Detailed Fiat Linea Review

What's Good?

LINEA is one of the best in class I have owned till now looking to the price range in which it falls and the amenities it provides. However a lot of users are expriencing milage problem in all the versions of LINEA. There are 3 simple rules to be followed to get out the best of the fuel you put in LINEA and I am pretty sure that it will never disappoint you: 1. Get your soul serviced once in an year or in 15,000 kms. run at Company Service Station. (Note: As the car is completey electronically controlled by the CAR Operating System, do not visit any road side service stations.) 2. Drive your CAR between the RPM Range of 2300 to 2700 to get the most fuel efficiency. (Do not run above 3000 RPM Mark to avoid carbon deposition in engine.) (When on highways instead of applying sudden brakes do shift to neutral a few meters so that the fuel consumption decreases and car moves through the distance.) (When in city drive in office hours (heavy traffic hours) do not take a gear shift higher than 3, on clear roads 4.)(5th gear is meant only for highways in Linea.) (Do make sure your clutch paddle is completely released while driving.) 3. Do use normal diesel and not turbo jet or other diesel as your engine can easily digest the regular food meant for it. Your Car is no less than a Luxury Car, take care of it at every moment and it ll give you all the comfort you desire.

What can improve?

Definitely an elongated clutch depress is a something to be taken care of while driving. Company should improve on this.

Exteriors (5/5)

Absolutely elegant look with smooth finish and the front look is no less than a whale and while driving on highways it is just gives you the same feel.

Interiors (5/5)

With all the features available in its top end variant its just mesmerizing to even sit in for no reason.

Ride Quality (4/5)

Smooth, Elegant and Charged up. Don't forget, HAtchback version of this robust machine (PUNTO) has got featured in NFS Most Wanted. And in gives your the same feel when you press the throttle and let it roar.
