Fiat Linea Classic An Affordable Sedan
Well, if at all you ask for which is one of the affordable sedan in the Indian market, the answer would be Fiat Linea Classic. This sedan is an entry level of its Linea series and it delivers high performance and offers a decent mileage as well. This compact sedan has got a good overall shape and body line, impressive interiors and excellent driving quality, when compared to other vehicles in this segment. The exterior design of this car looks more aggressive than the regular Linea model. Occupying yourself inside the Fiat Linea Classic sedan, you will certainly feel very comfortable and the company has used good quality material to make the interiors, which will further enhance the overall appearance. It also got a roomy wheelbase, which makes the sedan more spacious from the insides. This sedan brings a high quality internal environment to the customers. The most highlighted factor is the cut down price, which is about Rs 7.6 lakhs (ex-showroom). The model that I took out for a test drive was the top end classic plus variant that is equipped with advanced safety and comfort features. It has been fitted with a 1.3-liter Multijet diesel engine that makes about 75bhp of power and 197Nm of torque. This engine has a five-speed manual transmission, which is smooth and offers about 19.5 kmpl of mileage, when driven under standard conditions. As far as the driving quality and handling is concerned, it is perfectly balanced with a good suspension system, a proficient braking mechanism and very smooth in pick-up and acceleration. It is equipped with innovative features such as ABS with EBD, a central locking system, rear defogger and seat belt warning lamp. Finally, I feel that this car is slightly more affordable option for the mid-sized sedan buyers. The Fiat Linea Classic has amazing looks and a good performance, but it lacks several safety and comfort features.
