September 23, 2016 – Fiat India has finally launched the long-awaited Fiat Urban Cross in the country. Available in both petrol and diesel fuel options, the Avventura based crossover is priced in the range of Rs 6.85 lakh to Rs 9.85 lakh. Bookings for the car have already begun at a token amount of Rs 21,000, while the nation wide deliveries are scheduled to commence from October 1, 2016.
The Fiat Urban Cross was first showcased at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo in pre-production form. The production version looks largely identical to the concept. It comes with a raised ground clearance of 205mm, which is more than sufficient to tackle Indian road conditions.
The Urban Cross is the second Fiat product to be based on the Punto hatchback, first being the Avventura. This new crossover shares most of its design bits with the Avventura. Though, the absence of the rear-mounted spare tyre and few more design tweaks mark difference between these two vehicles. Engine for the Fiat Urban Cross is the same as the Abarth Avventura – i.e. 1.4-litre T-Jet turbocharged petrol.
