That engine is definitely not Diesel!!!
Yes, that engine isn't the diesel, its the 1.4 FIRE with 90 PS under the hood.
It looks like they have boot release button similar to Linea. Is it for boot or spare wheel mounting arm any idea? Also I heard in Linea we can open boot while moving, is this not a safety hazard? Correct me if I am wrong.
Wondering if they give cycles free with Avventura
I might visit showroom for cycles
You might even ask the models standing along to be given with Aventura
Well intention was same...but thought of starting with something thats easy and polite to ask
The difference is mostly to the eye: this car is just even bolder, younger, even more EVOcative of a tough sporty character. Without being vulgar or too brash. While staying beautiful, 'bella' you might say. But it does have an awesome tyre/GC/suspension/steering/brakes combo, as we know, just like the Linea and Evo, only better.
A brilliant, proper crossover, perfect for touring Indian roads, while imbuing any journey with visual drama. Bet it will not cost over-much more than a Punto 90hp.
About Autocar: you should've seen the harsh wantonly ungenerous review of the Tata Zest! Which they had to correct and compensate for in subsequent articles, double-quick. They remain the most reasonable in their over-selective, commercialist praise and denigration though. And in this case, they are spot on, the Avventura looks to have that 'special' quality: charisma, aura.
a bit OTT ,now that you mention the Tata Zest, I cant help but think how the Tata Indigo Marina would have been the perfect platform for a crossover or even a 7-seater estate. Would have blown the likes of tin-cans like Honda Mobilio out of the road. Pity no one in TML back in 2007-2008 had the guts to gently pull Mr RNT by the side and whisper into his ears " Sir you are wrong about the Nano"..
Tata could have continued to refine their existing cars, concentrate on QC and become much more successful.
@prabhjot - really, I still dont get the one unique selling proposition of this car. Its at best another variant of the Punto Evo- they could have indeed marketed it so, to make Punto Evo more visually desirable. The silliest stuff they have done is to install those inclinometers. The average consumer in the mall is surely looking for a touchscreen Nav system..how the hell does a 10deg bank/departure angle concern him when the car already has sufficient ground clearance ?
And the biggest joke is putting the base version for display in public space. When you want to SELL, you need to put the best foot forward..Fiat's marketing is a hopeless case.
@acechip I second Prabhjot here. Forget about marketing of Fiat. I feel whoever buys fiat is a well informed customer. No person buys Fiat car by accident. Masses never understand and buy Fiat cars in near future however intense the advertisement is.
I am quite impressed with Avventura. If I am getting a Crossover with much improved GC, butch looks and tough sporty car for a little more price than a hatch back, I will definitely buy Avventura.
Now Fiat vehicles are available for die hard Fiat fans from 4.5 lakh to 10 Lakhs.
Well, no one buys any car by accident. Even the so-called uninformed buyers who follow the herd mentality of buying the Citys/Vernas/Swifts . They also buy that car for a solid reason. Its just that we Fiat-ians dont agree with it. I feel we are giving some unnecessary gloss to Fiat as a brand-kinda "we are like that only". Fiat and its products are every bit mass market products as are Hyundai/MSIL/Honda/Toyota/VW. There is really nothing niche about any of these brands in terms of the cars they sell in India particularly. And so, Fiat must strive to get rid of the delusional mindset of them having an exclusive appeal.
