With regular hatchback & crossover models not doing good enough in the Indian market, Fiat will soon be injecting more power in their product lineup.
The Abarth brand has already entered the Indian market with the 595 Competizione. Now, in the coming weeks, Fiat will introduce the Abarth Punto in India which will be the cheapest hot hatch one can own.
Post this, even the Abarth Avventura will hit the Indian showrooms. Fiat will pitch this model as a ‘Hot Cross’ & will be available in red or white paint schemes.
Powering the Abarth Avventura will be a 1.4L, T-Jet petrol motor producing 140 BHP of power and 210 Nm of torque which will help the crossover achieve 0-100 kmph in 9.9 seconds. It can also travel 0-1000m in 31.8 seconds. These Abarth models will also feature all-four disc brakes.
Visually, the Abarth Avventura will get Abarth branding on the side profile of the car, Scorpion sting alloy wheels, new interior upholstery, etc.
In the crossover segment, the Avventura will be the most powerful compared to the Volkswagen Cross Polo, Toyota Etios Cross & Hyundai i20 Active.
