Fiat Avventura Urban Cross price starts at Rs. 6.85 lakh
Fiat India has launched their latest hatchback crossover – the Fiat Avventura Urban Cross. The Italian automaker has further announced that deliveries of the Avventura Urban Cross will begin on October 1, 2016. This timeline has been strategically placed in order to introduce the car in time for the country’s festive season, which usually attracts huge sales for every automaker.
Prices of the Avventura Urban Cross start at Rs. 6.85 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). It will be offered with both petrol and diesel engine options. The range-topping trim is priced at a whopping tag of Rs. 9.85 lakh. Fiat officials had earlier stated that the company aims to attract better sales from the Urban Cross, something that they didn’t manage with the Avventura.
Cosmetically, the Urban Cross reminds us of the Fiat Avventura. It features the same, increased ground clearance, black body cladding, and a toughened up front fascia. Design elements on the outside include Piano Black front grille, new front and rear dual-tone bumpers, faux silver skid plates, and two-tone diamond-cut-finish 16-inch alloys. A sporty spoiler has been integrated on the roof, and is offered as standard on all variants. Further, the smart side body cladding and roof rails accentuate the ruggedness and appeal of the Urban Cross’ personality as a crossover. In addition to all the major elements mentioned above, the top-end Emotion trim, which also gets the ‘Powered by Abarth’ adds the exclusive 16-inch ‘Scorpion’ alloys to the feature list. It also gets Abarth branding throughout the car.
On the inside, the Avventura Urban Cross gets dual tone treatment, with a combination of red and black. Standard features available on all variants include central and automatic door locking, dual tone dashboard with a soft touch front panel, rear AC vents, front power windows with ‘delay’ and ‘auto-down’ functions, a Smartech 5-inch music system with touch screen navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming and telephony.
If the above features aren’t enough to entice you for the Urban Cross, Fiat is also offering the Urban Cross with Premium Burgundy Designer Interiors. This design package will only be available during the festive season. It includes various tasteful elements like colour coordinated door inserts, Piano finish door armrests and Designer seats with badging. However, this Designer Interior package will only be available as an option in the Dynamic diesel and the Emotion petrol variants.
