Fiat has launched the Avventura Urban Cross in the Indian market for a launch price of Rs 6.85 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It is available across three variants - two diesel and petrol, of which the latter is an Abarth spec vehicle. Bookings began a week ago and deliveries for the car will take place in October.
Fiat had unveiled the Urban Cross at the 2016 Auto Expo in concept form and the production vehicle has not strayed too far away. Based on the Avventura hatchover, this new car gets a chrome-laced grille and LED DRLs. The side profile too is similar to that of the Punto Evo and Avventura save for the design of the alloy wheels which are 16-inch units and with Abarth design. The rear loses out on the extra section that held the spare wheel on the Avventura but otherwise looks quite good.
The dual tone interiors of the Urban Cross gets standard features across the line-up such as central locking, dual tone dashboard with a soft touch front panel, rear AC vents, front power windows, five-inch touchscreen infotainment. For a limited period, the Urban Cross will be offered with a Burgundy interior. This Designer Interior package will be available as an option only in the Dynamic diesel and the Emotion petrol powered by Abarth variants.
It will be offered with the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine and the 1.3-litre Multijet diesel. The former produces 138bhp while the latter will be in the 90bhp/209Nm state of tune. Both vehicles will only be offered with a five-speed manual. The diesel will be offered in the Active and Dynamic variants while the petrol will be offered in a single top-of-the-line Emotion variant.
Commenting on the launch of the Urban Cross, Kevin Flynn, president and managing director, FCA India said, “FCA’s commitment to India is firmly in place as we continue to add more products to our Fiat portfolio.
