Facing tough time in convincing one of my friend to buy a Linea. It's not that I'm forcing him blindly. Every time we take a test drive, I'll compare the missing features of that car when compared to Linea. He's all convinced except for the rear leg room and initial turbo lag in the 2nd gear. While I proved him that the turbo lag effect can be minimized by shifting rightly, he's concerned about the rear leg room. After trying i-Dtec City, Vento, Verna, Rapid and Linea he's planning to opt for Skoda rapid which of course has a good initial pick up and decent rear leg room. Following are the points we've discussed which are not worthy in going for a Rapid TDI when compared to Linea MJD (suggest me more to earn another customer for Fiat ) * Poor steering feedback from Rapid's EPS when compared to Fiat's HPS * Very short 2nd gear * Not so good interiors when compared to 2014 Linea * No engine skid plate in Rapid * Benefit of Linea's boot struts than a intruding hinge * benefit of Fiat's strong panels and the doors * 205 tyres and 16" alloys when compared to 185mm tyres and 15" alloys * leather upholstery vs cheap fabric * Blue n Me * Scary skoda service Every time I keep telling him, only a Fiat owner can recommend you a Fiat for he knows it's worth.
