Spied – Fiat Avventura production version without an iota of camouflage
Posted on: May 20, 2014 - 4:53pm IST
A photograph of the production Fiat Avventura without any camouflage has been published on Auto Column. The exclusive photograph confirms what we’ve known all this time – the production model is very similar to the concept showcased at the Auto Expo.
In the transition to a showroom model, the Avventura has lost its LED foglamps/daytime running lights and in place come normal bulbs. The headlamps have projector lights, and the detailing differs slightly. A radio antenna is also visible on the roof of the production model.
Otherwise the Avventura is a gear-heavy Punto featuring extra body paneling, aggressive dual tone bumpers, roof rails, external spare wheel and bigger tires.
Interestingly the Avventura shown at the Expo had a new 6-speed manual transmission, which hints that either a higher capacity engine is being primed, or Fiat is aiming for a higher fuel efficiency from the same engines. Some media reports suggest that the Avventura will not differ in mechanical configuration to that of the normal Punto. The 1.2L petrol, 1.4L petrol and the 1.3-liter diesel engines will soldier on, paired to a five-speed manual gearbox.
The Avventura’s price positioning will be between the Punto and Linea. The launch will take place within six months.
