Dear Experts Which is one better to choose between used Fiat Linea Petrol 1.4(Fire) or Linea Diesel 1.3. Mileage is not my concern. Which better for City, Long drive & up-hill driving
By Logesh 07 July 2015

If mileage of the vehicle doesn't concern you, go for the petrol variant. Petrol engine will definitely outsmart the diesel engine especially in city and up-hill driving. And please keep in mind, difference in the petrol and diesel prices is about Rs20 per liter.

Dear Experts
Thanks for your guidance.
When we compare the Power & Torque between the variance:
1) Linea Petrol, 1.4 Fire is - 90 PS / 6000 rpm: 115 Nm / 4500 rpm
2) Linea Petrol, 1.4 T-Jet is - 114 PS / 5000 rpm: 207 Nm / 2200 rpm
3) Linea Diesel, 1.3 M-Jet is - 93 PS / 4000 rpm: 209 Nm / 2000 rpm

T-Jet here is clear winner in performance during uphill driving.
I could not understand how the Fire Petrol is better than M-Jet Diesel which has very low torque. Please make me understand.

The 1.4 T-Jet gets a turbocharged engine hence the power. The 1.4 Fire petrol is slightly better performing as it gets a 1.4 Liter engine as compared to diesel which has 1.3 litre engine.
