The Punto Evo PowerTech starts at INR 6.81 lakhs and Avventura PowerTech starts at INR 7.87 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Fiat Punto Evo and Avventura diesel versions now carry the new PowerTech branding which signifies the introduction of the 93 PS 1.3-litre MultiJet engine as standard across the variant lineup.

The PowerTech models will be available in Active, Dynamic, and Emotion trims.

The more powerful diesel engine is aimed at enhancing the products’ appeal.

In addition to the more powerful diesel engine, the Punto Evo and Avventura PowerTech models will also benefit from standard 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system which incorporates Bluetooth, USB, SD Card, rear view camera and navigation system (powered by Map My India).

Rest of the package continues to remain the same. The Punto and Avventura, along with other Fiat models have been experiencing tough times in the Indian market. Sales performances are far from satisfactory. Fiat hopes that the added value would make its cars more appealing to the enthusiasts.

The 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel engine with variable geometry turbo (VGT) produces 93 PS and 200 Nm of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission propels the front wheels. The 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre FIRE petrol engines continue untouched.
