I think they plonk the same engine in the new punto sports, which will make it a hot hatch.

Apart from the change in diesel is there any change in the petrol engine? Or does it remain putt?

Does the increase in power have to do with emission norms or customer feedback ? The torque has also been increased in the Linea, most likely for city driving.

If emission was the case even the Punto would have got a few more horses.

The BS4 ones will come with a sticker on them.

I sincerely hope the punto will also get a power upgrade.

Linea diesel was not BS4 compliant, only the petrol version was.

Fiat launched the Euro5 engine with 95bhp and hence we get the same but detuned for us.

to Fiat for sharing things with us.

I think the improvement is marginal. The Linea power-plant should ideally be pushing out about 105-110 horses (at the wheels).

I think the second generation Lancia Ypsilon has an option for 105 PS, with the same engine.
