Fiat Avventura variant details leaked
Fiat showcased their crossover Avventura in the beginning of this year at the 2014 Auto Expo. It is based on the Fiat Punto and has got striking design elements that give it a rugged look and strong presence. After being showcased at the Auto Expo, Fiat has been testing this car extensively to tailor it to Indian conditions. That is why it has been spotted testing on Indian roads multiple times. With so many spy pictures and details leaked, we have got almost all the information except for the price of the car. It is being reported that the Fiat Avventura might be launched on October 5th.
The Fiat Avventura crossover will be powered by two different engines. The petrol engine here would be the 1.4 litre unit that is also found on the Punto hatchback. It generates a peak power of 89 bhp along with a peak torque of 115 Nm. This is a nice engine and would do really well in the Fiat Avventura. The other engine option here would be the popular Fiat Multijet diesel engine. It displaces 1.3 litres and in this car it will generate a peak power of 92 bhp and peak torque of 209 Nm.
This crossover from Fiat will compete against cars like Toyota Etios Cross and Volkswagen Cross Polo. The leaked brochures of the Fiat Avventura reveal more details about the variants. Earlier it was known that the petrol engine would not be available on the top end trim and would only be available on the base and mid-level variants only. Now however it has been reported that it is available on the base and top end trim. These would be the Active and Emotion variants.
While on other Fiat models, the Active variant is essentially the range starter and hasn’t got a lot of equipment, it isn’t the case here. On all the variants, the standard equipment would be 16 inch alloy wheels, central locking with foldable key, roof rails, programmable speed limiter, tilt steering (hydraulic power), double folding rear seat, front power windows, compass, clinometer and tilt meter. The car has got a boot lid mounted spare wheel which looks very nice.
On the dynamic variant, you get Anti-lock braking system and Electronic brake force distribution. You also get electrically adjustable outside rear view mirrors, fog lamps, multimedia system with support for Aux, USB and Bluetooth, height adjustable driver seat and rear power windows. On the top of the line Emotion variant of the Fiat Avventura you get three point ELR seat belt with load limiters & pre tensioners, dual airbags with passenger airbag deactivation, steering wheel wrapped in leather with audio controls mounted on it, automatic climate control with rear AC vents, rear defogger, rear wiper and rear power socket.
