    :confused:Hello everyone. A few days ago i saw a couple of sail Uva sedans. The car resembles linea's boot from the back when keenly observed. Looks like each curve is copied from the boot of ours . Also the tail lamp from the side profile, looks almost similar to our Linea. Well , our cars look way better than anyone else's product . Fiat is known for perfection in design:cool:. It's just my doubt if it has been copied . What you guys feel ???

    Even i felt it copied alot of our linea's looks the mirror style, tail lights,boot emblem and number plate positioning, they say that it has a similar 1.3 diesel engine which chevy codeveloped with fiat. In short It looks(rather is) like the cheap replica of a linea :D

    That's the trademark look of the cadillac brand of cars..
    Nothing new in that.
    And only 1 brand can copy fiat, its FIAT!
  5. Chassis of Punto/Linea it self was derived from Opel Corsa 2005,I see a Chevy SRV near my place it's chassis matches with Punto except for head and tail lights.
    GM owned Opel during that time,Our beloved Punto's have German DNA chassis and Italian DNA in Engine.

    Every manufacturer has copied/used something or the other from somewhere or the other, so its easy to find resemblance of one product with another, significantly more when platforms are shared.

    These are Standard designs which are framed from a template used by these car manufacturers so either of the corners or shapes may look similar. but its not clear who has copied from whom, new models are all from good old proven standard styles which car manufacturers think will make good impact on their sales figures :)
