2016 Fiat Urban Cross review, test drive

    In a bid to fit in with the urban crowd, the Fiat Avventura ditches the tailgate-mounted spare wheel to become the Urban Cross.

    Should I buy one?

    Fiat has priced the Urban Cross very competitively, and all three variants are priced well below their Avventura counterparts. At Rs 6.85 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the base Active trim diesel comes in a whole lakh cheaper than the base trim Avventura, and at Rs 9.85 lakh the top-end Emotion trim (which comes only with the petrol engine) is also cheaper than the Avventura by Rs 50,000.

    With its roots in the original Punto, the Urban Cross benefits from a suspension that's built to deal with our tough roads. However, it also inherits a few flaws, such as the odd driving position and, despite the updates, it still lags behind in equipment and tech for today’s times. No doubt this car is really showing its age and it feels outdated in comparison to most rivals, but going in its favour is sensible pricing and a tough build that’s well suited to our conditions.
