Fiat’s Aegea has been spotted on test in Germany by Christopher Zinn and this is the sedan that is likely to make its way into India. The Aegea will be the Italian automaker’s global replacement for the Linea. For the Indian car market, the Aegea will undergo a phenomenal amount of upgrade to suit the requirments of the Indian car buyers.
Fiat will be looking at manufacturing this new generation Linea in India and will be exporting to several other Asian markets, while Turkey will be the based to export in Europe itself. Fiat claims the Aegea to be a lot more stylish and spacious than the current Linea. The Aegea will not get bells and whistles, which Fiat considers aren’t very important. Instead the company will be focusing more on driving pleasure and other comfort features for the new sedan.
Expect the Linea replacement to make its way into India in 2017-18. The Linea is likely to be the first product to be replaced in 2017, followed by a new premium hatchback and a new compact SUV too. Next year, Fiat will be launching a new small Jeep SUV that will be officially launched first in India and then exported to other parts of the world.
