Fiat is also considering a high-performance Abarth version of the Linea.
The company seems to have taken note of the positive feedback that the Abarth Punto has received, and hence the same 143bhp T-Jet turbo petrol engine could be available in the Linea. It is also likely that the other mechanical changes such as rear disc brakes, stiffened suspension and lowered ride height (20mm) will make it to the sedan, if the car gets cleared for production.
Like seen on the Abarth Punto, the Abarth Linea could get certain upgrades to design. Fiat contemplating Abarth Linea for India | Car News | Mid-size Saloons | Autocar India
