    @Navtej – Driving my Fiat Linea Mutijet Diesel emo pk, I never felt any lack of power.In high ways, I never had problem overtaking and keeping the lead ahead of ANHC, DZire, Swift, Verna, SX4, Manza and many premium hatch backs, racing up to 170 kmph, leaving them a tiny spec on RV. So I always used to wonder what people write about "lack of power", "need more horses" etc. I think what matters is the over all build, suspension, steering, road grip, braking efficiency and ABS which should inspire confidence in a car and not a few horses or cc more. Fiat Linea definitely scores well above all other cars mentioned on these counts.
