    I hope they don't surprise us again with 75 bhp MJD in the New Linea Active version. :)

    75ps MJD is still sold as Linea Classic. What is interesting is 1.4 Fire Classic vs 1.4 Fire 2014 Linea.

    Very attractive and reasonable pricing.
    Glad that the old beautiful Linea is also sold.

    Though they did not add an extra cost to all that extra chrome (or is it pseudo chrome, plastic), note that it would cost heavily if the car goes for a repair job.
    To me it's wrong for Fiat to think that the whole nation loves chrome and wrap around where ever possible,the only areas spared being the front and rear glasses. They have made a Rakhi sawant out of an Ishwarya rai:(

    Myself and Krishna (nkrishnap) did attended New linea unveiling at Vecto Motors, Bangalore. My goodness, the new linea looks fabulous than on pics posted every where.

    Vecto Motors MD and Krishna (nkrishnap) did honors of unveiling the beauty. It was White MJD standing there. Around 30 odd people were present at the event.

    The quality work done inside is really way way better than earlier models.

    Took a TD of New linea TJet version. Most of the things already written by nkrishnap at http://www.teamfiat.co.in/linea-1-4-t-jet/11768-linea-facelift-2014-test-drive-review.html holds true though i did not do a detailed TD like him. I am impressed by the this car.

    Bravo FIAT, good Job :clap

    Attended the New Linea launch at Fiat Caffe, Bangalore.

    As planned, went there @4.30PM. Few people were prsent already. Chatted with Deepak and Adit, we waited for sometime for others to join.

    At around 5.15-5.30PM, small program started.

    Deepak started initial speech.

    I was invited first to speak as Fiat Owner.
    Few others owners spoke as well, one of them was TFIns (sorry forgot your handle).

    Had some talk with Adit and one perspective buyer, Mr Merchant (I think he booked New Linea T-Jet today itself).
    Had small snacks, drink.
    Left Caffe at 6.30PM, well spent small event.

    I was quite the sceptic before the New Linea was launched. Mostly regarding how the sacred design of the Linea should never be tampered with. But practicality demanded a refresh and after seeing the new Linea in the flesh at the Auto Expo, I can now rest assured that the job has not been botched. Slight revisions have given the exterior a more elegant yet a more muscular feel in some areas.

    The interior is definitely a step up in the design department. It has an old sense of familiarity yet it feels fresh. On the exterior side, I wish FIAT had scaled down the use of the chrome but I guess market feedback demands chrome so chrome it shall be.

    The Sunbeam Gold is one color which you need to see in person to truly appreciate. I'm a big fan of it.

    Here's wishing Godspeed to FIAT!!
