2012 Fiats Launch

Fiat has launched the 2012 Linea and 2012 Punto in India. However the 2012 versions are not much different than the 2011 counterparts and have no changes to their mechanicals whatsoever. Fiat has just changed features and variants and revised prices, keeping them introductory for the moment. Both the cars continue to be powered by the same 1.3-liter Multijet diesel and 1.4-liter FIRE petrol engines. The Grande Punto is also powered by a 1.2-liter FIRE petrol engine. A new colour, Oceanic Blue also debuts on the 2012 Fiats. Fuel efficiency is improved on both the Punto and Linea. The diesel Linea now returns 20.4 kmpl while the petrol Linea returns 14.6 kmpl. The Punto 1.2 returns 15.2 kmpl, the Punto 1.4 returns 14.6 kmpl and the Punto 1.3 diesel returns 20.3 kmpl. Fiat also revealed its plans to open 22 exclusive Fiat branded showrooms across India in 2012. These will be in agreement with Tata Motors. The 2012 Fiat Linea and Grande Punto now have a ground clearance of 185mm, with the Punto 1.2 Petrol having a ground clearance of 195mm.
