A new identity, a new aura, but it’s the same old wine in a new bottle. It’s the new Fiat Avventura Urban Cross my friends which is a slightly revised version of the Punto Evo or Avventura, which ever you like more. Unveiled at Auto Expo 2016, this new alternative is targeted at the customers who want something between the urban and tough appearance of the Punto Evo and Avventura respectively. Under the hood, it’s all same offering a 1.3-liter diesel engine option that is good for 93 PS and is really appreciable while the petrol variant comes powered by Abarth’s 1.4-liter T-Jet 140 PS motor. Both channel drive to front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
On the cosmetic front, it looks similar to the Avventura. The only major difference is that it comes without tailgate mounted spare wheel which in Fiat’s language making it more relevant to urban audience. Rest of the elements like roof rails, side body cladding, 205 mm ground clearance, stiffer suspension and others it has retained from the Avventura to message the ego of those hairy-chested metro men.
It comes in three variants – Active, Dynamic & Emotion. Active & Dynamic offers diesel engine only while Emotion comes only with that mighty 1.4-liter unit. All three options come with Smartech 5.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Bluetooth, 16-inch alloy wheels, central and automatic door locking, rear AC vents, front power windows with delay function that also roll up even after switching off. Rear AC vents are also standard across all three variants. The top-end variant gets Scorpion wheels while the other two, diesels, get Piano black finish alloy wheels.
For a limited period that includes the upcoming festive season, the Urban Cross will be offered with Burgundy Designer Interiors with colour coordinated door inserts, Piano finish door armrests and designer seats with badging. This Designer Interior package will be available as an option only in the Dynamic diesel and the Emotion petrol powered by Abarth variants.
Price of the Fiat cars, undoubtedly, is quite competitive and so is in the case of Urban Cross’.
