Pros : All

Cons : Engine underpowered


Look and Style: Stunning and premium look and very strong build quality, the 16-inches alloy wheels are add on advantage and of course the 185 mm ground clearance. You can take this beauty to any good or worst roads without any strain. Nicely designed interiors, lot of leg space and accommodates 5 adults easily even for a long drives (but, lil congested rear seats for tall people). Lot of features enriched in this new 2014 Linea emotion pack version. This is the only vehicle in the segment that has 500 litres boot space and that is very essential too. The total length of the vehicle is 4596 (4.6) and it is the only vehicle in this segment with this massive length. You will definitely feel that you are in a premium car (diesel version is lil heavy).

Comfort: Gear box is really smooth when compared to other diesel vehicles. New 2014 Linea is very robust, smooth and handling is very nice. Cruise control is another advantage and it is  very helpful for long journeys.

Pickup: Engine performance is good. However, it lags a bit below 1500 rpm hence for city drive we might feel lil gloomy (once you are used-to it there will be no issues). But for highway drive, definitely this is the king and there is no doubt about that. For this weight and size at least 1.6 liter diesel engine is a must. So this might be a negative, but can be manageable. If FIAT should have done this, none of the same segment cars will come near to this Italian beauty.

Mileage: Fuel efficiency is also pretty good, I am getting 16-17 kmpl overall with 90% ac on. I crossed 9000kms so far.

Best Features: It has ABS, EBD, adjustable steering, auto rain sensing wipers, auto head lamps, follow me head lights, Dual Airbags, Early crash sensors, fire prevention system, very good breaking system, etc. This beauty has inbuilt engine immobilizer with rolling code.

Needs to improve: 1. Engine CC should be upgraded to 1.6

2. Front arm rest is not so convenient so Fiat needs to rethink.

3. Less utility space inside the cabin

4. Road visibility is bit stringent.

5. Projector Headlights

Overall Experience: This is a very good vehicle for family especially those who prefer long highway journey, also good for city drives.
