Thats the T-Jet !

Rajeev Kapoor's interview in Wheels unplugged states that T-jet will be the topend model in Linea porfolio. That means, the existing variant will remain.

T-jet may come with an automatic variant as well.

Extract of the interview with Rajeev Kapoor (courtesy : wheels unplugged) :

One of the question: In terms of the range for 2010?
We are showcasing the Punto Trendz which is aimed at youngsters – it has bright colours, a good sound system, taking out all the unnecessary frills that raise the price but NOT compromising with the safety, drivability which is now becoming the trademark of the FIAT brand. We are displaying a very high-powered Punto which is 90bhp, which practically becomes a racing car with all the safety features intact. So these two cars will be hitting the road this year as far as India is concerned. We also have feed back on the Linea – a lot of people like the car but are gasoline drivers who feel it is underpowered at present. So we are showcasing a Linea with a turbocharged gasoline engine developing 110bhp and this car will be launched this year. This will actually be the top end Linea in the range. All the standard up-market features will be there. So now we have completed the range – there is a Punto for everyone and there is a Linea for everyone. We will concentrate on these for the next twelve to fifteen months before we think of doing anything else.

From what i can see, the pics sid has posted is of a LHD T-Jet. So, in all probability that might not be India!

He is talking about post #32, which shows the T-Jet engine pic.


Thanks Sid for the pics, any news on the release dates.

its just a lucky draw guys! just marketing stuff! i am pretty sure those linea's are from the lot which were from before the changes made. upgrades in quality and so on. i am refering to the SIDs thread about punto and linea production quality upgrades.

i wonder if we will see such alloys standard on indian linea. even on the Tjet. i heard that it will come with 16" alloys. are these the ones or something else.

i probably think these are the 17" alloys. i am mad about alloys wheels.

Is this because it is time for them launch 1.6 L Diesel on the Linea, that they're liquidating some stocks?

BH.

Dear Friends,

Best of luck for those who book one.

Please keep in mind this fact: FIAT had upgraded the quality of their Linea and Punto this year and they might still have some old stock. It will be nice to check the date of manufacture of the winning Linea, because I feel this can be a stock clearance trick from FIAT (may be my bad mind )!!!

@okvinu - have to agree with you, it's your bad mind.

If in a lucky draw you get a Linea, even form the previous batches, it's a fantastic win!
