Fiat Avventura Crossover launched with Aggressive pricing at Rs 5.99 Lakhs Onwards

Fiat Feels to be the top of this world in this Festive Season having every reason to smile and fly like a bird. We will tell you the reason but before that talks about the recently Launched Charm caster Fiat Avventura, a very close sibling of Punto Evo making the end of waiting for this powerful & Beautiful Crossover  

The Avventura is basically a hopped up Punto, just like Volkswagen’s Cross Polo and Toyota’s Etios Cross. Though the vehicle doesn't compete directly against the Ford EcoSport, at this price point it can attract buyers looking for the EcoSport and are fed-up of the long waiting period involved.

Design includes a tweaked front grille, new black bumper with silver cladding encompassing the fog lamps that give a skid plate like appearance. The brawny appeal is accentuated on the side profile with black body cladding on the belt line, wheel arches, door handles and roof rails. The ground clearance of 205 mm also adds to the SUV-like presence on the crossover. Avventura is marginally larger in size measuring 3989 mm in length, 1706 mm in width and 1542 mm in height; the wheelbase remains the same at 2510 mm.

The side profile continues to be the same, and has already melted tons of hearts, but the rear now offers something new in the form of a full sized, independently mounted spare wheel- which also comes with attractively sculpted cover with the Fiat logo in the middle. Those pretty, clear lens tail lamps from the Punto Evo are carried over as well.

The Avventura shares its powertrain with the Punto Evo and no changes have been made to the power figures on either of the engine options. Petrol power comes from the 1.4-litre 4-cylinder FIRE engine producing 90 PS at 6000 RPM and 115 Nm of torque at 4500 RPM. The mainstay engine however, will be the diesel that is the tried and tested 1.3-litre 4-cylinder Multijet motor with Variable Geometry Charger (VGT) producing 93 PS of power at 4000 RPM and 209 Nm of torque at 2000 RPM. Both the engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, but have been slightly modified for better performance compared to the Punto Evo. Fiat India states that the ARAI certified fuel efficiency figures for the Avventura stand at 14.4 km/l on the petrol and 20.5 km/l on the diesel version.

Step, or rather climb in and you’ll be greeted with familiar vibes from Punto Evo. The Avventura borrows the dashboard layout from the Punto but is finished in a new dual-tone shade. Stacked on top of the centre console are the three new gauges including the digital compass and inclinometers that show the incline difference of up to 40-degrees. The boot space measures at healthy 280-litres, while the overall seating arrangement remains same as Punto Evo. The vehicle also gets functional roof rails.

The Safety tech including dual front airbags, ABS, 3-point seatbelts with pre-tensioners and height adjustability feature. However, all of these features are available only on the top-end diesel variant, while the mid-level petrol gets only ABS on offer. The spare wheel cover, high quality cladding, aluminium roof-rails, compass & inclinometer, art leather seats etc are STANDARD across variants.

Recently, Fiat India fulfilled the largest order for hatchbacks in a single day comprising of 455 units of the 2014 Punto Evo that were delivered to a Surat based diamond firm, Hari Krishna Exports that make Fiat feel like the top of world. This diamond firm used the B-segment hatchback as gifts ahead of the festival of Diwali to its employees. Fait Avventura will go against VW Polo Cross & Etios Cross make this Segment much hotter to survive.
