There seem to be some difference between what is being sold in Turkey and what we will get here.

The Climate Control unit is not like what is available in Turkey, which is a dual zone system. The above picture shows FIAT have stuck with the single zone one available now on the Linea/Punto.

Also, the gear lever console also sees some change. First is instead of two small cup-holders, we seem to have one larger squarish cubby-hole. Beside this cubby-hole/cup holder we see a console which seems to have the aux-in and USB ports. Also the gear lever itself seems to have moved back a bit.

But it could also be that higher variants will get to see the dual zone climate control and a complete copy of the interiors as available in Turkey.

But what I am most happy about is that the interior plastics seem to have taken a very positive step forward.

Another important thing to notice is the black floor and black panels on the sides of the console, which is a positive step ahead from the beige floor and beige sides of the console that they have in the current models.

ohh lol
I meant area around center console and door pockets remains almost similar.
EDIT-From the spy pictures it looks like,that area around gear lever is a bit different,it looks like a proper bottle holder or something.

Another change in the gear lever console. There seems to be a proper surround around the hand brake now, which also holds up the front central armrest. The pics from the Turkish site show an arrangement which is similar to the present Linea where the hand lever seems to under the arm-rest.

Overall good to see FIAT have put some thought into the interiors, with lots of subtle changes.

Is the central beige part fabric and not plastic???

You mean the flap type not the pull type.
But is that a deal breaker?

The addition of the air volume control flow on the AC vents was something which was missed , although its pretty easy to get after market covers for that.

I don't see any major difference on the door trip - other than it being beige rather than black currently.



The dash ofcourse is the major change , the speedo area appears to look more sharper and "techy" than it is now.

On the exteriors i wonder if the existing design is perhaps still better.

Yes flap type . no definitely not a deal breaker. But when they are giving a face lift they could have included the pull type handles which definitely enhances the looks .

Fiat is in the process of appointing a new dealer in Andheri. Should be operational in next quarter. This is as per a senior Fiat official.
