Unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014, the Fiat Avventura is a compact crossover model based on the Punto platform. Outfitted with a rough road kit and a robust body style, this car is a boon for adventurers. The Italian automaker makes its debut into the hatchback compact crossover market with this rough and tough car. Expected to hit the Indian roads in November 2014, this sub-4-meter car would contend with the likes of Volkswagen Polo Cross, Maruti SX4 S Cross, Toyota Etios and more.
Design, Built & Exteriors:
Though the platform of the Fiat Avventurais the same as the Fiat Punto, but the Fiat Avventura Exteriors make it differ, giving it a unique sturdy look. An all-new bumper, sufficient cladding, sleek headlights with projectors, a chic orange-colored body, glossy black-colored radiator grille, smart 15-inch dual colored alloy wheels, gunmetal festooned door handles, and a spare wheel at the back – all combined, give this car a sophisticated & appealing look.
Interiors & Features:
The Fiat Avventura Interiors with an all black color scheme adorned with orange inserts complement its exteriors, giving the car a captivating appearance.
With its elaborate three-spoke steering wheel, the other Fiat Avventura features include AC unit, music system, superior navigation system, advanced instrumental cluster, touch screen display, McPherson Strut front axle, Torsion Beam rear axle, ventilated disc front brakes, solid drum rear brakes and more.
The expected safety features of this impressive car include air bags, ABS with EBD, central locking system, seat belts, seat belt reminder, side impact protection, engine immobilizer system, dual horn door, ajar warning, and more.
Engine & Performance:
We expect this crossover to come with two petrol and one diesel engine options. Apart from the 1.4-litre petrol engine, also used in the Fiat Punto, which delivers a mileage of about 14.6 Kmpl, the Fiat Avventura may also get a 1.2-litre petrol mill capable of producing 15.2 Kmpl of mileage. The 1.3-litre 4-cylinder diesel version expected to yield 90Bhp of maximum power and 209Nm of peak torque, would give an average of 20.3Kmpl.
Fiat Avventura Price range is 6 to 8 lakhs which is decent for a car of this category.
With its aggressive looks and alluring price, this compact crossover model from the house of Fiat seems promising. However, with limited clarity on its features, we would have to wait for its launch and reviews from its users to get a true picture of its performance.
