I talked to a salesguy at FIAT dealership.
He said Linea T-Jet and Punto Sports are coming in July-August.

Hi

Just hope that they can offer better interiors in their cars. First thing is that they should have dual tone black-beige colours, change the seats from black to maybe leather beige, knock off the exterior splashes of red on the new "Sports" variants.

I myself know of many friends who did not buy the Punto because the light grey did not look good with the black.

Fully agree. I was thinking more of the Polo 1.6 but after seeing the feature list (no automatic climate control, no USB music system) I really prefer the Punto sport. If only it would come with Linea spec interiors and not the boring grey plastic.

Another thread mentions the additional features that will be on a T-Jet. Have these been confirmed by anyone?

1) Hill Holder
2) Auto Windshield Wipers
3) Auto Headlamps
4) Reverse Parking Sensors
5) More Colour Options: Cool Jazz Blue, Indie Ivory, Exotica Yellow
6) Blue and Me SatNav could possibly arrive.

^^ Until the launch actually takes place, a discussion on equipment will be purely speculative. Lets first wait for official info from Fiat.

Just read on BS Motoring website (quoting Fiat India CEO Rajeev Kapoor) that Fiat would launch Linea Turbo Jet and Punto 90 bhp by June 2010.
Great news indeed!

Yes, it is there in ET also - read here.

But the more interesting news is the plan for 3 to 3.5 Lakh car by end 2011.

Quote:
Fiat India Automobiles Limited, a joint-venture between Fiat Group and Tata Motors, plans to launch its small car by the end of 2011. “We are working on a small car which will be launched either by end of next year or early 2012,” said Fiat India Automobiles president and chief executive officer Rajeev Kapoor in Chandigarh.

The small car is likely to be priced in the Rs 3-3.5 lakh bracket
