    I agree. It definitely looks better than the old Dezire. But, still ugly.
    Bala, are you already in queue? :)

    Dzire cant be compared with punto,Ride quality and handling of punto is miles ahead than dzire.I use to say some excuse whenever my brother calls me for a long drive in his dzire.I was really admired by the comfort levelz that a fiat offer,after a drive on a linea to banglore.Actually its after that trip i use to make silly excuses not to drive a dzire

    Bad A.S.S. from Maruti? You would have been banned for life if you post this other forums :).

    BTW, just going thru the news that Maruti has increased the prices of its cars from Rs. 2400 to Rs. 17,000.
    For SX4, they have increased by Rs. 2,400
    For Swift Diesel, they have now increased by Rs. 17,000.

    I think the ZDI OTR will soon be touching 9L in Bangalore.

    Sorry mate, the 2011 Linea Diesel Emotion Pack weighs in at 1290kg's. Please see the attached pic from the owner manual of our 2011 Linea Diesel E+.

    So, the weight difference between the Punto 90hp and Linea Diesel E+ ( same engine) comes out to be 146kg's. Quite a lot.

    Yes, the 2012 model seems to have shed 80kg. Would be interesting to see how it did that.

    Cheers.

    To my best knowledge, both Punto and Linea had undergone weight reduction post July'2010. Before that Punto 1.3 75 Hp was weighing 1190 Kgs and Linea MJD was weighing 1291 Kgs. After July'2010, Punto 75 was reduced to 1130 and Linea MJD to 1210.

    That said, any Linea that was manufactured in 2011 will be weighing 1210 Kgs and not 1290 kgs. I think Fiat missed to update the User Manuel when they did this change. If you still have doubts, I will try to find and post the brochure of 2011 Linea :).

    Perfect.

    Classic case of no-updation of the manual. I stand corrected. And i was feeling good i have the heavier Linea :p
