Fiat has launched an automatic transmission version of the Linea, called the Linea Dualogic. Fiat claims that their Dualogic transmission provides 10 per cent better mileage than traditional auto gearboxes and 3 to 5 per cent better mileage than manual gearboxes.

Also launched is the Linea T-Jet, which comes powered by the latest generation Fiat petrol engine. This turbocharged engine puts out a power of 108bhp (110PS).

Fiat has also launched three new variants of the Grande Punto, called 'Natural Power', 'Sport' and 'Trendz'. Natural Power is a new dual fuel variant that runs on both petrol and CNG. The car can run for 1,000 km without a refuel. There is no compromise on boot space as the CNG kit has been innovatively package below the boot. Fiat is the largest selling brand of CNG cars in Europe, having sold 200,000 units in 2009.

The Sport comes powered by the 75bhp, 1.3-litre Multijet engine, but boasts funky styling - a snazzy paint job, electric sunroof, rear spoiler, sporty decals and dual-coloured interior leather seats.

The Trendz is a limited edition petrol variant that comes powered by the 1.2-litre petrol engine.

A special edition Fiat 500 customised by Diesel, the fashion brand, has also been launched. This 500 comes in three colour options - Diesel Black, Diesel Bronze and Diesel Green. The Diesel 500 sports unique 16 inch Diesel logo alloys, yellow painted brake calipers, flared rearview mirrors and eye-catching front end whiskers. The interiors are also styled by Diesel, with denim upholstery and yellow stitching. The car is available with the regular engine and gearbox options.
