Isn't the T-jet Linea supposed to come with different interior scheme (i mean black/grey interiors with leather). These test cars seems to have the same interiors as the current Linea.

Yes, the tyres do seems a wee bit wider and may be even 16 inchers as well

How did I infer that they were T-Jets?



Pics will be posted once I get home in the evening.
That's a keen observation Kiran!

Did you manage to get a glimpse of the interiors? Any idea if they're testing the dualogic versions as well?

Nice catch!

Hopefully, someone will spot the Punto Sports version too being tested. That's the one I'm waiting for.

As per the available information till date, T-jet will be going to launch with disc brake in both front and rear.
Somehow i am not convinced with the pictures that it is T-jet, coz cant see any modification with respect to current Linea; or else the angle of picture is culprit which is not indicating any clue!

Moral said the same thing about the exhaust in previous and thats the reason he said its a Tjet. I wanted to confirm if that particular car had rear disks on not if Moral saw the it.

Yes the tyres looked wider to me too. They won't bother changing the antenna between different versions I think.

They were shod on 15" steel rims for sure. Cannot comment about the interior scheme since I couldn't catch a glimpse.

Not sure Swaley, I couldn't overtake these cars since I had to turn into my office in the next 50 meters.

If you see in the picture from the Auto Expo(Source-www.indiancarsbikes.in)There are 4 distinct differences in the TJet as compared to the current linea if you look from behind 1) as noticed by you Moral its the Exhaust 2)Its the T-Jet badge 3) the rear spoiler and 4) the shark fin.

All these accessories were on the car displayed in Auto Expo 2010. Im not doubting your sighting moral, but all the 4 seperators between the 2 lineas can be added on or removed easily.

Im a die hard fan of FIAT and I really hope what you spotted were the TJets and Im just hoping the TJet comes with the accessories as shown in the expo and not like the ones you saw.Peace.

Completely - I personally prefer the shark fin on the Linea, its more or less the same type as they have on the BMW's, Personally Im not too fond of the Shark fin on Audi's and Merc's it looks more of a shark tooth then a fin

Is the testing going on in Pune only? I spotted one Linea with spoiler and temporary registration couple of months back in Nagpur! Couldn't notice anything else as I was rushing to the college and the car was moving in the opposite direction!

Spotted the Fiat 1.3 MJD VGT (90 bhp) version undergoing testing along with the 1.4Tjet Linea's. Woohoo. Seems like some good launches are underway. No pics this time.

You mean the Fiat Punto MJD VGT? This is really good news. Many dealers in Bangalore have confirmed that Punto S launch is next month.
