After the huge success of Linea & Punto Fiat India showed more powerful variant of Linea at the Auto Expo 2010 and they have launched the Linea T-Jet in Mumbai. Fiat has launched two variants of Linea T-Jet: T-Jet and T-Jet Plus. Linea T-Jet is powered by a 1.4 litre T-Jet engine which generates maximum power of 114 Bhp with maximum torque of 207 Nm. The new engine will boost the power which will remove the slow tag from the car.
Designed by the Fiat Style Centre, Linea T-Jet’s originality is summed up by elegant, distinctive styling, with captivatingly smooth, simple, uncluttered lines that give the car a dynamic, harmonious look. The Linea T-Jet is also unmistakably Italian, which confirms the brand’s intention to create a new Fiat family feeling, inaugurated with the Grande Punto and continued with the Fiat Bravo, while the forward, sloping windscreen, the drop-shaped headlights and the large front end sporting the new Fiat logo. In line with the dictates of the new standards, the grille of Linea T-Jet marks the dividing line between the bonnet and the front bumpers, and the latter taper off gradually until they meet the wheelarches. A ridge starts from the foglights, which link up to the sides, and incorporates them, linking up again at the centre with the lower air intake. And finally, a rib between the headlight and the foglight of Linea T-Jet makes the bumper look lighter and creates the same graphical motif. The sleek, faired headlights which extend towards the sides of the car suggest dynamism and a strong Italian imprint. Proposed with a single body type, Linea T-Jet conveys an impression of solidity, robustness and roominess, which is confirmed by the generous dimensions. On the side the styling is cut through by a ‘slash’ which starts from the middle of the wheelarch and dissolves into the rear, emphasising the car’s dynamic look. The emphatic, robust, muscular wheelarches give the Linea T-Jet a feeling of strength and solidity. And the same reassuring impression is conveyed by the rear end, with its elegant uncluttered line.
Interiors of Linea T-Jet are more or less same like the top of the line Emotion Pack variant of Linea. The lines that run inside the passenger compartment are harmonious and well balanced with the external lines, which combine with the generous glazing to create a friendly, light-filled environment that guarantees excellent interior roominess, and more comfort than you might expect from a conventional 3-box saloon in terms of ergonomics and space for the driver and passengers. Driving is made particularly enjoyable in Linea T-Jet by the position of the pedals, the steering wheel alignment, the position of the armrest and footrest, the excellent manoeuvring of the gearshift and the perfect visibility of the instrumentation and the main controls. The instrument panel of Linea T-Jet has been designed by Magneti Marelli and it has a clear family feeling with the latest Fiat models, with large, clearly visible characters, while the graphics of the instrumentation make the information easily and immediately legible. At night, the orange illumination allows the pupil to focus more rapidly when alternating between the dark of the road outside and the luminosity of the dashboard. The rear seat of Linea T-Jet is homologated for three passengers, and comes with a fixed or 40/60 split squab depending on the version. The rear seats are also fitted with Isofix attachments for child seats, and head-restraints are standard equipment on the side seats.
