    Vinodh, Rear seat is not foldable in any version of New Linea. That feature is there in Punto Evo. Extended warranty they are not giving as of now,upon enquiring they are saying that some tussle ongoing between Fiat and insurance company and once it gets resolved they will start the extended warranty.

    New Linea's rear seat is no longer foldable now. And sadly FIAT has stopped offering extended warranty

    I had asked about this at Jay Vijay a week back. The accessories person said that it could be available in 2-3 months along with the reverse camera.

    Thanks for the information sir...That's seriously bad on FIAT's part...That utility feature would be an awesome addition...Anyways can't help it now...On the insurance, Aftab from KHT who is handling the booking part at my end too informed that the extended warranty has been removed as of now and I can avail it if and when it comes into effect within the completion of the 3 year normal warranty from FIAT.

    Hello Both,
    First thing is that I as informed that the infotainment system has been billed at 43k...!!!

    Secondly, You can get the same here -> http://www.virtueindia.in/product/infotainment-system-for-linea-2014/ . This comes with added features and also comes with a remote. This is the same system as in the Elegante. I wanted to buy this and later was informed by Santhosh of VirtueIndia that an Android based system is due in October and have gone ahead and ordered it. He had sent me the pictures and they look the same. Same system for far less than that from FIAT.

    Checked with Santhosh and fitting this involves no cutting chopping for the existing wires and hence no warranty void issues... :happy: ...Santhosh is friendly and is a fellow Grande Punto owner...

    @Vinodh_Gowda

    Since that is Android based, please check whether Blue&Me will work with the system.

    @nikhil0405 As per website, it is compatible with BnM keeping steering mounted controls functional. If everything mentioned on site is true then its a great news.

    Had already confirmed that...He specifically mentioned it works...Best part, connect phone to BLUE n Me and if there is any other bluetooth music device, if can be connected to the system's bluetooth...

    Android version sports mirror link wherein you can beam the contents on phone screen to the device...This system is also capable of playing DVRs...

    This looks good from the description. Hopefully voice commands too will work.
    I am sure many will be waiting to read your experience.
