We propose a new test for linearity of time-series model by introducing a mixed-type statistic. It consists of a Cramer-Von Mises-type statistic and a goodness-of-fit statistic concerned only with fitting a linear autoregressive model. The computation involved in the new test is considerably simple and the curse of dimensionality is partly avoided. It is shown that the test is consistent against all fixed alternatives to linearity in stationary autoregressive series. The simulation results show that the test has good performance of power.
