Fiat India has commenced the bookings procedure for the upcoming Avventura crossover. The car is expected to be launched next month and will fight against the Volkswagen Cross Polo and Toyota Etios Cross.
The Avventura will be offered in two engine options; a 1.4L, 4-cylinder petrol motor producing 89 BHP and 115 Nm and a 1.3L, 4-cylinder diesel motor producing 92 BHP and 209 Nm. Both the engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
As we all know, and it is visible, the Avventura is based on the Punto hatchback and was first revealed at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. On the exteriors, the Avventura is beefed up with a muscular body kit with black cladding all-round, higher ground clearance, revised front and rear bumpers, prominent front grille, roof rails, projector headlamps, tail gate mounted spare wheel and diamond cut alloy wheels.
On the inside, it is a familiar territory if you have been inside a Punto Evo or the facelift Linea. Only addition includes a console on top of the dashboard at the centre which displays data such as compass, inclinometer and roll-and-tilt meter.
The car was recently placed on display at malls in select cities for better customer access.
