    Yeah, though I must admit that the car feels a bit underpowered in lower gears but 3rd gears onwards you dont feel that lag much.

    Moreover, I am not a person who likes to press the paddle hard so that doesn't bother me. The ride quality, driveability with good fuel economy is what I was looking for and Linea MJD exceeds my expectation in those areas.

    BTW, congrats for your Tjet, its a wonderful engine in all sense. I took its test drive and it was just awesome. The engine was highly responsive and eager to revv hard. Had it not been the FE and < 1L price difference, I would have gone for it.

    How much is the FE for your Tjet?

    Today I saw first Facelifted Linea on Road (Last one was seen at FASS only). It looks Smashing and road presence is intact as ever!
    Wondering why it is not selling good, it's still easily by far, best looking car.

    Only saw New Linea's in White colour only. The other colours like Tucson wine.... or even Black would look smashing with all that handsome chrome job.
    Hope to see one soon, New Linea T_jet is an absolute loot at it's price... Ahhh you dumb Indians (Baaa Baaaa Sheep) and your Honda AMAZE-ment full of Plastic and **** :p

    Thanks man. The fuel economy is around 10.5 to 11+, AC always on at 22c, Delhi-Gurgaon traffic. No open highway runs yet, but the t-jet on NH8 at night is fun, not that i am given to speed-mad auto-hooliganism, which btw the t-jet makes too easy!

    Hi All,
    Recieved a call today from the SA that the car has arrived in the yard. will be going to have an inspection tomorrow and make the payment. Hopefully will take the delivery in the mid of next week after all RTO formalities are done. I am going for self purchase of insurance policy, any inputs are most welcome.

    Thanks.

    gr8 car but Fiat is still lagging in sales as compared to others. I guess they are not able to market this gr8 product in India

    Fiat sales have been growing well for the last 5-6 months. It is still early days since Fiat 'made the move' to independent sales and service. Their marketing and advertising has improved too. More to be done by them, though.

    IMO: the truth is most car-buyers in these segments are poorly informed, first or second-time car buyers who are excessively risk-averse, and so prefer going with the dominant market choice..

    If it were only Fiat's fault, then how would you explain the market's refusal to accept Nissan, Renault (other than Duster), Skoda, VW (sales way below targets), Chevrolet and even Ford (other than Ecosport)?

    This is the world's hardest market to crack, Fiat's doing OK of late, they'll have to keep at it till Jeep comes next year, that will boost their profits.
