Default Re: Fiat Linea 2013 - Spy Shot

To much chrome added, the front facia now appears a bit one step over design, its not necessarily improves the beauty but makes it look a bit mature, again it goes both ways I didn't like it, back has the same treatment trying to make it look mature, I think the chrome bar at back are way to thick. I think its pretty safe to say the original linea is still a looker.

Not sure what they were up to then they had three mini display clusters, I had hoped they will move the media display to the media panel rather than the driver display at dash.

I love the dark or steel grey paint, wish my tj+ had same colour :P

I never liked the new front but with each passing day it grows on me. It now looks good and mature (or am i resigned to the fact).

The interiors looks stunning, far better than the current generation models.

The rear is a disappointment. I personally liked the plain boot with number plate on the bumpers. Too much crome and the boot with number plate looks spoiled/cluttered.

Would help Fiat improve sales further if the 1.6 mjd with 6 speed gears is launched in India (atleast a wishlist).

Presicely.. the looks have started to grow on me slowly as I see it again and again. With those interiors and decent engine options it must do decent numbers. and did anyone notice the 1.3 producing 96bhp. I thought it was 90 bhp or 93 ps.

Is it the Multi Jet 2 that develops slightly higher power? Anyways more power is always a welcome.

The present Linea looks better and a lot less fussy at the front. Looks were never an issue for the Linea.

Nice interior upgrades.

I agree. I too am not happy about the new front end design. Interiors look brilliant. Hope this car combined with Fiat's plan to improve A.S.S. brings some good fortune to consumers

I still don't understand the meaning behind this thread. Has there been any evidence of the launch of new Linea any time soon in the Indian market?
