About the only good thing we can say about the current Fiat Linea is that you can ask your dealer for a big discount, since he's unlikely to be selling a lot of these un-updated sedans from 2007 in Europe or anywhere else for that matter.
But this is a general problem in the market right now, as many automakers are unwilling to invest while European car sales are at their lowest. But since Marchionne is seeing a bottom in the market, Fiat is back to using Chrysler earning to make Fiats again.

According to a report from Autonews, a new generation of the Linea sedan will arrive in 20015, eight years after the current one's debut. It will reportedly be made at an updated Bursa factory in Turkey, where the Linea is currently made.

The size of the sedan will be pretty much the same, but Fiat engineers will try try to bring costs down so they can offer a really affordable car.

The Linea brings stiff competition from Skoda's Rapid, Peugeot's 301 and a number of other recently launched affordable sedans, not forgetting of course the Dacia Logan, now in its second generation.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
