      But then ,you go and spoil the slowcoach brotherhood by saying it's not as slow as I'm portraying it.

      To enlighten you more as you are willing to have a look at performance figures, with open mind without outright bashing ,below are some of the facts. Some people may again try to say Linea is a slowcouch, but figures say otherwise.

      And the source for the figures is?

      The thing I hate about roll-on figures is, each one has their own method. Some use 20-80 in 3rd, some use 30-80 in 3rd. Then there is always a worry of how these roll-on tests were done. Do you maintain a steady speed of 20 or 30kmph and then floor till 80? Or do you just drop out of boost in 3rd let the car coast and then floor the throttle and from the figures pull out the 20-80 or 30-80 timings? Assuming that this will be accurate only when done on a Vbox and nothing else.

      That is why 0-100 and 1/4 mile figures are still considered *standard*. There is no descripency on how to achieve the fastest times. Get a good launch and shift asap to reach the ton mark.

      Plus those stats look really old and I see a lot of the cars are missing in that list. How old is it anyway?

      All compiled by another forum from the same sources which you have. Do you see any discrepancy in them?
      Now the way its done one one car was done on other cars as well.

      Let me see if there is updated list, but the cars being fought over are already in the list.

      Its a proven fact that Linea is heavy, 1nd and 2nd gears have nothing in them and this is where the time is lost. So the 0-100 figures, which you totally rely on are the slowest.
      But in gear acceleration and dribablity is very good on the linea. I personally drive linea almost every day and i can vouch for it that its not at all slow.

      Not a laughing stock. Its quicker when it comes to ingear acceleration or when its rolling on the road.
      When i try to pick up from dead stop i feel frustrated while linea passes thru 1st and 2nd gear. As soon as the 3rd gear is slotted things dramatically change.

      Why don't you guys also talk on the figures you got in your own tests? I believe most of you guys have tested many cars and have tools to record timings. That would be much interesting if discussion progresses on the basis of real life tests. My two cents.

      I also found one interesting but OT topic the braking distance. I dont know the figures on linea MJD now. Fiat changed all the older braking sytem to better Alfa Romeo ones. New brake calipers and better brake pads. But TJET stops as if someone threw a 20 ton anchor to haul it .

      Ya had it been in same city and same equipment i would have been more glad to get my cars for testing. 0-100, in gear, in traffic, highway, curvy roads, bouncy roads etc.

      This will give practical picture. Theorotical sheets i have already put up. These are the same figures that are used to showcase that a fiat is slow. But facts say they are not as slow , so they stand where they are when put up against other cars.

      ^ Mi10 now get rid of pushing your Logan/Verito to limits to achieve those 0-100 figures on your tab using OBD, see how terrible the braking ability your car has, and yeah, forget about doing such tests on your Fiesta as well.

      Whats surprising is that, the top 10 in the above lists are the cars that are not selling that much in India except for the vento. What was actual purpose of these tests? Were they published somewhere? Can you posts the link to them? Would be interesting to see the other results.
