Fiat India continues to tease the Avventura which is expected to launch shortly after the Punto Evo (which launches in the first week of August). After having teased the projector headlights of the car, Fiat has released this new trailer highlighting what the Avventura is about.

The Contemporary Urban Vehicle, as Fiat wants to call it, is not the one to be used for off-roading, but is more of a visually enhanced Punto with crossover-ish looks.
The Avventura will rely on the same set of engines as the Punto Evo. The engines in question are a 1.2-liter petrol, a 1.4-liter petrol and a 1.3-liter diesel available in two states of tuning. While all engines are expected to be paired to 5-speed manual transmissions, the Auto Expo display car had a 6-speed manual unit.
Compared to the Punto Evo, the Avventura gets projector headlights, plastic side body molding, skid guards, roof rails and an exposed spare wheel. Inside, Fiat has given the Avvenutura contrast stitching and roll-and-tilt gauges.
Competitors: VW Cross Polo, Toyota Etios Cross
Expected Price: INR 6 – 8 lakhs, ex-Showroom
