Fiat Linea Classic Style
The design of the Classic is very familiar as it happens to be the previous Linea. True to its Italian roots, the styling is bang on with the correct bits of everything everywhere. The front is graced by that detailed chrome grille, and that marks the end of chrome. The chrome strips on the sides and door handles, fog lamps and alloy wheels are gone. Yes we agree that those touches made the car look great from good, but no matter, the basic design is attractive enough to worry others in the segment. The body is so proportionate that this design will never get old. And the steel used for the body panels is thick and sturdy to last ages. And then it all ends at the smooth and serene rear.
Fiat Linea Classic Space
The inside of the Linea Classic is true to the name it carries. The styling is sober with a nice solid touch to all the switches and toggles. Cost cutting implies you do not get much in terms of kit here. You get a CD changer with four speakers, but no AUX/BlueTooth/USB. There are power windows on all four sides, but the driver can control only the front two from his end. Two glove boxes add a lot of convenience. The air conditioner is quiet effective and it really chills the cabin. The thing that we love most is the solid sturdy feel of the cabin. Everything is put together well and will last through ages. The seats are supportive but lack comfort. We believe long drives in these seats could get tiring. The steering is perfectly sized and weighed. However, a leather wrap would have been a welcome touch.
The Linea Classic is actually well equipped when you consider the list price of the car. Linea Classic’s longest wheelbase in the segment implies that there is ample space in the entire cabin. The only issue is headroom at the rear for taller passengers, which is not adequate. The boot space is very considerate with 500 litre capacity.
Fiat Linea Classic Engine
The variant that we are driving has a 1.3 litre Multijet diesel engine that produces 75bhp of maximum power and a healthy 197Nm of peak torque at a low 1750rpm. The petrol variant on offer has a 1.4 litre Fire unit that pumps out 89bhp of power and 115Nm of peak torque. Both these engines are mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. The diesel variant is the pick here. It has a bagful of torque and combined with that quick shifting transmission, is a treat to drive. There is a slight lag before the turbo spools up, but then it has a lot of grunt to put many others in the segment to shame. Acceleration numbers are not scorching, but adequate to make the car exciting. We noted a good 160kmph on the highway, with still more in reserve.
The Fiat Linea Linea Classic specifications feature the ever reliable 1248cc, 4-cylinder engine delivering power of 76PS at 4000rpmand Torque of 197Nm at 1750rpm.The petrol version feature 1368 4-Cylinder engine delivering power of 90PS at 600rpm and Torque of 115Nm at 4500rpm.

Fiat Linea Classic Driving
In real-world conditions, this has worked to an extent. In city traffic, the Fiat Linea Classic has enough grunt most of the time and it responds well when there is a need to pick up the pace. But a lack of power is apparent on more open roads. There is that slight hesitation at lower speeds that most small-capacity diesels have, but the sudden surge as the engine picks up speed is missing and it takes its time to respond too. Flat-out performance, however, is not too far off from the 89bhp Linea – the 75bhp Classic’s 18.92sec 0-100kph time is just 1.11sec slower.
What hasn’t changed are the ride characteristics of the car. The stability at speed is great with only a little vertical movement. It stays flat and inspires confidence, and it works well even on broken roads. Almost everything that our roads serve up gets absorbed by the suspension with next to no noise filtering into the cabin. And the steering is light enough to make easy work of parking the car but at the same time, is communicative enough to let you know how the car is behaving. The comfortable back seat makes this an ideal chauffeur-driven car.
