A Perfect Family car ..... If u love ur dear ones

for 1.3 Multijet Emotion

 Exterior It is a true Italian three box sedan. I was looking for one for quite some time and decided to go for Linea against Verna Fluidic. Though Fluidic is better performance and zippy.Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Exceptiona; in its segment and awesome. It is here where it beats all other competitors.  Grips on the steering at 10 and 2 are very nice as the correct driver always grips the steering at this position. I don't know abt the others.  However, migrating from Maruti and TATA cars had problems initially to operate the indicators and wiper (they are oppositly placed as from the Indian makes). Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox I have completed about 7500 km and driven in the peak traffic of Delhi and also on the Highways. Speeds varied from a meagre 15 kmph in the traffic with number of halts and red lights to 175 kmph on the highways with AC on all the timeClimate control set to 20 degrees. . My beauty has returned a mileage of 17.8 km in city and 21.5 ion highways. The Instant consumption feature does make you drive optimally. Ride Quality & Handling      Excellent ride quality however the low ground clearance is a bit of problem with MCD and MES making speed breakers as good as CAR- Breakers. It becomes difficult  with fully loaded (05 adults) you have to be careful while negotiating these breakers. The car is very stable at high speeds and does not even give a chance of being unsecured or uncomfortable. Negotiating curves at high speed was exceptional as comapred to esteem or IKON which i have driven earlier. Try to replace the 195/65/15 tyres to 205/65/15 or 205/60/15 tyres.  This will increas ethe ground clearance by 13 - 16 mm  obviating the CONS.. One of my frnds on the net has done it and found very useful.... apart from go=round clearance the ride quality and hanlding has also made a positive change. Final Words          have been reviewing cars and test driving them for last 20 months. though initial plan was to buy when I was suppose to move out of delhi but then decided against it. Shortlisted Linea, Verna, Manza ELAN, City, SX4 diesel. Finally ruled out City  coz of fuel expenditure and interiors. Verna diesel for its high speed handling and cost (Rs 1.5 Lc costlier as compared between the top two variants), SX4 bcoz every Govt office is buying the same and preferred Linea looks over SX4. Finally was left with MANZA ELAN and Linea Emotion PK Diesel. Me and my wife did like ELAN and the cost suited us but the Kids didn't like ELAN and were floored by th eLINEA and hence LINEA. Had to dish out that addtitional Rs 1 LC but is worth spending. I am not the one who keeps changing vehicles. We treat it as our family memeber so a car should be one which u r going to keep life long.MY ADVICE TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR A DECENT FAMILY SEDAN. GO FOR LINEA IF U LUV UR DEAR ONES. Areas of improvement Few suggestions, Replace the 15 wheels with a 16 to improve the ground clearance. More colors, Placement of power window switches, Integrated Parking sensors with reverse camera. For the performance , I am satisfied as this car does not seem lagging.. but if you are looking for a SPORTY and ZIPPY car then this is not for you. This is a car for the PERSON WHO LOVES HIS FAMILY and NEAR and DEAR ONES and drives like a GENTLEMEN. GO For It.

Hi Johnson.... Did not consider Nissan for two reasons....Diesel not launched when i purchased and secondly there are not many outlets for its servicing... I have a trnsferable job... and yes Nissan is not as sturdy as FIAT...

        It is a very good machine but, FIAT has to improve its service and there is no comparison with other products.
