Question
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

Answers:

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.
