Alright then, the Linea gets yet another facelift and we are out having another go at the car. The newest 125S version of the Italian sedan is more than just a visual upgrade though, featuring an increase in power and witnessing an introduction of the much needed touch screen, which is the order of the day. Fun fact – it’s the most powerful and torquey petrol car in its segment, and by some margin. Here’s all you should know about it
Nope. It’s the same 1.4-litre turbo charged petrol unit that powered the now discontinued T-Jet version. It’s been tuned to deliver more power (up by 11PS), though, and now dishes out 125 PS as the name of the new variant suggests.
That power output figure is the highest in its segment, and along with a stonking 208 Nm of torque, should make the Linea 125S the biggest hoot monger in its class, at least on paper.
The Linea is tough to overlook for the performance enthusiast. It’s got character, style and performance in spades and would entertain the petrolhead generously the old-school way. It’s pretty well specced and offers great bang for the buck if going fast and getting thrilled top your priority list. We can vouch for the build quality and the mechanicals too.
On the downside, the fuel efficiency isn’t the best out there. Moreover, Fiat’s operations in India are under a bit of a shadow. The cars are not moving off the shelves, service isn’t the best and resale value of the brand’s products as a result is plummeting. And that’s a shame, for the Italian carmaker is dishing out some really good products their respective segments.
