Nevertheless, Fiat India sticks to its motto of ‘Crafted for Car Lovers’ by launching a new variant of the sedan called the Linea 125 S, which as the name suggests, has a 1.4-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder engine which produces 123 BHP, making the Linea the most powerful sedan in its class.

The Fiat Linea is a C-segment sedan that technically should be the segment topper as the car is the longest sedan in its class and has the largest boot. But all of its soulful driving dynamics and steering setup brimming with emotional feelings is of no use in India as words like ‘fuel efficiency’ and ‘service station’ are more important here than ‘horsepower’ and ‘handling’.

Also, to spice things up, Fiat has also thrown in a 5-inch touch-screen infotainment system with navigation, ambient lighting, rear sun curtain and disc brakes on all four wheels. All this, for a price tag that starts from just Rs 7.82 lakhs (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

The hatchback sibling of the Linea sedan is also known for its timeless styling and handling characteristics, which ensure that you will be confident doing any speed, be it your friendly neighbourhood turnpike or the corkscrew at Laguna Seca.

To strengthen the car’s enthusiastically tuned driving pretensions, Fiat has decided to plonk the 93 PS, 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine and the 5-inch touch screen infotainment system across all variants.

Fiat calls them the PowerTech series, which starts at Rs 6.81 lakhs for the Fiat Punto Evo and Rs 7.87 lakh for the Avventura. Fiat now has a single diesel engine in India which is the 1.3-litre unit that is offered in only one tune.
