    Fiat New Linea - Discussion

    Fiat should bring the 1.6 MJD or else I would be very disappointed. And I have no reason to upgrade, if there is no 1.6. Such a beautiful car to admire with amazing handling, my heart says go for it but my mind says that wont be a sensible option without the 1.6. And I got with my mind on this one.

    I doubt the same gearbox would do justice to the 1.6, so that would mean some difference manufacturing wise, inventory wise. And if they retain the same gearbox then that could also be a disaster in a way. :-|

    I suppose gearbox upgrade will be necessary correct..?

    The current gearbox cannot handle the 290 NM torque. The 1.6 MJD will definitely need the 6 speed box to do justice to the engine. If assembled here, it would need a different engine assembly line along with tooling which would need a substantial investment and not to forget the engine sharing agreement with TATA until 2015.

    A query to people who saw the new Linea in flesh at the auto expo:

    Has fiat fixed the spacing between the clutch and brake pedals in the footwell or is it still cramped like in the current one?
    Also, in the current one, the clutch is too long. Is it the same in the new one too?

    Even If it did, it would be total madness that It would do 30Kmph at 5000RPM! :E

    I didn't see the footwell of the car.

    I expect the gearbox and clutch to be the same. They haven't changed it mechanically and why should they as long as its the same 1.3MJD powering the diesel variant? Mechanical similarities between Punto and Linea 1.3 are helping Fiat keep the costs within a tolerable limit.
