Featuring what Fiat calls the premium-most aesthetics, the Fiat Linea Classic has a list of tech specs to show off.

Being promoted as the 'Longest Car in the Price Segment', the Fiat Linea is sure to grab the attention of mid-budget car buyers, because it is like truly achieving the luxuries of a sedan at the price range of a hatchback. As we look at the Fiat Linea features, we find a hydraulic power steering, programmable speed limit buzzer, dual parabola headlamps and fire prevention systems. With a fuel tank capacity of 45 litres, the car is giving a maximum power of 88.8bhp @ 6000rpm and a maximum torque of 115Nm @ 4500rpm. For safety of the passenger, the car includes Halogen headlamps, Rear Seat Belts, Adjustable Seats and an Engine Immobilizer. For those digging into the tech specs - the dimensions of this Sedan measure up to a Width of 1730mm, Length 4560mm, Height 1487mm and a Ground clearance of 185mm. On the exterior, the significant feature to note is that the 15 inch alloy wheels have made way for 14 inch non-alloy wheels and you'll see a ‘Classic' badge on the boot lid.


Commenting on the launch, Nagesh Basavanhalli, President and Managing Director of Fiat Chrysler Operations India, was quoted as saying, "The car will be an attractive offering for the customers at a very affordable price, price and we plan to reach customers in all the cities through our 79 exclusive dealership in the near future." He has shared that even thought the auto industry has faced a significant slowdown, the entry level sedan segment witnessed 12 per cent growth in 2012 and it grew by 15 per cent this year till August. "That's why we are targeting this segment," he said. It is good to note that the company is also enhancing the network of its servicing centres and has launched schemes like Fiat AMICO and Fiat Express Service. Those looking for warranty can note that the company has extended it for the Fiat cars from three years to five years.

The car maker also revealed its plans to sell around 30,000 units despite the challenging market situation of the Indian auto market. As far as the competition of Linea Classic is concerned, it will square off against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Honda Amaze and Toyota Etios, amidst others.
