Pros : stunning looks, spacious interiors, price
Cons : driver’s seat, pick up, ground clearance
Fiat Linea is like a dream come true for some people and I think I am fortunate enough to possess the incredible beauty. It possesses astonishing features at such a good price that stuns people. The perfect price setting and ultimate design are remarkable from Fiat. However after a few drives mileage struck my mind and results were poor. Although Linea provides a stable drive and moreover the suspension is well suited for the Indian roads. The advanced safety features are enabled which make it quite different from rest of the cars of the segment.
Exterior features are really stylish and have stunning looks. Linea is truly an eye catching luxury sedan. The excellent features enabled are dual parabola headlamps, radiator grills, rear dual fog lamps, wider front bumper and electric rear view mirror. The car dimensions are vast and well suited. The ground clearance is also nice. The size of steel and alloy wheel is great which looks attractive. The front suspension is independent wheel, helical coil spring and the rear suspension is torsion beam, helical coil spring that helps reduce bumps to a larger extent. Linea is available in 9 different varieties of colours. Whenever the new version comes it comes with several changed designs. Looks are so impressive that the car seems as if of a higher price than its actual price.
The interiors are adopted with Italian styling which is quite cool and attractive. Interiors are designed in such a way that they are much spacious and comfortable to accommodate 5 people easily. The various amazing features enabled in the interiors are dual tone dashboard, fabric insert on door trim, leather wrap steering wheel, sunglass holder, glove boxes, electrically adjustable mirrors and enough legroom. The music system is well enabled with USB and Bluetooth connectivity for music lovers. The interiors lack few features like effective adjustment of rear windows, cup holders and headroom. Rack and pinion steering type is provided along with disc front brakes and drum rear brakes. The various safety features are enabled such as fire prevention system, ABS with EBD and dual airbags. These are some feature I like the most about the car.
Linea is available in both petrol and diesel options. I regret not buying a diesel variant though since the petrol engine is costly. Although the power is really good and the pickup is superb.
Linea is quite comfortable to drive even at higher speeds and that too at any kind of surface or terrain. The front suspension and wheels are so managed that they keep on holding the car on turns with proper grip on to the gravity. The maintenance cost is low and the mileage offered by the petrol engine is also quite low, so in order to maintain an optimization, I really think of exchanging the same car but with the diesel variant.
Linea is perfect in terms of luxury and comfort but when it comes to efficiency, I am somewhat blue but it is definitely nice rather magnificent in looks.
