Spied – Production Fiat Avventura 90 HP snapped undisguised, misses the dual exhausts
Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Early October launch for Punto-based crossover.
Seen here are images of the production-ready Fiat Avventura. Specifically, the car seen here wears the ’90 HP’ badge, indicating that it is powered by the 1.3-liter four-cylinder MultiJet engine producing 93 PS (91.69 bhp) and 209 Nm of torque.
Also seen here is the exposed spare wheel, which is one of the key differentiating design elements that sets apart the Avventura from the Punto Evo – it’s donor car. However, where the pre-production Avventura at the Auto Expo came with a dual exhaust system, the production model will get only a single exhaust as seen here.
Other exterior highlights of the Avventura would include projector headlights, different alloy wheels with a diamond-cut finish, roof rails, skid guards and plastic body cladding. Interior changes compared to the Punto Evo come in the form of roll-and-tilt gauges and contrast stitching.
The Avventura will launch sometime in early October, though pre-launch bookings for the car will commence within weeks. Fiat will also build up some enthusiasm around the car by showcasing it at various shopping malls.
Competitors: VW Cross Polo, Toyota Etios Cross
