As we have reported earlier, the upcoming Fiat Linea facelift will feature a new front fascia and a refreshed boot. The rear number plate has been moved up from the bumper to the boot lid. With the new front bumper, the car gets a new front grille. Also, the car gets revised taillights and new lip spoiler.

The Fiat Linea facelift is already on sale in European car markets and the new Linea will be launched in India anytime next year. (Click here to read about all 40 odd cars that are headed to us next year)

It is being said that the Linea facelift will get a 1.6 litres Multijet diesel engine. Other engine on offer will include the 1.4 liter turbocharged petrol mill that powers the Linea T-JET, the performance variant of the Linea sedan.

The Fiat Linea failed to ring the cash registers for the Italian auto giant in India. Now, Fiat India having done away with Tata-Fiat partnership and  also establishing new service centers and dealerships independently, we hope the new Fiat Linea performs better than the outgoing model. Speaking about the pre-facelift model, the same would continue selling in India with the recently launched Classic variants.

  • Surly Indians get tired of the German blades cutting their wallets and will opt for Italian panache (Alfa Romeo & Maserati) and American Ruggedness aka JEEP.

    bro they have opened 100 exclusive dealerships. The brand had engaged with the target audience and incumbent and prospective customers by communicating the journey of brand FIAT in India and highlighting the latest developments namely rapidly expanding independent dealership network, 24*7 road side assistance, a new service warranty package, 3 years warranty on spare parts and national & winter service camps.

    Totally agree about their design. But they need to take India seriously just like they take other emerging European markets like Turkey.

  • arun says:

    One cannot complain about the design ,Fiat cars are ageless ,proof of that is the Grande punto sold here is a 2005 design,still it gives run for money to all those anorexic shock based fluidic designs ,look at the other manufacturers ,I have owned a maruti and was disgrunteled by the service ,its only Fiat customers know a lot about cars and point out things which a maruti or a hyundai customer age shortcharged by their respective service centres

  • Surly Fiat cannot survive with 2-3 models and with Jeep brand coming in surly its a flop move. Indians liike BMW/AUDI/BENZ… Surly design needs to improve.
