The beauty that is Fiat Linea
Pros : Comfort and Looks
Cons : Under performance compared to the rivals
Since its re-entry in Indian market, Fiat seems to have been struggling to make its mark in the country’s auto market. Fiat went into partnership with Tata Motors, but that deal seems to have fallen flat with the passing time. Even though, Fiat’s cars are really good, people keep from away buying it’s cars, and it has more than just a couple of reasons behind it. First and the biggest is the real low re-sale value of Fiat’s cars. People know that it would take time for Fiat to establish its position in the Indian market, and till then people are going to prefer other auto companies over Fiat.
Fiat Linea is an entry-level sedan, and it is one of the best in its class. Almost all of us know that, but there’s no denying that Fiat’s poor image is not helping this car. Recently, Fiat launched the upgraded version of Fiat Linea, and it has been launched in both, Diesel and Petrol versions. The Petrol version is available in two variants- Fiat Linea Petrol Active and Fiat Linea Petrol Dynamic, both powered by a 1368cc engine. These are priced in the range of Rs. 6.84-7.81 Lakh. Whereas, the Diesel version is available in three variants- Fiat Linea Diesel Active, Fiat Linea Diesel Dynamic and Fiat Linea Diesel Emotion, all powered by a 1248cc engine. These variants are priced in the range of Rs. 7.84-9.19 Lakh.
I have booked Fiat Linea Diesel Dynamic, and as per the dealer it will be delivered to me in the first week of March. I have done a full research on this car, and so I wanted to write this review and let everyone know how good this car is. It has all the features and all the looks to make you go crazy, and make everybody else envy you. It is a very good performer, and a very comfortable car.
