Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) India today announced that the nationwide delivery of the new Fiat Avventura Urban Cross will begin on October 1, 2016, in time for the country’s festive season. The Fiat cross-hatch will hit Indian roads at a launch price of INR 6.85 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). The cross-hatch will be available with diesel engines in two trims – Active and Dynamic – both powered by the 93 PS, 1.3-litre Multijet engine, and one top-of-the-line petrol (powered by Abarth) variant – the 1.4-litre TJet with 140 PS, in the Emotion trim. Both engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The Avventura Urban Cross comes with new lower body cladding, an intercalated Piano Black front grille, new front and rear dual-tone bumpers with skid plates along with a set of two-tone diamond-cut-finish 16-inch alloys with Piano Black painted pockets. Other embellishments include a rear spoiler (standard on all variants), side body cladding and roof rails. The Emotion trim, powered by Abarth gets the exclusive 16-inch ‘Scorpion’ alloys, while the Active diesel and Dynamic diesel get the diamond-cut-finish, Piano Black 16-inch alloys.
The dual tone interiors of the Urban Cross come with standard features such as central and automatic door locking, dual tone dashboard with a soft touch front panel, rear AC vents, front ‘smart’ power windows with ‘delay’ and ‘auto-down’ functions which roll up even after switching off, along with a Smartech music system with a 5-inch touch screen, navigation (standard across all variants), Bluetooth audio streaming and telephony.
For a limited period that includes the upcoming festive season, the Urban Cross will be offered with Premium Burgundy Designer Interiors with colour coordinated door inserts, Piano finish door armrests and Designer seats with badging.
