    @abhinit90: Correct. Linea is longer than altis. In turkey Linea compete with Fluence.

    For example(source carwale)

    kerb weight : 1180/1215
    Boot : 500/475
    Wheel base : 2603/2600
    OH(mm): 1487/1480
    OW(mm) :1730/1760
    OL(mm): 4560/4540
    0-100(in sec): 10.6/11.8

    Did Fiat miss the trick of placing Linea in competition to altis?
    If the interior was good and in competition with corolla it would have created a good image.
    After 1 year, FIAT could have introduced Siena or any other sedan available in city range

    OH(mm): 1487/1480
    OW(mm) :1730/1760
    OL(mm): 4560/4540

    What about power to price ratio or torque to power ratio. MJD will keep altis in dustbin.(apart from the fact that D4D is a good engine)

    I think Fiat doesn't sell Linea with 1.3 MJD in Europe.So its only India where it has stripped down the MJD to 1.3 in Linea. So thats the reason of positioning in the different class.Talking about ALTIS,what can I say?Its of no use comparing because you people know about Indian herd mentality.:A
    One of my friend who owns Honda city is of the impression that Honda makes the best petrol engines in the world,I just asked him to have look at T-JET.

    Fiat should market Tjet properly. Many people doesn't know that it is a turbo. For many people turbo means diesel. Fiat should bring out 1.2 turbo and then all all k series and vtec will vanish to infinity.

    Nobody says that Altis is under power.

    What about 90ps 210 NM skoda octavia with 1.9 TDI . Only when it comes to Fiat this under power issue comes.

    FIAT has been unbelievably stupid in introducing the powerful cars despite they have one of the best technologies. It feels & looks more default & proper with FIAT vehicles than Hyundai's,Suzuki or Honda!! No other words but just bad luck for Indian FIATians!! They have been focusing more on Europe, even ditching their biggest markets like Brazil/South American countries. They still sell those 1.8 ltr E-Torq (130-140 Bhps) in Brazil/south America & Europe gets 1.7 Tbi turbo petrol (240 bhp, 350 NM@1900 RPM):mrgreen:.
    Yes, you heard right, it's not a diesel engine with that monster torque & is no typo. Not only this, next update 1.7ltr Tbi (more than 300 BHP) is slated to launch by the year end, obviously in Europe & not Brazil/India:dance.

    On the top of that, Europe has been kicking FIAT with no pity what so ever since more than 20 Yrs now. "FIAT" is more like "FOOTBALL" there, they deserve it.
    When it comes to specific outputs, FIAT has been the torch bearer. It's height of bad-luck in India that we have just this 1.2 ltr diesel to compare with the rest of the world:( which is an 8-Yr old effort started with 2004 Panda in Europe!! By the same schedule, may be we will get MJD-2 by 2018.We can compare more favorably then. Keeping fingers crossed & waiting anxiously:chair:...
