@ samyakmodi

I had mentioned already - may be it is the colour combination- bit more greyish - or may be due to bad light please let us wait till GTO's TD and actual trim at launch.

I have no idea when punto sport really comes. I will wait till November for PS, if not launched by then will move to i20 1.4 Crdi Asta.

Any news about the Fiat Linea 1.4 TJet launch? It was earlier reported that the T-Jet launch would happen a month after the Punto 90HP launch....

Fiat bets big on premium segment, plans new Linea

New Delhi: Sensing a growing market for premium executive sedans in the country, Fiat India is looking to launch a high-end version of its executive sedan Linea by the end of this year. The company’s marketing head Tarun Khanna told FE that the company was working on a new car that would have more features and cost higher than the existing Linea.

Calling the model a “top-end Linea”, Khanna said that the car would hit the roads by the end of the calendar year. “The top-end Linea should be launched by the end of this (calendar) year. We are looking to add new features in the existing Linea and the car would be positioned accordingly,” he said. The new Linea would have a turbo charged petrol engine and is expected to cost at least Rs 30,000 more than the existing car. “The turbo charged petrol engine is highly fuel efficient and therefore the engine costs around Rs 30,000 more than other engines,” Khanna said. He declined to share the exact price of the new Linea. The existing Linea costs anywhere between Rs 6.4 lakh to Rs 8.7 lakh.
They keep delaying stuff. Delay sending parts to service centers. Delay car version launches as well.

Found this piece:-
Q&A: Rajeev Kapoor, President & CEO, Fiat India

"We are adding another high-end variant of Linea later this year, over and above the high-powered diesel variant of the Grande Punto launched recently."

From what I got to know from sales reps, the Tjet would be launched during diwali. A premium of just 30K seems too good to be true. IMHO a premium of even 50-75k is ok, depending on the newer features.

In one of the interviews by the CEO, he had also mentioned that they were working at launching the linea on a all new platform as well, though this could be well in 2012.
