2014 Fiat Linea T-Jet: Review
The Fiat Linea has a lot of things going for it. It is a good looking car, and one that handles well. The Linea Multijet diesel meanwhile is also efficient. You can read more about it here. But, the Multijet isn't exactly a driver's delight. The Fiat Linea with the T-Jet though, priced between Rs 7.43-9.01 lakh (ex-showroom,Mumbai), well, that’s a thoroughbred enthusiasts car all the way!
The Linea T-Jet is almost visually identical to its diesel sibling. With the exception of a larger chrome garnish on the tail pipe, one could easily mistake this little go-fast version for its more practical twin. Fiat, of course, has generously garnished the T-Jet with badges on the bootlid and the front fenders, but even those aren’t obvious enough.
The 2014 Fiat Linea T-Jet gets the new three slat grille and the new well crafted front bumper, all of which give the new Linea T-Jet a more upmarket feel. The new Linea also gets a set of multi spoke alloy wheels that look plain-jane at first glance but actually have a ton of smaller details in them.
As we mentioned in our Linea diesel review, the new interior is a Neil Armstrong sized step over the last one both in terms of design and overall finish. The old driver-centric cabin has now been replaced by a conventional symmetric design comprising of two rather curvaceous bulges on the dashboard. The interior quality is something we need to harp on again with the touch and feel of everything oozing a sense of class.
The centre console for example is festooned in a piano black finish with the infotainment system nestled nicely in the centre. Come nightfall, the insides are still draped with Fiat’s signature orange lighting with a sliver of orange light running across the dashboard. Although the Linea doesn’t have the number of gadgets as compared to say a Honda City, it is still a very fine place to be in.
