    Scoop..!! Spotted Linea "Classic" Version.

    I was on my way in Pune for an official meeting. The Car was just ahead of me, couldnt click more pics, as we stopped due to our driver received a call.

    Then, the car got lost in the traffic.

    Apologies for a blurry pic, taken from my mobile camera.

    I am still not entirely convinced that it is indeed 'Linea Classic' (I may be wrong here).

    When I looked at the pictures of Linea Classic from Turkey sites, the only difference that I could infer is, 'Linea' monogram has gone to the other side of the boot door. And there is no badge for the Classic.

    The only reason that I could think of, for testing Linea Classic on roads is that the engine may be tuned down to 75HP as mentioned by someone earlier.

    Correct. But, what is the necessity of displaying the Classic Badge?

    Not sure. May be they might have assumed that no one will notice and will pass as a regular Linea. The Classic badge is too blurry to make out in the image. I am not sure, it the badge says "Classic" at all.

    Got this information from a Fiat Official. The Linea Classic is going to be out by the 3rd week of September around the 20th. Will have two variants and will have the 75 bhp version. Its basically the stripped down version of the current Linea. Expect the base diesel to start from 6.5 Lakhs ex showroom. Hope this does not cannibalize the Punto sales.

    PS: Cant reveal who the person is or what is contact details are for obvious reasons.

    Re: Scoop: 2014 Linea caught testing in India

    May be they want to follow the 70hp Fiesta classic road. It goes no where.

    Wonder what sort of cost cutting FIAT will attempt when this 75hp Linea comes out. They will have to make it a complete "poverty pack" car so as to not entice the majority of Punto customers. Anyways, interested to see more about this.

    Cheers.

    P.S. "Poverty Pack" was the term mainly used for stripped out base models of Landcruisers. No negative connotations.
