Fiat Linea facelift side profileThe 2013 Fiat Linea (or the refreshed Fiat Linea) is coming to Spain very soon and it boasts some serious improvements, both inside and outside.

Firstly, this is not just a Linea with different bumpers and styling, No. The 2013 model actually adds 4cm to its overall length and the result is a Linea that measures 4.59m in length.

Now to the more apparent details of the facelift. The entire front fascia has been redesigned and that includes the bumper (which embodies the Fiat Punto EVO’s looks), grille, air dam and fog lights.

Also included are new color options and a different styling for the wheel (though it seems that Fiat India already sells the Linea with these alloys here).

The interior sports mild alterations as well. Most prominent of which is the new music system with Blue&Me support. Minor tweaks to the dashboard and the stitching of the seats is also being reported on the refreshed variant. But does the 4cm increase improve the legroom? Sadly, it could just be the new bumpers taking up space.

Under the hood, the refreshed Linea will feature the MultiJet II diesel engine. What this is, is the same 1.3-liter engine (which runs 50% of India!) with some minor tuning. As a result, the power output has gone up to 95bhp. A Start-Stop system ensures that the Linea delivers 4.9l/100km (20.4km/l).

Fiat is also offering a Comfort trim on the car which ensures features such as rain and light sensors and rear parking camera with sensors.

The Spanish dealers have reportedly started accepting bookings for the car. The refreshed Linea starts at 11,900 euros (INR 8.59 lakhs).

Fiat India has announced that the Linea would be repositioned as the Linea Classic this year, to make way for an all new Linea next year.

Now, when we spoke to Mr. Enrico Atanasio, MD Fiat India, at the launch of a new dealership in Chennai last month, he said that the Linea Classic would boast significant changes. Are these the changes he was talking about? Or would we get some India specific changes for the Linea Classic? It is only a matter of time before we find out.
