The Fiat Avventura will the company’s offering in the faux-crossover segment, where it will compete against the likes of the Volkswagen Cross Polo and the Toyota Etios Cross. While the Cross Polo and Etios Cross are just cladded up variants of the standard hatchbacks they are based on, Fiat has made some changes to make the Avventura stand apart from the Punto Evo.

Why is Fiat entering a segment that has not resulted in high sales for the current players involved in it till now? Fiat thinks that the features it is going to offer on the Avventura will justify the extra cost of the car over the Punto Evo. It believes that these features along with practical changes made to the exteriors and interiors of the car will help attract more customers to the Avventura. What features does it get? Let’s find out.

The Avventura will be powered by the higher power variants of the engines offered on the Punto Evo as standard i.e, the 90PS, 1.4-litre FIRE engine and the 93 PS, 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel motor. On the outside, the Avventura sits higher than the Punto Evo with a ground clearance of 205mm, it gets additional body cladding for that ‘macho’ look, redesigned front and rear bumpers, functional roof-racks, 16-inch wheels and a hatch-mounted ‘SUV-like’ spare wheel.

Inside, unique features include the addition of a compass and inclinometer on the top of the centre console, Smart front power windows, fully-front folding rear seats for increased usable space, etc. These features combined with a very stylish interior is sure to make the Avventura stand out too, it gets dual-tone dashboard, dashboard ambient lighting and fabric trim on the doors etc.

The only thing that could dampen sales for the Avventura would be how it decides to price the car. Even though it does offer some more equipment than the Punto Evo, the Avventura will have an uphill task of convincing people as it is a niche product.
