The Fiat Linea was launched way back in 2007 and has been successful in emerging markets like Turket, where the fan following for this Italian beauty is quite massive. With 5-years with almost no changes to the vehicle, FIAT engineers in Europe has commenced testing of a new model, which will go on sale later this year. The facelifted Linea is not a drastically different from the current model, which is quite shocking. FIAT should be thinking of launching the next generation Linea at this moment but instead they are resorting to minor updates to keep the Linea brand going.
The 2013 Fiat Linea now gets new front, new head lights, new front fender, new alloy wheels, new tail lights, new rear bumper and a new boot lid. The interiors will also be spurced up with slight changes, while the engines will receive more power along with the addition of the 1.4-liter MultiAir engine to the range. The 1.4-liter MultiAir motor produces 168 BHP of power, while the non-MultiAir version produces 153 BHP of power. The facelifted Linea will go on sale by the end of 2012, but don’t expect Fiat to launch this in India anytime soon.
