Fiat Group Automobiles India Private Limited, a subsidiary of the Italian multinational automotive maker Fiat S.p.A., has decided to again roll out its much awaited 2013 Linea T-Jet sedan in the domestic car market on June 10, 2013. The relaunch of Fiat Linea T-Jet has been in the news for quite a while, since the company was expected to bring the powerful mid-size sedan in March this year. Therefore, Indian car enthusiasts will have to wait just few more days, in order to get behind the wheel of stellar new Fiat Linea T-Jet.
Under its hood, the 2013 Fiat Linea T-Jet is expected to come fitted with a powerful 1.4 litre turbocharged petrol power-mill that would develop superior performance than the present models. As per reports, the new Linea T-Jet would be powered by a 1.4 litre, 1368 cc, 4-cylinder petrol engine, which produces peak power and torque outputs of 112.5 bhp at 5,000 rpm and 207 Nm at 2,200 rpm, respectively. Further, the drivetrain incorporated in the upcoming Linea T-Jet would be a five-speed manual transmission system.
The new Fiat Linea T-Jet would feature many additional top draw comfort and convenience features in its overall package. The mid-size sedan is expected to come trimmed with a versatile touch screen infotainment system, GPS and satellite navigation, sporty alloy wheels, automatic climate control and stylish leather seats. The prices could be revised as well, which would highlight Linea T-Jet as a great value-for-money proposition among the domestic car enthusiasts, besides being market competitive.
At present, Fiat Group Automobiles India has just two models in the domestic product portfolio- the Punto premium hatchback and Linea mid-size saloon. Therefore, the company is working towards expanding its fleet by introducing more models in the domestic automobile space. The Punto Abarth is a powerful hatchback and is expected to enter India sometime around this year's Diwali festivities in October or November months. The Italian auto maker is also augmenting its sales and after-sales network on the Indian turf, and is working on projecting itself as a more approachable brand among domestic buyers.
