Fiat Linea

The Fiat Linea is a small family car released in 2007 by the Italian automaker Fiat in Eastern Europe, Latin America and Middle East. In India, the Fiat Linea is expected to be launched by Mid 2008. It will replace the aging Marea as the largest saloon in the Fiat range. It is based on the current Fiat Grande Punto platform. The Linea was designed by Fiat Style Centre and co-developed by Fiat do Brasil and Tofaş from Turkey.

Linea's size is similar to saloon versions of other small family cars, like the Ford Focus, Renault Mégane and Opel Astra. Its wheelbase is 2,603 mm (102.5 in), i.e. 100 mm (3.9 in) longer than its sister models, and its total length is 4,560 mm (179.5 in) or 500 mm (19.7 in).

In South America, the Linea will receive a 1.9 L engine, "Torque" derived with aprox. 130 PS (128 hp/96 kW), flexible for the Brazilian market (capable of using petrol or ethanol).
