    They said that it would be launched in 2014. No idea about probable date or month.

    Also, as usual they didnt clarify about any changes planned already. Lets see what all things they modify in due course of time.

    I hope those circular dials above the center AC vents stay. :)

    Launch is scheduled in 2nd half, expect it to be near sept-oct timeline.
    How will it be in real, we have to wait and Pune guys need to keep an eye to catch test vehicle.

    Yes, I was curious to know what those dials are, but later got to know it is something to do with gradient (position of the vehicle with respect to ground level). That's already present in Palio Adventure locker which isn't in Indian markets unfortunately :)

    Broken where? Please point out. There are lots of panel gaps and there is deficiency between instrument cluster and steering. Maybe it will have a tilt and telescopic steering.

    Those blue light in the panel gaps seen intentional near the front passenger airbag area. Only it needs to be made more consistent.

    Look at the point where the top and bottom plastic plates are fused near the ignition .Towards the end you will see a small hole with something sticking out.

    Ok. Yes thanks. But I feel its not broken but a part of the covered up deficiency. I am posting a cropped out pic from a full resolution pic below.

    These will be taken care off in the production variant for sure.

    Nice report Yashik.

    Do the new Linea MJD also got the Cruise Control?

    Yes. Both the cars had cruise control stalk. MJD as well as TJET.

    ORVM have turn indicators. Small storage space above center console AC vents were some of the other small things I noticed.

    Glove box is illuminated and footwell had blue illumination IIRC. There were Fiat branded sill plates. More photos coming your way on this thread.

    Datta did not have memory card so my camera's memory card was borrowed by him. These pics have been taken by me using my phone.

    Exactly what I mean by fabric insert and finish

    Engine compartment seems familiar (no 1.6MJD at the time of launch)

    Blue&Me USB port got stylish and got a new partner (AUX port)

    Front end is as stylish as current Linea. Rear of current Linea is much better (subjective opinion)

    ORVM have blinkers

    Beautiful instrument console !!!

    Hope medias played from USB are now controllable from the console instead of steering mounted controls.
