Expected launch: Mid 2013, Price: Rs. 6.5 - 9 lakh

 

The 2013 Fiat Linea mid-size sedan is due a facelift for 2013. It was introduced in Turkey earlier in 2012. The revamped car’s exterior styling updates include a new front bumper with revised fog lamp housings and a new grille. At the back, is a new bumper with a big strip of chrome. The number plate housing is relocated from the bumper to the boot lid, with a chrome strip on top.

 

The interiors have been given a new lease of life with Fiat 500 inspired dashboard with a curvy contrasting colour section (in this case beige) across the centre. The instrument binnacle is reshaped while retaining the circular dials that now have a black background. The old air-conditioning vents have been replaced with more modern ones, there is a new integrated stereo and new air-con controls. The steering wheel has been given silver inserts.

 

The face-lifted Fiat Linea has a more modern and appealing interior while exterior styling changes are modest at best.
