The facelift of the Fiat Linea is beginning to grow on us as we browse through more photographs, different colors and see it in motion.

Sure it does not have the elegance of the India-spec model but we get the feeling that it looks much better in flesh, though we haven't seen one yet!

These are the images of the refreshed Linea Fiat Turkey has released on its website. As we've explained before, the center console is new and the AC vents have been redesigned. The dashboard exudes a sense of continuity. Aside from the changes to car's nose, there are very minimal changes to the car's exterior.

Under the hood, Fiat is offering three choices - 1.4 petrol with 77hp, 1.6 diesel with 105hp and the 1.3 diesel with 95hp. The 1.6 diesel is married to a six-speed transmission while the other two engines process drive using a 5-speed unit.

Fiat India's CEO Mr Rajeev Kapoor during an interaction with IndianAutosBlog.com in January this year said the company will work on the facelift without divulging a time frame. The whole of 2012 will be dedicated to the MY2012 Linea and Punto models and a facelift is not expected to show up until Fiat India has a new dealership network.
