As a part of its Grand Road Show, Fiat has brought its Avventura and Abarth models to Mumbai for display. The models are on display at Esskay Motors Showroom at Prabhadevi in Mumbai from 20th March to 23rd March.
Both the Avventura and Abarth were unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo last month. Quite in accordance with the attention both the models received at the Auto Expo, Fiat has termed them as Superstars and is taking them to various cities.
Fiat Avventura is a crossover vehicle, and is essentially a more rugged version of the Fiat Punto. It gets better off-roading potential as well as significant styling changes from the Punto. These include a wider footprint, a taller stance, a black wraparound enveloping the lower portion of the vehicle and a rear mounted spare wheel.
Avventura will be powered by 1.4L NA petrol engine from Linea Classic and Punto and the 1.3L Multijet diesel which is expected to come in the VGT 90PS tune. Avventura will be launched towards the second half of this year. In exclusive spottings we have shared the first ever production spyshots of the car which reveal that there are a few omissions from the concept showcased at the Expo. You can check out spyshots here.
Abarth is one of the various brands that take shelter under the conglomerate umbrella of Fiat. The Abarth 500 premium hatchback was unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo, too. They plan to launch this absolutely gorgeous vehicle in India by the end of this year.
The Abarth 500 is a three-door hatchback derived from the Fiat 500 of yore, and legend. In India, the Abarth 500 will compete against the Volkswagen Beetle and BMW’s Mini Cooper. Abarth 500 may be locally assembled to give it an edge in terms of price as compared to its competitors. Despite its Reminds-you-of-Yesterday type of styling, the Abarth is not short of modern technology.
The list includes :
- Gas-discharge headlights
- Cross drilled brake discs
- Sports seats
- Lowered suspension with up-rated springs
- 17” alloy wheels
- 7 airbags
- Turbo boost gauge
- Twin exhaust outlets
- ABS and EBD along with HBA
- Parking sensors and fog lights
Fiat Abarth 500 will be powered by the 1.4L turbocharged T-JET petrol engine which produces 140PS of power output and over 200Nm of torque. The 0-100kmph sprint comes in only 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 200kmph.
