Italian automobile manufacturer Fiat is currently revamping its entire India portfolio. They have already given its Linea sedan and hatchback Punto Evo much needed facelifts. Fiat had confirmed it will launch one more product and a new brand in India.
Fiat had displayed its power packed Abarth brand and have confirmed the Abarth 500 for launch in India. The Italian based manufacturer had also showcased a compact SUV dubbed as the Avventura. We however consider the Avventura a crossover.
Promotion of a new product has become a sort of necessity in today's time. Fiat has began promoting its Avventura in several cities across India. They have chosen certain malls across India and will be displaying its new offering in most cities prior to its launch.
The Avventura retains majority of its styling and design from the concept model showcased in Delhi during the 2014 Auto Expo. The Punto Evo has also borrowed several key features and design elements from the concept vehicle.
Fiat's crossover is expected to sport both petrol as well as diesel engine options. They will offer two petrol engines and one diesel mill with two engine tunes:
- 1.2-litre petrol powered engine, producing 96 Nm of peak torque, along with maximum power of 67 bhp.
- 1.4-litre petrol powered engine, developing maximum power of 89 bhp and 115 Nm of peak torque.
- 1.3-litre, diesel engine generating 197 Nm of peak torque, along with 75 bhp of power.
- Fiat will also offer a more powerful 1.3-litre diesel engine, producing 209 Nm of peak torque and maximum power of 90 bhp.
We expect the Avventura to priced aggressively just as Fiat did with the Punto Evo in India. The crossover is expected to launch soon, Fiat officials had confirmed a special announcement 60 days from the Punto Evo's launch.
