    Hold on Guys. Don't label this as new Linea. I have almost cracked this mystery. Gathering few more updates on this car. I will post it soon.

    Thank God that's not the new Linea.

    But on a different note, is Fiat really transforming itself as an OEM for other auto manufacturers?? If so, not a happy news for Fiat owners

    Dodge is a brand owned by Chrysler. And Fiat now owns the Chrysler :).
    My guess is that this new Dodge car might have been built on the Linea platform.
  5. You r Spot On Ramjn.... But still the head lights of the car in this pic looks like it is been lifted from the Current Linea.

    And there are possibilities for Fiat to launch the same labeled as Linea since this is engineered by Fiat (some kinda JV terms), which shudn't happen.

    O yeah...my bad!!! I almost forgot !! Thanx for reminding ....

    Your guess is spot on...check this

    So this is Fiat's american entry strategy for the Linea, apart from the 500 of course. In fact if you remove the front grille cross-hair of Dodge, there is a similarity of the bumper with that of the Punto Evo. Easy to mount a Fiat badge like in Evo and you have the new Linea for the rest of the world...

    Fiat is thinking smart at last...

    Hmm. But, I hate calling this as 2013 Linea. Lets wait till January 2012 and we will get to know the name of this Car and how it will be branded during the Detroit Auto Show.
