View Gallery

The new Linea is a sedan car offered by Fiat brand and running quite successfully here for a long time since its first launch. Well, now company has launched its updated version in the market to give a life in ageing predecessor Linea. We tried our hand on this new yet quite similar-to-previous-one model and find it a really deserving competitor in India for same segment, let’s have a deep look.

Price:

– Offers good value for money.

– Linea petrol available at 6.99-9.01 lakhs while Linea diesel at 8.15-9.72 lakhs.

Engine details:

Diesel and petrol both fuel units available.

– Powerful 1.4 liter turbo petrol and 1.3 liter diesel produced impressive n suitable power and torque.

– Linea was the very first model in same segment to get turbo petrol, now VW Vento has it too, though.

– Still, transmission is just a 5-speed manual in both petrol and diesel trims, we were expecting automatic version too at least with its petrol mill like other same segment rivals.

– Mileage figures are satisfactory.

Performance:

– Linea is one of the best performing models in car market, especially its petrol variant.

– Fiat’s this sedan offers smooth ride and an amazing on-road handling.

– While turbocharged petrol engine does its best by offering a fun ride, diesel version also is vibration less and obviously provides a better fuel economy.

– Steering wheel is light and assists properly in balanced handling.

– Overall, a really deserving competitor to its rivals.

Space & Dimension:

– Fiat has increased the length of this trendy sedan which is making it slightly more spacious now.

– There is sufficient space at inside cabin for holding your small belongings etc, but legroom and headroom seems li’l bit cramped.

500 liters of luggage capacity is so much impressive and comparatively better.

Interior:

– Company has refreshed the interior of its classy sedan by adding features like new dashboard, cruise control, new audio system and many more.

– The inside cabin is now looking smarter and premium than before.

Exterior:

– Though, its exterior profile has not gained much change but just a touch-up has been done there.

– Still, the sedan already has an attractive glimpse and looks refined and cool.

Safety:

– Company has provided an assuring safety by equipping features like ABS (anti-lock braking system), dual airbags at front with early crash sensors, central door locking etc.

Verdict:

Fiat has done a great job by launching Linea 2014, though there are not much changes in it than predecessor but still it’s now have a new year look which will definitely give its sale a hike. Further, its performance has already thrilled its customers and price is also quite competitive. So overall it’s a good package. Though, it has a really tough competition in market in the form of Honda City, Hyundai Verna etc.
