Fiat to launch Avventura next week

Fiat India will launch the Avventura next week. The car was first showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo held in Noida.

Fiat India will launch the Avventura next week. It is based on the Punto Evo hatchback. The company calls it the CUV (Contemporary Urban Vehicle) and it will compete with the Volkswagen Cross Polo and the Toyota Etios Cross. Unlike its competitors which are just variants with cosmetic changes, the Fiat Avventura gets some mechanical changes too.

The Fiat Avventura gets a raised ride height with a tweaked suspension setup. It will ride on 16-inch alloy wheels. Changes on the exterior include projector headlamps, redesigned front and rear bumpers, functional roof-rails, spare wheel on the hatch-door, body cladding, etc. The interiors will be similar to the Punto Evo but with different material options. The car also gets a digital compass and tilt-meter housed above the centre AC vents.

The Fiat Avventura will come powered by the same engines which power the Punto Evo range. There is a 1.4-litre petrol engine producing 89bhp/115Nm and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine pumping out 92bhp/209Nm. Power is transferred to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 1.2-litre petrol unit producing 67bhp/96Nm from the Punto Evo will not be offered on the Avventura.

Expect Fiat to price the Avventura at approximately Rs.7 – 7.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
