    Finally took the test drive today.
    Awesome vehicle with excellent dynamics. Rock solid feel. Tin-can brands no comparison to the FIAT. Decision taken in its favour. I am wondering now why almost all the auto review mags and channels were giving it a 'not so good' review. Maybe FCA hasn't warmed their pockets. Don't know.
    Sharing something I had never before experienced before:
    Had been trying to get a test drive from the local dealer at Guwahati for the past two weeks to no avail. So yesterday on an impulse sent an email to Mr. Kevin Flynn, MD FCA India. I got a reply within 10 mins that he would call me to sort it out today at 11:30 am. I got his call at 11:30 sharp. He talked with me and I had the test drive at 1pm.
    I am overwhelmed. Who says FCA India does not respond to its customers. This gesture itself took away whatever doubts I had about their after sales service niggles doing its rounds on the net.

    Strange that you had to reach to MD of FIAT to get a test drive. Even more strange is that MD called you back !!!
    Have you made the booking? Why did you select the Abarth version of Avventura?

    @limraj This was the only abarth available with the dealer. It arrived last Monday only. Probably because the Northeast is so far off from Mumbai :-( I have not booked yet. Shall be doing it very soon. I selected it for the Tjet petrol engine. I am a confirmed petrol head and I felt the avventura powered by the FIRE engine to be underpowered. Moreover the FIRE is an ancient engine I felt.

    The punto abarth has been available since the launch date at Guwahati. Only the Avvy was late in arriving. I drive a Swift so this time am planning to switch to larger wheels :happy:

    @Dr Nitin Dutta good to hear of the response from Fiat. I am from Guwahati and also a fan of Fiat cars so does make me feel happy that Fiat service seems to be improving. Perhaps a ride to Arunachal in an Avventura. :)

    @Raj_pol Today I had to visit FASS Guwahati for a minor niggle. I was simply overwhelmed by their QOS. OMG. They might be a small team ; but they are way ahead of MASS in terms of efficiency and courtesy. I had been a loyalist of Maruti for 25 long years. After my experience today at the FASS I do not have an iota of regret for switching brand loyalties. Keep it up FCA India...

    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and have been interested in new Abarth Avventura since its launch. I am really surprised to see very few threads for the new Avventura though I see better response and quite a few threads for the Abarth Punto on this forum and others as well. Is there a particular reason Abarth Avventura is not being talked about even in the Fiat lovers community?
