    If you have directed this to my post, let me tell you i m driving MJD for 30K as of now, so not really a jump in and blah blah...

    Am I content with the perf ? yes because of my driving style, but do I want more? Hell yes after reading some of the recent remapp success stories specially from Kiran.

    Why not have more when it can deliver more?

    @rudresh Apologies. My post was occasioned by yours but was directed at the quick test drivers/engine hanging-judges, not at you personally.

    It does get irritating to hear complaints about the 90 hp mjd when people don't acknowledge that whatever it lacks at the low-end, it makes up in the mid-range. i.e., complaints by people (NOT you ;-)) who don't care to understand its character objectively, and only then judge it, rather than rush to a subjective judgment based on the absence of frisky acceleration from a standing start.

    Just another one of the stigmatising rumours about Fiat that float around and get 'truer and truer' the more they are repeated and regurgitated by....non-owners. Just another one of my pet Fiat-ian peeves. Sorry.

    Took the test drive of Avvantura(diesel,emotion)at Torrid Motors Andheri west.
    Some points
    1. Very lite clutch, Really amazing.
    2. Fiat has tuned this engine very well, both top end and low end performance is great.
    3. NVH levels are great. Fiat did a very good job here.
    4. Dashboard and steering looks very attractive, leather on steering is quite good as compared to my Linea, soft touch dash is great.
    5. Gear shifting is improved but not top class.
    6. Door plastic panels are looking cheap.
    7. Speakers are amazing, the sound quality is incomparable to any car under 10lac, great great.
    8. One big let down is mounted wheel make some noise when car rides on big pot holes and on really bad roads, on tar and semi-bad roads there is no problem.
    9. But on regular road also the mounted wheel vibrated and you can see that is vibrating from outside. Inside no problem.
    10. Big leap on fit and finish. Car has good road presence.
    11. Sales guys are trained properly and they have one catalog which has comparison of Avvantura with EcoSport, Cross Polo and Etios Cross.

    Forget about 1.5/1.6 MJD. My only complaint is why can't Fiat remap the 1.3 MJD for better city driving (read as less turbolag) and performance. When licencees of this engine can do that and when wolf moto can extract more juice, why can't Fiat? I heard they tuned 1.3 MJD for better low end performance in Fiat Avventura. Fingers crossed

    Then again if avventura is launched in Tjet, there are people who again complain about mileage... Kitna deta hai? There will be reviews like.. "Avventura tjet you are fast and powerful but how efficient?"

    Very true about the improvement in city - driving. They have to get people to notice their product. This amounts to something like what the Eco sport did when they first came in. I am not saying I absolutely know what will work but definitely what they are doing is not enough.
    Have to test ride the Avventura to see how different it feels from my current EVO.

    Good to hear so many positive points. I am waiting to have a test drive.

    If this hits the right cord, FIAT will surely leap frog :)
