The new Fiat Avventura’s 1.4 litre petrol motor makes 112bhp and 20.8kgm of torque, while its 1.3 litre diesel mill generates 92bhp of power and 21.3kgm of torque.
All the crossovers compared here offer standard 5 speed transmissions, the Ford EcoSport also comes with an optional 6 speed automatic gearbox which is coupled to its 1.5 litre petrol motor.
