Fiat Bravo/Brava

The Fiat Bravo and Fiat Brava are small family cars produced by the Italian automaker Fiat from 1995 to 2001. The name was revived for 2007 with an all-new replacement for the Stilo; the new version will use only the Bravo name and is not available with three doors. The earlier Brava/Bravo models were effectively two versions of the same car, the Bravo a three-door hatchback and the Brava a longer five-door hatchback. The name Brava was used in the United States on the earlier Fiat 131.

First generation

The Bravo and Brava Mark 1 were replacements for Fiat's successful but ageing Tipo model. The cars came with all new engines, the base model using a 1.4 L 12-valve engine producing 80 bhp. Three other petrol engines were available: the 103 bhp 1.6 L 16-valve; the 113 bhp 1.8 L 16-valve engine and the top of the range 2.0 L 20-valve R5 unit used in the HGT model, which produced 147 bhp and which could take the car to a maximum speed of . Two turbodiesel engines were also available: both were 1.9 L four cylinder units, one producing 75 bhp and the other making 100 bhp. Bravo/Brava was voted European Car of the Year on its launch.

In 1996 the Bravo/Brava chassis spawned saloon and estate versions, badged Fiat Marea, which won praise for its large boot. Another car based on the Bravo/Brava underpinnings was launched in 1998: the curious looking Fiat Multipla, a six-seater mini MPV.

The Bravo/Brava received a mild makeover in 1999 but there were few real changes except the addition of a 1.2 16-valve engine from the smaller Fiat Punto and a restyling of the dashboard. The 1.9 turbodiesel was also upgraded to give even better economy and refinement.

The Bravo/Brava was discontinued in Europe in late 2001, and replaced by the all-new Fiat Stilo, which was ultimately a sales flop in most countries where it was sold.

Engines in Brazil

The FIAT Brava was produced until 2003 in Brazil for the home market and export, but in the former the engines available were:

  • Brava SX 1.6 16v (106 bhp)
  • Brava ELX 1.6 16v (106 bhp)
  • Brava HGT 1.8 16v (132 bhp) (the same engine used in the Brazilian Fiat Marea SX model, initially declared as having 127 bhp to avoid higher taxation)

Second generation

Fiat Bravo is Fiat's new small family car introduced to the press in January 2007 in Rome, and later st the Geneva Motor Show in 2007. The new Bravo will be produced in Fiat's Cassino plant in Piedimonte S. Germano. The car was designed by Fiat Style Centre. Austrian automotive company Magna Steyr engineered a large amount of the car's body and internal fittings. CAD engineering and computer simulations were used on a very large scale with this model and the design was finished to a very tight schedule.

Blue&Me is a new feature first introduced with the Fiat Grande Punto and is fitted as standard on the Bravo Dynamic and Sport. Developed with Microsoft this system offers Bluetooth hands-free use with a mobile phone. It is also capable of displaying SMS text on the dash screen and it has built-in voice activation. Another part of the system is the inclusion of a USB connector so that an MP3 player or USB flashcard can be plugged in, giving the car's entertainment system access to MP3 files stored on the unit.

In Australia, the Fiat Bravo will be sold as the Fiat Ritmo, as Mazda Australia owns rights to the "Bravo" name. The Bravo will also be built in Brazil from late 2009 or early 2010, and will be sold there and throughout South America.

Engines

The new Bravo will be powered by three different petrol and two diesel engines. 'T-Jet' is the name of the new range of turbocharged petrol engines. The 150 PS T-Jet version has a Sport button to give an "overboost" function. At the end of 2007 the new 1.6 L M-jet diesel engine was launched, and a more powerful version in spring 2008. The 105 PS version is avaialable with the so-called "Eco" pack which gives better fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions (119 g/km). This engine is also Euro 5 rated.
