Fiat Linea T-Jet 2012


The Fiat Linea is a small family car released on March 26, 2007 at the Tofa plant in Bursa, Turkey, by the Italian automaker Fiat as a world car in developing countries. It replaced the aging Marea as the largest saloon in the Fiat range. It is based on the current Fiat Grande Punto platform. The Linea was designed by Fiat Style Centre and co-developed by Tofa ( joint venture between the Fiat Group and Koc Holding) and Fiat do Brasil.
Linea's size is similar to saloon versions of small family cars, like the Ford Focus, Mazda 3 and Vauxhall / Opel Astra. Its wheelbase is 2,603 mm (102.5 in), i.e. 100 mm (3.9 in) longer than its sister models, and its total length is 4,560 mm (179.5 in) or 500 mm (19.7 in) longer.
The first launch, in Turkey in 2007, was initially available with a 1.4 Fire gasoline engine and 1.3 Multijet diesel engine. Then the 1.4 Turbo Jet engine with 120 PS and 1.6 diesel with 105 PS made available to the market. The production at Tofas plant is mostly aimed for local Turkish, whereas CBUs are shippsed to EU market and CKD components are shipped to Tatarstan plant of Fiat joint venture in Russia.
Launched in September 2008 in Brazil, Linea was available with a 1.9 L 16v "Torque" engine with 132 PS (97 kW; 130 hp), flexible for the Brazilian market (capable of using petrol or ethanol). Also in Brazil Linea is available with a 1.4 L 16v T-Jet engine with 152 PS (112 kW; 150 hp), the same engine used in Fiat Grande Punto Abarth in Europe, capable of using only petrol, as this engine is imported.
In 2010 (2011 model) Fiat replaced the Torque engine (1.9 16v Flex) with a new 1.8 16v E.torQ, derived from old 1.6 16v SOHC Tritec engines used in Mini Cooper and Chrysler PT Cruiser. Fiat Power train Technologies changed the displacement from 1598 cc to 1747 cc and made it a flex fuel engine (etanol/petrol). Max power output was the same (compared with old Torque engine), but it would come earlier, and torque has increased from 183 N·m (135 lb·ft) to 185 N·m (136 lb·ft). Car performance was not so different, this was more a strategic decision for Fiat (using only E-Torq engines in Latin America).
Launched in January 2009 in India, the Linea is available with a 1.4 L Fire petrol engine 90 PS (66 kW; 89 hp), 1.3 L Multijet diesel engine and 93 PS (68 kW; 92 hp). Another variant of the Fiat Linea, which includes the much acclaimed 1.4 L T-JET Engine pumping out 114 PS (84 kW; 112 hp), was released on 8 October 2010 in India.[citation needed]
Fiat Linea runs in a different segment and has different competition in Brazil and India. In Brazil it is positioned against Honda Civic, Chevrolet Vectra (Opel Astra), Toyota Corolla, Citroen C4 Pallas, Nissan Sentra and Ford Focus whereas in India it is positioned in the upper C segment and goes against cars like Ford Fiesta, Honda City and Hyundai Accent/Verna.
This positioning has been done to gain a foothold in the Indian market and to achieve the reduced price several features such as the TS and ESC are optional.
Presently, four different variants of Fiat Linea available are Active, Dynamic, Emotion and Emotion Pack. A Linea Dynamic pack was also available earlier but has been discontinued since April 2010. All these variants are available with both petrol (1.4 L FIRE) and diesel (1.3 L Multi Jet) engine option. These versions are decided on the basis of price to content ratio in these vehicles.
Some Standard features of Fiat Linea include: automatic climate control, Blue & Me with steering mounted controls, speed sensitive front wipers and volume control, dual rear AC vents, Advanced Driver Information System (DIS) not found in many other cars.
Fiat Linea that marked the comeback of Fiat in the Indian market has now come up with Fiat Linea T Jet. The Linea T Jet is equipped with a 1.4L turbo charged petrol engine and shells out 114 PS (84 kW; 112 hp) at 5000 rpm and a striking torque of 207 N·m (153 lb·ft) at 2200 rpm. Acceleration and pick up impresses too, with Fiat Linea T Jet zooming from 0–100 km/h in 10.2 seconds and reaching to a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). Some additional features of Linea T-Jet (Indian version) include: 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/55 R16 tires having disc brakes on all four tires, Italian leather seats, increased ground clearance of {{Convert|185|mm|in|1|abbr=on}best in class better than any other sedan of the segment}, improved quality of interiors.
