    Have a doubt here. Been on my mind for quite some days now. Will 155mm ground clearance make the underbody scrape big speed breakers and uneven roads even with the stiffened suspension? This 155mm GC is what is making me go for a Avventura powered by Abarth. Maybe a test drive in Punto Abarth over speed breakers shall rest my doubts.

    We drive our Linea (2011 model) with 161mm GC. And remember that the wheelbase of Linea is much higher than that of Punto.
    Abarth Punto with 155mm GC may not be as bad as it is being speculated.

    On a personal front, I prefer the performance cars to have low GC. :)

    I think this time they did it good... My bro in law, who has no idea about fiat or cars , now knows that there is a budget race car coming from the age old brand called fiat.

    See, that is improvement

    Lighter clutch, better gear shifts :) Would look stunning in red. Facing severe opposition from home on buying a new car since Brio is less than 4 years old. But you only live once. Hope they launch it along with Punto Abarth on 19th.

    Appears all is very silent and calm... Not too much excitement in the air. So contrasting!!!

    I think the abarth avventura will appeal to a more wider section of people because of its crossover looks and higher ground clearance. Therefore the visual appeals (most importantly the scorpion alloys) should also be included in avventura.
