The re-tuned engine makes the car the most powerful petrol sedan in its class. The car is slated for release later this year.
Ask any enthusiast that which car maker makes the most fun to drive budget vehicles and he will invariably point towards the Fiat showroom. The Italians are known for their gorgeous looking cars with impeccable handling and powerful engines. They also boast about the same in their adverts. Following this enthusiast oriented strategy, Fiat has showcased the Linea 125s with the 1.4-litre T-jet engine which has been re-tuned to produce 125 BHP of power instead of the usual 114 BHP.
The Linea 125s comes with a 5-speed manual gearbox and it is the most powerful sedan in its segment. Also, it is the only other turbocharged petrol car along with Volkswagen Vento TSI. The sedan also gets many cosmetic upgrades to make it look more sporty such as piano black grille and bumper inserts, black ORVMs, black wrapped roof and black 16-inch alloy wheels. The car gets a new 5-inch touch screen infotainment system along with navigation. It is expected to be priced a bit higher than the regular top spec Linea and will be launched later this year.
