Performance:

The Fiat Avventura Urban Cross comes with the same powertrain shared by the standard Avventura. It is powered by a 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox which churns out 140 PS of peak power at 5500 rpm and 210 Nm of peak torque between 2000 rpm to 4000 rpm. The engine is peppy and kicks out enough power for this car to run on urban road smoothly, while an occasional off roading trip in the weekend will not be bad we guess. Although Fiat Avventura comes with a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engine option under the hood, it is not sure whether the Avventura Urban Cross will be sold with the diesel engine or not.

The Urban Cross comes with the tried and tested 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel engine and the 1.4-litre T-Jet petrol (which powers the Avventura Abarth). We first started with the 1.4-litre T-Jet and it’s quite an exciting engine to drive and this one doesn’t disappoint one bit.

The car looks like a very efficient off road capable car. Moreover, the 24.3 km pl of fuel economy of Vitara Brezza is much better than Avventura Urban Cross’s 14.4 km pl even better than the diesel powered Avventura engine which delivers 20.5 km pl.
