I was thinking to start this thread from sometime now. We’ve a lot of midsize sedans in market today under budget of Rs.6+ Lakhs. However if personally speaking, I’m simply in love with Fiat’s Linea not just because of its looks but also by the features and services offered by Fiat India at damn attractive deal. Let's share our honest views on all these models.

I ain't too power hungry, though this doesn't means I would prefer an under-powered sedan. I think there are a little more options to come by next year Like Etios, whose looks currently doesn't appeals to me much and the Volkswagen Vento about which there are no confirmation of pricing.

The Fiat Linea looks wonderful no doubt, but it still doesn't cut the mustard. I'd rather have a pumped-up Ford Fiesta 1.6S in Aquarius Blue with aftermarket Michelins and some engine mods too! That would be a real joy to own. I'd rate the Fiesta over the rest, but after that, i'd choose the Linea anyday. The SX4 and Aveo are just mute spectators.

i have exact same thoughts as amaan!
Linea is for looks only but for real ownership, i would love a tuned Ford Fiesta S with 17-18 inch rims with full body kit and awesome ICE! But Linea still has a place in my heart that no car can manage to reach.

Glad to see Linea topping the poll. Fiesta is simply great option for enthusiastic drivers under a packed budget and Yes, It goes well with modifications too but about Linea, It is best when remain untouched, except little accessories like tints etc. but over-all a perfect family car. I’ve checked the Aveo as well and all I can say that it currently beats any other car when it comes to interiors, However it is just the un-exciting looks and less popularity which drags me away.

I will pick the new SX4 with Leather option from the above list. I love Linea for sure and my heart is just pushing towards it. But considering the long run, VFM and over all maintenance, I will listen to the my brain [;)]

Another Vote for Linea!! The most gorgeous car available in segment yet. SX4 is also good for Indian conditions but only for MEN.
