Fiat is displaying its Punto-based Avventura concept and the Abarth 500 at its Prabhadevi showroom in Mumbai from March 20-23. Prospective buyers from Mumbai who couldn’t attend the Auto Expo, where these cars were first displayed, now have the opportunity to see them up close.
First revealed at the Auto Expo, Fiat's Avventura concept is essentially a more rugged version of the Punto. The concept comes with 200mm ground clearance and larger wheels, which are likely to improve its rough road tackling capabilities. It also sports a tail-gate-mounted spare wheel, mouldings on the side, protective skid plates and fully functional roof-rails.
The Fiat 500 Abarth sports aggressive styling and is expected to be powered by a 137bhp 1.4-litre turbo engine. It also gets stiffer springs and dampers for better handling. Fiat is expected to launch the Abarth 500 in the second half of the year.
