I have pictures of the car which i drove but it wouldn't be right if i post it here.Right many Seniors have told me not to do that too. And the Emotion and Dynamic has lots of features which Justify it's Price difference Internally and externally . But I conform that There will be no T-Jet or Dualogic Box. And Yes the car will be launched on 16th December and my dealership have already ordered 55 cars. It will be first available only in four colours, three more colours will follow from march on wards including the light blue.

I agree with them. You would have confidentiality agreement which you signed during joining. It can put you in lot of trouble for disclosing any "non-public" information. All i can tell you is that i know there are people keeping an eye on these postings.

Guys...Now that the December 16th lauch is more or less confirmed (or atleast the month of December ) can we just wait for the 20 more days, rather than worring about the price. let this not be another Fiat thread full of speculations....

What I fear now is that after all the hype and speculation, when finally the product is launched, the expectation will be so much that people start finding only the stuff which are not there in it..... Lets just back and enjoy the show....(though it was quite a bit long one !!!)...

I work for RF motors Cochin as Fiat Sales Consultant.

No Clarity about the delivery dates, no bookings as of now and not planning on taking any untill further intimation from Fiat India. The Ride is Superb the Turbo Lag is absent and the Petrol engine seems REV REV....the overall package seems like an awesome value for money. with the My Car Feature.

Prices may be (Speculations Again) between 6.5 to 9

Agree with you but like you know waiting is really tough
though this is the case which recently happened with ANHC as so much was expected people were let down by the launch,hopefully Linea will live upto the expectations.

Question Linea Looks Like Lightning!

Hey muneem,

IF you know that your dealer ordered 55 cars then you should be knowing their price no? Can you post only the higher end petrol emotion version's price please? IF you are not allowed to then dont bother but try anyway. No T-Jet? I am dissappointed with that. But yes, Linea is confirmed releasing on December 16th. The first four colours are Peral White, Silver, Fox Trot Azure and Maroon.

Thanks.

Hey couldn't watch any of these shows.
Can anyone here upload the video files, would be nice for us to view.

AT Last FIAT have some good news for its followers.
Now keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that they don't mess things up again.

If these specs mentioned are true then its GAME SET AND MATCH for all the Petrol heads.

watch out SX4
move over CITY.
here comes the sizzzzzzzzzzzzzzling LINEA

Fiat really missed the trick when it comes to T-Jet. If they can bring the ridiculously expensive Bravo as a brand building excercise, why can't they just launch the T-Jet.... as a higher end model...


Hoping that the sales of linea really catches up and they launch the T-Jet as some speacial edition atleast.....

Thanks.
I don't see any of those colors in - Fiat Linea -, so I will not believe that. I actually decided on the techno grey if they launch in that color.

P.S. I was surprised to see the thread being open again.
