wow! Awesome news! I was planning to go for the Linea by this year end. But now, I'll surely wait for the T-JET to arrive. It's the first car in C and D segment to have Hill Holder! And also the first to have Auto Windshield Wipers & auto Headlamps in a sub-10Lac car!
Kudos to Fiat
Thanks for the info autocarcr. You beat sidindica to this

Can't agree more with you. High bhp and torque to go with the great handling :-) Removes the main handicap linea had against ANHC, IMO.

If nothing among displacement, power and torque curve, 0-100 timing and top speed change, is it possible that we have a different tune and FE is going to drastically improve?

The specs you have posted are available exactly in same state all over the net. There is nothing "Indian" in them.

Just compare the below specs from fiat.de with your's

Quote:
Number of cylinders: 4
Displacement 1368 cc
Power: 120 PS at 5,000 rpm.
Torque: 206 Nm at 2,500 rpm.
Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h: 9.2 s
Top speed: 195 km/h

Great news autocarcr. Linea with a turbo would rock. I guess this will be the first sub 10L sedan with a <10s time to 0-100 too! With its already great handling and features - this would be the best under 10L drivers car.

Max. Power: 119.2bhp@5000rpm (Actual: 117.8bhp)
Peak Torque: 206nm@2500rpm
The international spec one makes the same torque at a much lower 1750 rpm, any clue why its different? Not that 2500 is bad for a petrol engine, but still 1750 would have been ubercool.

Folks, i guess this part carries a little too excitement. Fiat themselves claim the regular FIRE engine to be the most fuel efficient one - so expect the FE of the Tjet to be a little lower than the regular one. Check under engine options here: - Fiat Linea -. Expecting 14kmpl in city from the Tjet is just daydreaming.

Just thinking out aloud. How I wish Fiat does a Palio encore and plonks in the 1.4T-Jet into the Grande Punto.

Cheers,

Jay

I would expect a FE of about 8-9 kmpl.

How about 2-3?

Just kidding.

I guess driving style goes a long way with turbo charged vehicles. If you don't know when to shift, you might as well burn up all the oil in Iraq and get nowhere.

I wouldn't be as pessimistic as nitrous, maybe more like 12-13.

I would be happy with that, given the sort of power on offer.

One can do 18 kmpl from the same engine. But, that doesn't mean its a standard 18, all the time.
I know stock Skoda RS' making 7kmpl in city.

The city makes a guzzler of any car.
And with a turbo, it will go even more south.

1) What kind of a person would buy a petrol turbo car over a MJD version?
2) Honestly, how many of those can control the urge of seeing full boost often?

I understand your concern, but that isn't going to stop them from going in for it. The knowledge that they are F1 drivers comes to Indians right from the womb.

Any petro head would! Its got awesome power and awesome torque. The only place where the MJD has a clear advantage is the FE.

Between the two of us... with that sort of power at hand...The FE can go to hell!
