Full Review

Exterior

 Stunning look and very strong build quality, premium look, the 16’’ alloy wheels are an add on advantage and of course the 185 ground clearance. You can take this beauty to any good or worst roads without any strain.

Interior (Features, Space & Comfort)

Nicely designed interiors lot of leg space and accommodate 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 has 500 litters boot space and that is very essential too. The total length of the vehicle is 4596 (4.6) and the only vehicle in this segment has this huge. You will defiantly feel that you are in a premium car (diesel version is lil heavy).

 Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox

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 really must one. So this might be a negative. But can be manageable. But, if, FIAT should have done this, none of the same segment cars will come near to this Italian beauty.

Fuel efficiency is also pretty good I am getting 16 overall with 90% ac on. I crossed 9000kms so far.

Gear box is really smooth compare to other diesel vehicles.

When it comes to safety and security, this 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.

Ride Quality & Handling

 New 2014 Linea is very robust, smooth and handling is very nice. Cruise control is another advantage and it really very helpful for long journeys.

Final Words

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

I like my 1.3 mulitijet diesel emotion 2014 Linea very much and it is worth buying. Your hard earned money you spent is really worth.

Few observations

1.     Engine CC should be upgraded to 1.6

2.     Frond arm rest is not so convenient so fiat should rethink.

3.     Less utility space inside the cabin

 

 4.     Road visibility is bit stringent
