FIAT\'s Silver Linea in the Clouds!!!

By Manisha for Fiat Linea 2012-2014

Linea - which translates into Line in English, is FIAT India\'s latest offering for a market in quite a while. While everything that can go wrong has gone wrong for FIAT until date... this might just be the car that brings back everything in line (pun unintended:)) for Fiat.
About the car, well one look at it on the rear page of this months economic times had my heart fluttering, the Maroon car on the page ( I learnt later that its - Flamenco Red & not Maroon ) looked sleek, Upmarket, Expensive and LOOOONGGGG...
Well, so I set off to test drive it and find out just how long it was, and shiver me timbers - the Linea is longer than the Innova... yes the Toyota Innova. It was unbelievable.
The Linea comes with 2 mills, one the FIRE Petrol & the Multijet Diesel... the last time FIAT stickered a car with FIRE(Fully Integrated Robotized Engine, for the uninitiated) on it was the record breaking UNO.
And each mill comes in 3 variants - Active, Dynamic & Emotion, with the latter 2 coming with additional packages.
Since I test drove only the top end FIAT Linea Emotion Pack Diesel, I have been over the world, if there was one car I intended to buy @ less than 10 lakhs, I would choose only the Linea... think about it ABS, Airbags, Blue & Me, 15 feet of car, 500lts boot, all the frills and fancies of a premium segment car like - rear A/C, Rear Seat handrest, the FANCY MY CAR 1 & MY CAR 2 package are awesome.
Diesel mill of 90bhp and you have a car which can compete with the CIVIC for a CITY price, and its DIESEL !!!!
I cant think about a car which offers soo much for only 9.6Lakhs.
The claimed Fuel efficiency by the Company is 16kmpl for the 1.3 Multijet diesel - wonderful for a car this size.
Though it is longer than the CIVIC, the Linea has a much shorter wheelbase than it, so it should be a breeze over most BAD roads.
To end this review all I can say is - with the Linea you have a diesel car with the features and size of a CIVIC at the cost of a CITY !!!
The competition Linea has been drawn, and FIAT have got a winner in their stable !!!

    Fiat Linea is a must buy...

    Fiat Linea is a classic sedan with exceptionally large trunk of 500L and an exceptionally fuel efficient engine with the given kerb weight. The car moves swiftly in traffic with the turbo charger and on highway handles well wih the hydraulic steering that weighs more, proportionately with the speed. The car has enough space, legroom and headroom and the rear Read More
