Remember the bright blue coloured Linea 125 S concept at the Auto Expo 2016? It is finally on sale now at an ex-showroom price of 10.10lakh, ex-Delhi and only in the top-spec Emotion variant. Along with this, Fiat India also added more features to the Linea as well as Punto range. On the Fiat Linea 125 S, thisincludes a new 5-inch touchscreen music system with navigation, rear sun blind and cruise control . The 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine has been tunedto make 125PS/210Nm, 11PS and 10Nm more than the older motor. While this gives it the bragging rights of being the most powerful C-segment sedan, this doesn't necessarily translate into good performance. In our test, the Fiat Linea 125 S raced to 100kmph in 10.4s. However, the car is a hoot to drive with the way she balances her ride and handling. You can read more about this latest Fiat here in our road test review and scroll below for the photos.
