@anonexpr, within your budget Punto Evo 90hp fits well in the budget. Ground clearance of 90hp seems to be at par with Avventura according to my SA, he seems to be confidently mentioning a Ground clearance of 200mm in real as oppose to 185 on paper. By look itself the 90hp stands taller. Size wise I don't see any obvious difference between an Avventura and Punto Evo. I park my car usually next a Avventura in my office parking and always compare both. Getting a 90hp Punto Evo atleast makes sure that you get the best range in the Punto Evo and no regret whatever so like "wish I had that extra 20hp and black interior" in future. Because, this is the best Punto Evo you can get from Fiat stable. If you are going to hit the highway more than, you will surely love the way 90hp takes on the highway effortlessly. Still, take test drive of both the 75hp and 90hp and make your choice. Good luck.
