The top-end Linea Emotion will feature 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, ABS, EBD and cruise control.

Fiat wishes to compare this variant of the Linea with the Hyundai Verna SX, Honda City V and the VW Vento Highline. In the features department, Fiat will spec the sedan with cruise control, radio with voice activated commands, automatic headlights, rear AC vents, rear armrest with integrated glovebox, automatic wipers, wing mirrors with integrated turn signals, leather upholstery, collapsible rear curtain, 16-inch alloy wheels, ABS, EBD and ambient lighting.

Coming to the powertrain, the Linea facelift will most likely continue with the existing petrol and diesel engines. The 1.6-liter MultiJet engine will not be seen on the refreshed car, sources inform us. The diesel variant of the Linea will be powered by the existing 1.3-liter engine outputting close to 90 PS.

The refreshed petrol Linea will see power coming from either the 1.4-liter naturally-aspirated engine, or the 1.4-liter T-JET turbocharged motor.

Apart from the refreshed Linea, Fiat has lined up the launch of the Punto-based Avventura for the second half of this year. In between the market introductions of the 2014 Linea and Avventura, the Abarth 500 is likely to launch.

    Linea is the best car in its segment.
    Why people feel lack of power is because of its sound proof cabin. Human mind thinks the vehicle moves faster if noise is more. The vehicle is so much in control, the power delivery goes un-noticed.

    I am loving driving it.

    FIAT India has mastered the technique of self destruction. Their plant will turn in to a scrap yard, if they do not take the feedbacks of customers seriously.

    Most of the features listed here were already available in the 2012 Linea. The only new addition is Cruise Control which in the absense of an automatic transmission would be hardly useful. The driveability in the earlier Linea is pretty bad (I own one), hope Fiat has addressed that at least if they are not going to bring 1.6 MJD (which it soooooooo desperately needs!!)

    This time also same mistake from the fiat..they already well know that 1.3 engine with old school gear box in linea will not work good , after learning the lesson also fiat doing same mistake…i promise this time also linea will not bring them the good number in sales…its open bet …
