Default Foxtrot Azure Linea MJD Emotion Pack - Ownership report

Finally, my dream to own a Linea, especially in Foxtrot Azure color has been realized. Its been long 8 month wait, though!

I had mentioned in one of the Linea posts earlier about my mail exchange with Aashish Bhardwaj, Product Manager, FIAL regarding the availability of this color. I wrote to him a couple of days back & he finally confirmed that FIAT has started to produce Linea in this color as well. This is what he wrote back-

Dear Mr Bhaskar,
We have just started producing the Linea in Fox Trot Azure colour. The dispatches for the same should also begin very soon. I would request you to please contact the local dealer for ascertaining the availability in your city.

Regards,

Aashish Bhardwaj
Product Manager, FIAL



So, I went across to Sterling Automobiles, Noida on 8th August & booked my Linea in Foxtrot Azure color. I had been dealing with this showroom since Linea was launched & this salesperson had by now realized that I would buy the car only when this color would be available. However, to my surprise, no one in the showroom had iota of information about the availability of this color & hence were very reluctant to go further. But when I showed them the mail sent by Mr. Aashish, they agreed to book the car. The expected delivery timelines are around the end of August, perhaps in the first lot of cars in Foxtrot Azure color to be delivered in NCR region.

So everyone who had been patiently waiting for this color can start their rounds of discussion with TATA-FIAT dealers.

Waiting eagerly now..

Watch this space for further updates.

forbhaskarm! Congrats on booking the first Foxtrot Azure Linea of TBHP. and hope u are the first person on TBHP to take delivery of the same too!. FTA is a good colour and makes the classy looking car more classy, just like the Vocal White and Minimal Grey.

Thank you friends. I really hope the car looks as brilliant & classy in real as it looks in various photos that we've all seen.


@msk_kapoor - The Medium Grey color has been a recent addition along with the Bossa Nova White - I guess only a month back. The FIAT website has not yet been updated with the new color - FT Azure.

Congrats on being the first to book that lovely shade of blue.That colour looks beautiful in the pictures on the web. This is what team-bhpian chetan had clicked at Concorde Bangalore in 2008 I believe. It gives you a realistic idea of what the LInea would look like in that blue.

You see those differences because this particular car is a left hand drive (see the second pic closely) and was imported for display at Concorde and not made locally then. Hence, the reverse sensors and different rims (look like 16 inchers to me)

@ Roms - Thanks for uploading these pictures.

True - the real look of the car in this color is quite different than the pictures on web. But, I guess it does look classy (my observation !) like the Vocal White - perhaps gives it an executive car look.

The colour is stunning. I should have waited for them to release these colours. What are the other colours that are getting released?. Is there any way to repaint our cars to a new colour?

Eventhough this color doesn't look as striking as in the pics, its still great.
IMO it's a nice balance between a dark vs light shade. Also gives one that exclusive stately look.

I am always worried looking at scratch/swirl marks on my FlamencoRed :(
