    Linea T-Jet review on Overdrive in just a few minutes. Now showing on CNBC TV18 @1pm. Let's see if they give a genuine review.

    I did not see the program, I read on TBHP that they tested 0-100 in 11.1 sec which is close to 11.14 claimed by Fiat.

    I saw that program and they gave it a very good initial rating. Nothing new though apart from what we already know

    Reviewer: They sent that very 7 feet guy for initial road test.
    Car: Linea T-Jet in Fot Trot Azure(FTA) color.

    He review started with regular Linea. He talked of how well Linea is loaded in terms of features, it's looks, ride quality, handling and then talked of it's lack of power. Fiat has now introduced a turbocharged petrol engine to address all those issues. This is a first turbo charged petrol car in this segment and competes with ANHC and Vento all the top most level.

    Then, he talked of the advantages of smaller capacity turbo engines over higher capacity NA engines and that these are the next thing we may be seeing more frequently in future.

    Finally, he said that they did some timings and the 0-100 timings were close to 13seconds. After this, they said in the back ground that this timing is good considering that it wasn't a proper road test and also the guys were not experienced enough in 0-100 testing. A full road test will be done after Fiat launches the car.

    T-Jet highlights as per OD: Turbocharged petrol engine so lots of torque across the lower rev range, "improved plastics and fit and finish" with soft touch plastics, better FE as compared to other cars in the segment(having higher capacity NA petrols).

    Schumacher no longer represents Fiat nor Ferrari. He now represents Mercedez, therefore it would not be possible for him to appear for T Jet.
