Fiat Urban Cross Exterior Design Review

The exterior design of the Urban Cross is much like that of the Avventura. The new Fiat Urban Cross looks more stylish and premium. It also has a sporty touch to it. The Urban Cross doesn’t get an Avventura-like rear-mounted spare wheel. The Urban Cross gets a Merc A Class-like ‘diamond grille’. While the basic design is the same, the new Urban Cross si chic and even slightly sporty. The headlamps with LED fixtures seen on the concept haven’t made it to the production spec model. The fog lamps are also new. The new Urban Cross rides on stylish 16-inch alloy wheels. While the petrol model borrows the Abarth Avventura’s Scorpion alloy wheels, the diesel version gets the standard model’s alloys. The Urban Cross gets a black rub strip on its doors. The roof rails are finished in silver.


Fiat Urban Cross Interior Design Review

The interior too is largely the same as the Avventura’s and Punto Evo’s. The dashboard gets a burgundy colour theme available only on the Dynamic and Emotion trims. It also gets some features like a touchscreen audio system that supports navigation. Much of the other elements inside the cabin come from the Avventura and Punto. The interior also gets features like Blue & Me with voice commands, airbags, automatic climate control and rear ac vent.
