The brand new Fiat Aegea is a really nice compact sedan which will act as a replacement for the aging Linea once it will go on sale before the end of this year. So far we know that it will be assembled in Turkey and exported all over the world, but a new report states Fiat has plans to produce the car in India and Brazil as well.
Although Fiat India has announced the Aegea is not on the agenda for our country in the foreseeable future, that will likely change if this new report will turn out to be valid. Chances are it will indeed be sold in India and is going to replace the Linea sometime in the near future, but we will have to wait for an official confirmation.
We remind you the Fiat Aegea is 4.5 meters long, 1.78 meters wide and 1.48 meters tall, so it should be a spacious model in its segment especially since it has a generous 2.64-meter wheelbase and a large trunk with a 510-liter capacity.
In terms of engines, Fiat has announced the Linea successor will be available with two gasoline and two MultiJet II units that will have an output ranging from 95 bhp to 120 bhp. These will work with manual and automatic transmissions and according to the Italian marque the most economical version of the range will be able to do more than 25 kmpl.
The appealing exterior design will be matched on the inside by an attractive cabin which on the upper-spec versions will have a 5-inch touchscreen color display part of the latest generation Uconnect infotainment system that has support for TomTom satellite navigation, voice recognition, handsfree Bluetooth, rearview camera and AUX, USB and iPod connectivity.
Production of the Fiat Aegea at the Bursa factory in Turkey will begin in November for more than 40 countries.
