Fiat dealerships in India are now accepting bookings for the Fiat Urban Cross for a minimum deposit of INR 21,000, ahead of its launch this month, reportedly. This is the third derivative of the Punto Evo hatchback, which has also spawned the Avventura.
Unveiled at the Auto Expo 2016, the Fiat Urban Cross can be summarized as an Avventura without the tailgate-mounted spare wheel. For further differentiation, it features a new grille, updated headlamps, revised bumper and body-painted cladding. The Urban Cross measures 4,000 mm in length, 1,700 mm in width, 1,500 mm in height and has a ground clearance of 205 mm.
Inside, it features a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation, dual tone red and black interior, and silver accents on the steering wheel.
The Urban Cross is available in both petrol and diesel variants. The former is powered by a 1.4L T-Jet petrol engine that produces 140 PS and 210 Nm, while the latter packs the familiar 1.3 Multijet diesel engine with 93 PS and 209 Nm of torque. Both variants are equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard.
