What is this? You dreamt up these prices or are these the prices that Tata plans to go with (and you have some confirmed news)?

It was just my opinion on their future pricing strategy. Either you agree or you don't

I dont agree with the above price at all, the Linea is way overpriced, in that segment (D) people expect a lot of Brand Image which Fiat lacks and thats the reason why even cars like Cedia & Elantra have not done so well.

I said 'Linea - 8 to 12 L'.

What if you get Automatic Climate Control, Automatic Headlights, Alloys, ABS with EBD, Steering Mounted Audio Controls, Airbags, Sunroof? (Not sure) along with a 1.9MJD producing 140 or even 150 bhp for 12L, would you still call it overpriced?

Fully loaded Corolla (128bhp) comes around 11L, whereas Civic (140bhp) starts above 12L but both of them are Petrol. Fully loaded Octavia (90bhp) comes around 11L(?) whereas Laura (105bhp) starts at 13.5L. Cedia & Elantra don't have that much features! What say?

Remember this also! (Thanks Amit for the info)

If OD is to be believed, Linea is also supposed to come with the Blue and Me telematics system.
