Fiat Linea Classic Expert Review
Fiat Linea Classic Expert Review Road Test
With the world of cars going all compact around you, Fiat still manages to give you more ‘car' at those prices. Fiat recently updated the Fiat Linea and added more style to an already pretty looking package. But as the car gained more finesse, it came at a bigger price tag. Luckily Fiat will also be selling the previous generation car alongside the new one with the moniker ‘Classic' attached to it. We get to spend a few days with this proper sized C-segment saloon to understand the advantage it carries with its size. read more
