likely to bear fruit and improve sentiment by then. So, we will launch our new cars at an appropriate time.”
Linea will be available in 1.3 multi-jet diesel engine and 1.4 FIRE petrol engine. It will roll out from Fiat’s newly established Ranjangaon plant in Maharashtra and will be in the price band of Rs 6-8 lakh. Grante Punto, another locally assembled model from the Fiat stable, was supposed to be launched in December and will now come in the first quarter of 2009. Next in line is its luxury hatchback Bravo, whose launch timing is yet to be finalised.
“We are operating jointly with Tata Motors. There has been a spate of launches, including Tata’s new cars. As our vehicles are jointly marketed with Tata Motors we want to space our launches and do not want to confuse customers with frequent roll-outs. Both these cars are volume products. We aim to clock sales of 2,000 Lineas every month, so a right market strategy is being pursued,” Mr Kapoor added.

Why doesn't ET quote some source when he says that Linea will be available in 1.3 MJD and 1.4 Fire petrol? This kind of information has always wreaked confusion again and again. Either Fiat should come out clear or Media should just stop mentioning anything without a proper quote.

Got training at Mumbai from Monday to Wednesday, not sure weather the launch will be on 29th or 23rd this month will conform by tomorrow evening.

Have got some comparison sheets to be filled up ,main comparison between the ANHC,Verna,Fiesta,SX4. so they are really targeting only this segment.

I got a vouge feeling that the Package will be a little less than we expected.

guys...i think the pricing is bang on. in terms of size its a D segment car, even a bit longer than civic/corolla and looks great too. even at 8 lacs for the fully loaded model, its great.
