Fiat Punto Adventure crossover spied , India launch by mid-2014
We were the first to inform you that Fiat will introduce the Punto Adventure, which is the crossover version of the Punto hatchback in India by the mid of 2014. It is expected to be unveiled at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo, where Toyota will also present its Etios Cross. For the first time, the answer to the likes of Polo Cross and Etios Cross has been spotted.
Quattro Ruote has managed to click the rear profile of the Punto Adventure during its test rounds. Like we mentioned earlier that Fiat will be trying to make a tougher version of Punto Cross; the spyshots has proved our saying. The vehicle not just have cladding, but it gets an entirely new rear bumper and a rear wheel mounted on the boot. However, the bumper gets the same tail lamp cluster. Looking closely at the spare wheel, you will get to know that it features the "Adventure" badge and a handle for better grip.
Despite having the rugged looks, the vehicle retains the FWD architecture from the hatchback, however it is expected that the Cross Punto could sport an electronic traction control. Slated to be launched sometime by mid-2014, the Punto Adventure will be powered by the same 1.3-litre multijet engine that churns out a maximum power output of 90bhp and 200Nm of top torque. It will also get the 1.4-litre FIRE petrol engine.
