    Congrats for your new Linea.
    One of the best thing that Fiat have done recently is giving 16" alloys for Linea MJD Emotion.

    Agree with you 100% about the crap speakers put in Linea. They are a shame.
  3. Congratulations nkrishnap on buying Linea.

    I do agree that music system really needs upgrade and it would have been better if Fiat would have improved music system in Absolute edition!

    Completed another 560 odd kms drive. The drive brought a wide grin again for its ride and handling.

    Used the boot perfectly. Bought a literal truck load of vegetables on the way back. The boot swallowed it without a complaint.

    Overall Mileage for the trip - 19.7 kmpl (MID). Yet to tank to check manual kmpl figure.

    The refueling stats for the car. Not considering the first tankup

    1st refill - 8th Sept 2012 - BPCL RR Nagar - 168 kms - 13.3 litres - 12.63 kmpl

    2nd refill - 9th Sept 2012 - IOCL MAdurai - 543 kms - 28.2 litres - 19.25 kmpl

    3rd refill - 10th Sept 2012 - IOCL Kollam - 363 kms - 22.79 litres - 15.93 kmpl

    4th refill - 14th Sept 2012 - HPCL Nagercoil - 334 kms - 22.5 litres - 14.84 kmpl

    5th Refill - 14th Sept 2012 - BPCL Thirumangalam - 235 kms - 11.02 litres - 21.32 kmpl

    6th Refill - 15th Sept 2012 - IOCL Madurai - 371 kms - 20.28 litres - 18.29 kmpl

    7th Refill - 16th Sept 2012 - IOCL Hosur - 411 kms - 22.2 litres - 18.51 kmpl

    Best FE - 21.32 kmpl
    Worst FE - 12.63 kmpl
    Overall FE - 17.28 kmpl

    All the numbers here are with AC and a few hours spent idling the car for AC.

    Still feel the engine needs to settle in for the numbers to improve.

    Impressive mileage for a brand new car. It should get better as you cover more miles.

    Congratulations nkrishnap sir,

    white looks smashing in linea,Even though TW looks better,white beats hollow in maintaining the color.

    I have driven kaygeefiat sir's 2012 linea to ooty meet.initially i am skeptical about its handling after a couple 0f km,it is not that significant to find fault when compared to 2010 model.

    best part is that it got stiff suspension which irons out all irregularities.
