Sneak Peek: Fiat Punto Avventura Concept

Fiat has released a teaser image of the upcoming Punto Avventura that will make its world debut at the Auto Expo happening in Noida. The Punto Avventura, which is based on the Grande Punto hatchback, will feature bold cladding on the lower portion of the bumpers and doors to lend it a tough look. But perhaps more importantly, it will be the Punto Avventura’s tail-gate-mounted spare wheel that will help distinguish it from the standard Grande Punto and other hatchback-based pseudo-SUVs such as the Volkswagen Cross Polo and the Auto Expo-bound Toyota Etios Cross. This alone should make the Punto Avventura a more convincing proposition to buyers who weren’t quite taken by the timid Cross Polo. 
 
Interestingly, the Avventura’s spare wheel gets its own side-hinged mount and is not attached to the upward-opening tail gate. Also note, the spare wheel is not considered when measuring length which means the Avventura will duck under four-metres, and correspondingly be taxed as a small car, just as the Grande Punto. The Punto Avventura will run on Fiat’s 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine.
