Fiat Linea vs Fiat Aegea – Old vs New

Posted on: May 25, 2015 - 7:04pm IST

Features an all new design and engine lineup.

Fiat has finally unveiled what is believed as the long-term successor of the Fiat Linea sedan – bearing a new name, better design, having new technology and an updated engine lineup. Called the Fiat Aegea, it will be first launched in November in Turkey, followed by over 40 other markets in the EMEA region.

Given below is a comparison between the 2014 Fiat Linea and the 2016 Fiat Aegea, covering key aspects of both vehicles.

Fiat Aegea Exterior

Design wise, the Aegea represents a big departure from the current Linea. While the design of the Linea was never criticized to begin with, the Aegea looks more modern and dynamic. The front end is characterized by a long patterned grille flanked by a new set of headlamps. Unlike the simple hood of the Linea, the new model features a shapely hood, an upright front end, and larger fog lamps.

At the side, the Aegea has a strong shoulder line running across as well as a new C-pillar design. The roofline also flows towards the rear, unlike the Linea. Speaking of the rear, the taillamps are sleeker and smaller than the outgoing Linea, and a long chrome strip connects the two.

Fiat Aegea Interior

Similar to the exterior, the interior is also remarkably upscale-looking to the Linea. The dashboard is updated with new controls, sports lesser buttons and a new instrument cluster. The dull steering wheel of the Linea makes way for a sportier multifunction unit for the Aegea.

Tech equipment include a Uconnect infotainment system with a 5-inch color touchscreen display supporting TomTom satellite navigation (optional), handsfree Bluetooth, audio streaming, SMS reader, voice recognition, and connectivity for USB, AUX and iPod.

Fiat Aegea Engine

Fiat haven’t release technical details on the Aegea yet, but have confirmed that the engine lineup will include two petrol four-cylinder engines and two turbodiesel MultiJet II units, with outputs ranging from 95 to 120 horsepower. They come with either a manual gearbox or an optional automatic, sending engine power to the front wheels. Fiat claims that the most economical variant will have a fuel efficiency of 25 km/l.

The Linea sold in India packs a 1.4-liter T-Jet petrol delivering 112 hp and 207 Nm peak torque, or a 1.3-liter Multijet diesel engine that outputs 93 PS at 4,000 rpm and 209 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. So far, Fiat has been offering the Linea with a 5-speed manual unit for both engines. The petrol and diesel variant returns an ARAI-certified fuel consumption of 15.7 km/l and 20.4 km/l, respectively. Fiat India introduced the Linea facelift in February 2014.

    Design of Aegea is more likely with Marea. For ex. narrow headlights, c-pillar, lines of hood, layout of dashboard, door handles, position of mirrors etc.

    The headlamps and the grill on the Aegea are somehow not to my liking. Everything else looks good. BTW Shrawan, is there any news on the weight of Aegea? The efficiency of the Fiat vehicles have been hit by huge weight of them. So want to know Fiat’s weight reduction strategies. Also Shrawan, can you check with Fiat if they are working on all new petrol engines and let us know about it? The FIRE engines are becoming dated and though their Turbo versions with Multiair technology show good performance, they are not putting good fuel efficiency numbers. Thanks in advance.
