The Fiat Linea facelift is expected to receive new front and rear bumpers, new head lamps and tail lamps, new front fender and possibly a new boot lid. The interior is expected to receive a slightly new design as well.

For engines, the Linea's 1.3-liter multijet engine will be mildy uptuned while Fiat's 1.4-liter MultiAir engine will be added to the range. This engine without MultiAir variable valve timing produces 155 PS (114 kW / 153 hp) and 170 PS (125 kW / 168 hp) with MultiAir as seen in the Alfa Romeo MiTo.

The 2013 Linea is due to launch by the end of this year.
