    Excellent review Krishna...! Strongly feel that Fiat has messed up the beautiful old design..Lost its sporty look. Became a more conventional 'car' now..May be they are playing it safe..

    Great review.
    Hows the ICE in new linea. Is HU/B N Me capable of A2DP bluetooth streaming and can songs be now changed from HU instead of steering when playing USB.

    An amazing review Krishna. Thanks for taking the pains to give us such a detailed review of the car. I especially loved the photo of turn indicators in action on the ORVMs

    Coming to the facelift of the car, I have mixed opinions. While the interiors of the new car come as a refreshing change, the same cannot be said to the exteriors, especially the huge slab of chrome on the rear bumper.

    PS - May I request the MODS to have this review on the home page itself. Doesn't this wonderful review deserve it ?

    Superb Review Krishna. This is really a great effort. I could see the new Linea being dispatched to the Bhaskara showroom for Launch here in Baroda today, when i went to the Workshop. I feel this time Fiat has done some good job. Esp. 1.4 is a surprise.

    Excellent Photographs and awesome review. Thanks Krishna for all your effort. Hope Fiat gets 1.6 MJD at the earliest.

    Awersome detailed review.

    Loved the side by side pics with old Linea. The old design trumps the new one in every way. That one is a head turner even today after five years.

    Is the foot well illumination from the factory itself? If yes can we get that in our existing Lineas also?

    Brilliant writeup backed by even more brilliant pictures!
    Only an existing Fiat owner could have done justice to the new car; the changes and improvements wouldn't be so apparent or appreciated by 'others'.
