Oh, Congrats Vancity!
The Indica is indeed big my friend, from all dimensions except for the length

that could be a big plus point for new indigo vista.
it means the new indigo vista will have more interior space than the linea. and maybe a bigger boot too.
the boundaries between SUV and sedans is constantly blurring.

The reason i got Vista was that i need something nimble to go arround the city and fit into small impromptu parking spots now nice thing was that i got good cabin space in the bargain and the engine got me hooked so i got Linea as the family sedan ....but for 3.5 lacs more i just love the fiat package cabin space is adequate , boot is amazing can actually pack couple of kids into it and gear box is amazing...

is it just me who thinks so?
i think it might be a visual effect due to the angle and place from where the snap is taken.
It is bigger no doubt! In fact i feel the Santro's and the sparks looks like a kid in front of it.
The Linea boot is humongous
Congrats and nice pics.

Hi harsh glad to see that you are contemplating between vista and Linea but there is no comparison fiats fit finish is much better and for 3.5 lac more you get gr8 gear box, loads of power and superb handling,breaking, etc Linea is a winner hands down imho this is the best features and is in league with cars like lexus, acura etc.

You are absolutely right. Just considering due to various reasons which have nothing to do with cars.
Btw i was born in jalandhar so nice to have first Linea there

Just thought about it... Linea is one of the most classiest looking sedans on Indian roads, D segment included and comes with an award winning diesel and rich features for 8.5 Lakhs all inclusive.... cant ask for more really.

If I was given a wish I would ask for the Verna's engine plonked into the Linea.

I wish cars were like computers. You could assemble and get whatever configuration you want !

How is the leg space at the rear? Looks a bit cramped from the pics.

Rear space is adequate for medium sized males the problem with the pics was that i had pulled both the seats all the way back move them couple of notches then no problems at all...hope this helps
