The picture with the TNSRTC Bus makes the Linea stand out as a real beauty.
Was it taken somewhere near Thoppur ghats? It's a nice place to test the cornering abilities but with caution though. (I see Krishnagiri written on the board! )

And your Kid is wearing his seat-belt. Nice.

That was somewhere between Hosur and Krishnagiri, I think after A2B. Yeah, I always make sure all of us are belted up, children on their booster seats as well. (though they don't like it too much).

Congrats on your new ride, and those pics are really nice. I like the blue&me functionality, helpful and keeps your attention on the driving. Other cars should have this as standard too.

Default congrats

Congrtatulations Viking.
I am happy to have one more Linea owner. I have Linea and got delivery on 2nd Feb. Its truely a very good car. I have many a times stated at team bhp that the Linea is not at all under powered and yes the top 3 gears are better. Also the turning radius is good if not best. But taking into consideration the length its pretty good.
In one of your statements you have mentioned to deduct 4 from the FE shown in the display. Can you please explain me how does this calculation work?
Also i need to know the reboot thing of the Blue and Me. I mean if i disconnect the battery, wont my other settings as trip meters and paired mobiles with blue and me get affected?
And which mobile do you use? I have N70 and the Blue and Me does not read the msges received. Can you please explain me is there any way I can activate this feature. Apart from this my mobile is working proper with the Blue and Me. Ya but when i give numbers (digits) it gets confused and does not select proper numbers. Never could I call that way. Do you have any idea about this? If yes than please let me know.
Have happy motoring buddy and keep updating your reviews.

Nice Car, its a total VFM buy with all the gadgetry that it has. I sincerely hope that it lives up to your expectations with drive comfort and the Tata after sales.

All the best.

Congratulations Viking ....a Great Choice indeed ..the Linea !!!

Did you also consider the Petrol (FIRE engine) version before buying your MultiJet ???? What is your take on the FIRE Engine (if you test drove it i.e.) .....I test drove Linea Petrol Emotion Pk and liked everything about the drive.....Actually i was so overwhelmed by what i saw of the car in the showroom that i was less attentive while driving .....i just loved the Blue& ME and the Consolr features (Economy figures/ distance to refill etc.) ....What just got my 100% vote was the look of the car from rear ...it is just too classy ...a D-segment car is what it looks like ...... I would like to know what is the Right Engine for Linea - best of the 2 (if not both) - FIRE or MULTIJET ???!!!!!!! THANKS ALL

Viking, congratulations on a lovely buy. The car is eye-poppingly good, and I am all admiration for your seatbelt rule. Safe driving and many more happy miles to come!

A car with character! Congrats, Viking!

...raining Lineas? Maybe in 'out of coverage' areas. I've yet to see one in the flesh though!
