BA readers know the production of new 2013 Fiat Linea facelift has already commenced in Turkey, now the same has been launched in Turkey. While the Indian version of new Fiat Linea is still not confirmed. However, it is only the exteriors and some parts of the interiors that have received the facelift and the engine options remain the same.
As part of the design changes on the new Linea, it comes with a new front grille, re-profiled bumper, new fog lamp clusters and lots of chrome. At the rear, the bumper gets minor tweaks with an additional chrome strip and the number plate has now moved on to the bootlid. The side profile looks identical to the current car though. The refreshed cabin holds a lot of many new goodies which are as follows;
- New three-layered two-tone dashboard
- Silver-touch steering wheel
- A new integrated audio system and modern AC vents at the centre console
- Refreshed instrument cluster holding chrome-ringed recessed dials and circular centres
Currently in India, the Italian car manufacturer offers only two cars – Fiat Linea sedan and another is hatchback car – Fiat Punto. Also there are rumors which suggest the company is contemplating the launch of a third model in their portfolio, something more radical like a mini-MPV which is known to be developing silently.
At present both these models could not manage to bring into reform in the respective segment and Fiat cars are struggling to have customers. The only positive for Fiat is its Multijet diesel engine that currently powers eight different models of different brands in Indian car market. (See more pictures and video below the jump)
