Fiat Linea has started early with the Christmas celebrations which is just a few days away with a bumper discounts up to 1.75 lakhs. The Fiat Grande Punto also follows suit with a massive cut of 1.4 lakhs on its price. The move is looked upon to make way for the new 2012 Linea and the Grande Punto which is all set to debut on the 3rd January, 2012. So, to clear off the stock, Fiat is offering benefits of up to 1.75 lakh on the Linea and 1.4lakh on the Fiat Grande Punto.
The Fiat Linea is great performance car and our test drives prove that despite it having done over 50,000km till date, the engine feels strong and at the same time continues to be fuel efficient. Bad roads aren’t really a problem for the Linea and in fact it seems like this car has one of the most sorted suspension setups for India.The offers are only for the petrol versions and not for the diesel versions. The offer also includes an exchange bonus as a part of the 1.75L and 1.4L amount as suggested.
That said, the car went through some really bad shakes and the suspension seems like it needs a little bit of tightening in terms of its mounting bolts. On the ghat sections it delighted with its handling while the 1.3 litre diesel engine made inclines seem flat enough. The luggage space has been a boon as well and so has the legroom throughout the car. The integrated Bluetooth feature is rather impressive and in today’s day and age seems like it should become a standard option in every car sold.To sum it up in a nutshell, the Fiat Linea is a spacious family car that rewards you with its space and fuel efficiency, while maintaining decent levels of performance as well.
The Fiat Linea has great looks, good space and is comfortable. The fuel efficiency is average and has an average maintenance cost after a couple of years. However, the service backup provided by Fiat is bad. If you are thinking of buying one, now is the right time. Meanwhile we will have to wait and see if the rivals like Honda City, Nissan Sunny and the Volkswagen Vento will look to crash the party.
