Fiat India starts teasing Avventura Crossover
Fiat India has started teasing the Avventura on it official website with the tagline “Spice up your urban life with a dash of adventure”. The Fiat Avventura was last showcased at the 2014 Indian Auto expo which was held in Greater Noida. The Avventura is based on the Punto hatchback and is slated to compete against the likes of Toyota Etios cross and the Volkswagen Cross Polo.
As per a CarDekho report the crossover will remain true to its concept which was displayed at the Auto Expo. Spy shots from the internet reveal that the production version will come with body cladding, roof rails, tail mounted spare wheel, protective skid plates, 17 Inch alloy wheels, swept back headlamps and a revised front grille. The Avventura is expected to be launched with petrol and diesel engine options – 1.4 litre gasoline motor that pumps out 90PS/115 Nm and the tried and tested 1.3 litre multijet diesel engine that produces 92 PS/ 209Nm. Both the engines would be mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. We will have to wait and see if the Avventura helps Fiat bring in more customers to the dealerships as the 2014 Linea failed to do so. Fiat will also be launching the 2014 Punto hatchback during this year. The Avventura is expected to be launched in August 2014.
