How is the dash board design look like? Did they able to rectify the biggest drawback in Indian Fiat cars?

saw the cars in the pic posted by tushky on pune mahabaleshwar road yesterday. There were 3 of them. Did not take the pics as there was nothing extra to share other than the ones also posted. No interior pics. Seems like the car is being extensively tested but when is the launch.

Saw this being tested on the mumbai-pune expressway last week without any of the camo. The car looked great. At first i thought it was a VW.. but once i got closer it was definitely a Linea! Unfortunately i couldnt click pictures :(

Looks like lots of Pune team bhp members saw the Linea on the 5th of June. Even i spotted three cars in Fatimanagar on the very same day at around 9.30 in the morning (better pics already posted by Tushky and others). Heard there are 5 cars totally ready in the Fiat Ranjangoan plant. May be a launch is round the corner.

Sadly, Linea's are avoiding me. I have seen the Nano and the new shape Indica being tested on Pimpri roads, but no Linea sighting so far :(

As far as the information I have from a Fiat source, it will be in the September first half. Looks like most of our information more or less points to this time frame.

Me too! Saw 5 chequered Lineas on Pune-Panchgani road, along with a New shaped (blackened) Indica being tested.
