Fiat Linea hints at Stilo replacement

Fiat has unveiled an all-new sedan, the Linea, which also hints at what the Italian carmaker's Stilo replacement will look like.

The new Linea's nose design shows what the front of the Stilo's successor, the Bravo, will look like. Fiat will launch the Bravo at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show.

Fiat has also fast-tracked the introduction of the Bravo due to slow sales of the Stilo.

In terms of dimensions, the Line is about the size of the VW Jetta. From tip to tail the Linea is 4.56m long, 1.73m wide and has a big 500-litre boot.

Fiat hasn't given any engine details of the Linea yet.

There's also no indication yet from Fiat South Africa whether the Linea will make its way to our shores, however, if Fiat produces it in right-hand drive the chances are good.
