Smile Re: Fiat's India strategy revealed. Abarth, Jeep, new Linea & Punto coming. More insi

The Avventura is going to stand out in the crowd atleast in this flashy avatar. The alloys are eye catching. The rear beauty gets spoiled because of the oversized spare. Dont understand why Fiat didnt opt for side opening of the hatch door instead of top? Even the side door claddings look over sized.

Which is the Red car next to the Avventura? Is it facelifted Punto or Linea?

Doesn't look half as bad as I thought it would. Infact the only thing wrong with it is the spare wheel at the rear. Looks bolder and better than Punto (thanks to bigger wheels & probably higher GC). Now let's hope they plonk the 1.4 T-Jet in it.

PS: especially like the striped tires. Reminds me of those F1 style white striped use by Bridgestone some years ago.

Seems like the good old Grande Punto in the current sports avatar. Black roof and the side sport stripes are a give away.

While Aventura looks great, I am more excited about the logo in the background of pic that Karthik1100 has shared. Finally Abarth is coming.

Really hope Aventura has the power to go with the menacing looks.

My initial plans were to visit the Expo on Saturday but now I am taking a leave from office and will be there during business hours on Friday. Hope there isn't much rush and I get explore all these fantastic Fiats up-close.

Avventura is such a ridiculous name :/ Punto Sport is cool & classy.

Waiting for the specs.. I am assuming 1.4 Petrol & 1.3 90 HP engine options. Price range 7 to 8.5 Lakhs. Would have been brilliant to have the T-Jet engine in there though.

Avventura is the Italian word for Adventure. Fiat is trying their luck by having Italian names now!

Looking at the pictures its not clear that its not 200mm.
The current punto has a GC of 185mm, this can very well be 200mm with those 17" wheels.
Lets wait for the specs to be released before calling it Pretentious

Both are global models brought to India, while Aventurra is India specific (with Italian name)currently !

The new Fiat Linea sedan was also showcased at the stall. The new Linea will come with a restyled front grille, re-profiled bumper, new fog lamp clusters and lots of chrome. At the rear, the bumper gets minor tweaks with an additional chrome strip and the number plate has now moved on to the bootlid. Fiat has also worked on making the interiors more modern and luxurious, not only more than the current car but also than the facelifted one on sale in international markets. It comes with cruise control, a new audio system with Bluetooth, aux and USB connectivity, reverse parking sensors, rain sensing wipers and more.

Sadly, No mention on the engine specs. FIAT pls launch it with a 1.6 Diesel. Its much needed.

^^ Doesn't look like there's a new engine, otherwise it would have definitely been highlighted.

The Avventura is also a concept as of now so not sure when it will launch.
