As these images reveal, the Linea facelift will get a completely re-done rear fascia which will see the placement of the registration plate enclosure on the bootlid (currently it is on the bumper).

As a result, the bootlid will be redesigned while the bumper gets a thick chrome strip to mask the absence of the registration plate enclosure.

The Linea facelift was launched in Europe last year and isn't expected in India until the 2014 Auto Expo.

The front of the refreshed Linea sees an all-new bumper with chrome highlights and the new grille gets two horizontal slats, which looks simpler than the current design. A new alloy wheel design completes the exterior round of changes.
