Fiat Group Automobiles India has been testing the Avventura quite extensively and our friend Yatharth Chauhan has managed to capture the upcoming Contemporary Urban Vehicle (as Fiat calls it ) from the Italian car maker.
Akin to all other vehicles from the segment which are based on the platforms used by their hatchback siblings, the Avenntura to would be based on the Punto platform. Dimensionally, the car seems to be similar to the regular Punto hatchback and measures 3,987 mm in length. While the tail mounted spare wheel makes the Avventura longer than 4000 mm, it will qualify for the excise duty benefits when it goes on sale later this year. (Akin Ford EcoSport).
Last month, we brought you the spy pics where front end was completely undisguised.

The car retains the front end design from its concept avatar.
Here is the images gallery of the Avventura concept from the Auto Expo 2014
Powering the Fiat Avventura will the same line up of engines which power the Punto :
- 1.3 liter Multijet diesel engine developing 90 bhp and 209 Nm
- 1.4 liter petrol engine developing 90 bhp and 115 Nm
Both the engines will come mated to a 5 speed manual transmission.
The new Fiat Avventura features visual enhancements such as tail gate mounted spare wheel, plastic body cladding and dual chrome exhausts. The car comes in a dual tone exterior paint job. The Avventura will appeal those who require the visual appeal of an SUV with the practicality of a hatchback.
Also, upon its India launch, Fiat Group Automobiles India (FGAIPL), the Indian subsidiary of the Chrysler Group, will be exporting the Avventura to other right hand drive markets.(CLICK HERE TO READ OUR EARLIER REPORT) In the Indian market, the Avventura will lock horns with the Volkswagen Cross Polo and the newly launched Etios Cross from Toyota.
