    Thanks to zenwalker.....He did influence me for taking this decision. I was inclined to Skoda rapid 1.6TDI. Finally I stopped thinking and called the Vecto Motors SA to my place for collecting the booking amount.

    I am impressed with the old linea design (especially the center console look). Below reasons made me to go for the old linea.


    • Of course the price (due to discounts)
    • I do not like the sharp edges in the car and also too much of curves. Sharp edges on the new bumper especially in the bottom.
    • The new linea dashboard (beige color) is difficult to maintain as I have a small kid who is known for spoiling it.
    • Old linea center console looks great with the clean finish.
    • Cruise control is not useful to my driving usage.

    Thanks to the sales agent Nikhil of Vecto motors for bearing me with lot of patience and clearing my queries. I am looking forward to the PDI, delivery and fun on wheels. Hopefully in the next weeks I should have keys in my hand.

    Congrats NumeroUno..!

    Considering the discounts and your dislike for the newer design, I would say you have landed yourself a smarter deal, one that justifies all your objectives in a car. You won't regret this decision and infact maybe the last few lucky ones who can snatch the Gen 1 Linea model.

    You will surely appreciate the great steering and array of features that a Linea offers, along with a sense of safety and excellent handling that will make your driving experience wonderful.

    Best of Luck and Wishes..!

    Welcome to the FIAT family and ofcourse TFI family too.
    Congratulations on the booking and i must say i am happy and glad that you went ahead and booked the italian beauty. At one point even i was a bit concerned about you leaning towards Rapid and Dzire ;)
    I am sure with a positive mindset youll never be dissapointed to the core but rather love to ride it all along :clap

    P.S: Party days r closer :devilface

    Congrats NumerUno!

    Any idea if old Lineas (90hp) are still available and what offers dealers are providing?
