The Fiat Punto Evo Abarth and Avventura Abarth have been spotted testing in India
The Punto Evo Abarth has been finally caught on test in India in its full glory. The last time the Punto Evo Abarth hatch was spotted test almost a year back. The Punto Evo Abarth is reported to be powered by a 1.4-liter, turbocharged petrol engine that is already seen on the Linea T-Jet.
However, this engine on the Punto will produce close to 135 BHP as per rumors. Realistically, we expect the power to be in the range of 110-115 BHP of power. Torque ratings could be the same as the Linea though.
The Avventura Abarth spotted here along with the Punto Evo Abarth will also get the same engine as the Punto Evo Abarth. However, on the cosmetic front, apart from Abarth badges and graphics the car is not expected to get any changes. The Avventura Abarth will continue to have a spare wheel mounted on the hatch gate and will have same high ground clearance. The Avventura Abarth also has an anti-roll bar for better handling which, finally the Punto Evo Abarth will also along with host of suspension and brake component changes.
The spy images also suggest that the car gets a T-Jet badge on the boot, flashy Abarth body graphics on the sides, a large chrome exhaust tip and Abarth alloys which make the car look absolutely stunning. The Abarth badge on the tailgate has been hidden with masking tape. The black color makes the car look even sportier than ever.
Reports from all around suggest that Fiat will launch make a grand entry for the Abarth brand in India by this August 2015. The 595 Competizione aka the spruced up Fiat 500 will be the first car to be introduced this time. The Punto Evo Abarth and Avventura Abarth will come due in time and give the enthusiast taste of a how the Italian sports car manufacturer parent company makes hot hatches.
