Fiat showcased the new Linea facelift at the Auto Expo 2014.
Although there is no official confirmation yet, according to a report on OD, the new Fiat Linea facelift launch will happen by the 1st week of March.
On the frontal section, the new Fiat Linea facelift gets a new front grille, new fog lamps and a new front bumper. The Linea facelift also boasts of a revised boot-lid, which houses the rear number plate. The outside rear view mirrors feature turn indicators integrated into them.
On the interior section, the dashboard of the car makes use of a new color. The new audio system is equipped with a USB port, aux port and Bluetooth connectivity.
Other highlights of the car include:
- 16-inch alloys
- Rear parking sensor
- Cruise control
- Rain sensing wipers
- Auto headlamps
- Ambient dashboard lighting
For the safety of the passengers, the new Fiat Linea facelift is equipped with ABS, EBD and airbags.
Fiat will continue to use the 1.3-liter Multijet diesel motor which produces 93PS of max power and 209 Nm of torque. The petrol motor will be the 1.4-liter T-jet. Both the engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Rumors about Fiat plonking the Linea with the bigger 1.6 liter were dismissed at the unveiling of the car at the Auto Expo 2014.
It is to be noted that Fiat India has never really managed to set sales charts on fire with the sales number with the Linea. Even after being such a good product, the car couldn’t achieve much success mainly due to the poor after sales support that was being offered by the Tata-Fiat venture. However, after the split of the Tata-Fiat JV, we can expect the new Fiat Linea facelift to enjoy better sales figures than its predecessor.
