    Linea 1.3
    Linea is based on the Punto platform and it would inherently share safety structure such as crumple zones with Punto. So I would expect it to be as safe as the Punto if not better.

    I really doubt whether linea (in the current form) is in sales in any other part of the world expect in India. Also when I checked for the NCAP test results I was able to see only for the Grande Punto and not for Linea. Also when I checked the Fiat.com I was not able to see Linea or any other Sedan expect for hatchbacks, cross overs and SUVs.

    I believe Linea is on sale in Brazil and Turkey. And in they have already launched the face lifted linea in Turkey.

    Great info Kailas, people should know what they are buying in terms of safety. Until now the government did not bother about doing this for Indian cars, so we people were being taken for a ride.

    Fiat Punto/Linea are build like a tank.

    Ofcourse...This must spread across our FB pages. People who care only about resale value & brand image must know all these info.

    Yes it is..But the front & side ratings has been given separately. And the frontal & side impact has also been given with pictures. It shows that the front impact is good & adequate. And btw this isn't a direct comparison. I got the Punto's results from NCAP's website.
