Fiat Avventura projector headlights teased, launch November 2014?
Fiat Avventura is teased again, this time its intrigued swept back projector headlamps are shown in multiple angles, on Fiat India’s website. Avventura is promoted as Contemporary Urban Vehicle; will compete with Volkswagen Polo Cross, Toyota Etios Cross and would step on Ford EcoSport’s toes as well.
Cartoony Avventura teaser image also shows partial front fascial; stretched honey comb grille, surround trim, stylish scuff plate and fog lamp enclosures are also revealed, which look the same shape as seen on concept model showcased at 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. Fiat Avventura spied earlier had same grille but did not feature projector head lights. Test mule had similar headlamp units as seen in media drive and recent spy photos of Fiat Punto EVO. Hence projector lights may be offered in top end variant of Fiat Avventura only.
Rest of features and equipment expected in production version of Avventura crossover will include compass, clinometer, tiltmeter, dashboard & steering similar to Punto EVO, multimedia system with Bluetooth & smartphone connectivity, ABS, dual Airbags, and the like. Tailgate mounted spare wheel distinguishes Fiat Avventura from its arch rivals-to-be pseudo crossovers. Another vital aspect of Avventura that makes it functionally superior to those competitors is ground clearance. Sitting at 200mm above floor, that is 15mm higher than Punto EVO (the hatchback Avventura is based on), Fiat’s CUV would draw enthusiasts who engage in mild off-roading, once it is launched by November 2014.
