The Fiat Bravo (Type 198) is a small family car produced by Italian manufacturer Fiat since 2007. It was introduced to the press in January 2007 in Rome, and later to the public in March at the Geneva Motor Show. European production at the Cassino plant ended in July 2014, being part of FCA's 5–Year Plan, presented by Sergio Marchionne on May 7, 2014. However, no direct replacement was launched.

It was the first car to bear Fiat Automobiles' current logo, introduced in October 2006, which contains a red background in a chrome frame.[2]

History

The car was designed at Centro Stile Fiat,[1] while Austrian automotive company Magna Steyr engineered a large amount of the car's body.[3] 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. For EMEA markets the Bravo was produced in Fiat's Piedimonte S. Germano plant.

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 was sold as the Fiat Ritmo, as Mazda Australia owns rights to the "Bravo" name. It was introduced there in February 2008, however, it was discontinued the following year, due to slow sales - only 463 units were sold in total. The Bravo is also being built in Brazil since 2010, and is being sold there and throughout South America (with the exception of Argentina, Chile and Colombia, who receive the Bravo from Italy).

Fiat were working on an station wagon variant, in January 2007, set to be titled the Bravo MultiWagon, a very production-ready version of the 5-door Fiat Bravo that, however, never made it to production. Other sources say, that this was actually the facelifted Fiat Croma, launched in October 2007.[citation needed]

Brazilian version

The Brazilian-built Bravo went on sale in 2010 in Brazil. Its available with two engines and three trim levels (five trim levels since 2012), the Brazilian-built 1.8L 16V E.torQ (based on Tritec engine) fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission or Dualogic transmission and Italian built 1.4L engine with Script error: No such module "convert". (with Overboost option) and a 6-speed manual transmission. Trim levels are named as: Essence (1.8), Essence Wolverine Limited Edition (1.8), Sporting (1.8), Absolute (1.8) and T-Jet (1.4T).[4]

Engines

1.4 T-Jet engine

The Bravo is powered by three different petrol and three diesel engines.[5][6] 'T-Jet' is the name of the new range of turbocharged petrol engines.

The Script error: No such module "convert". 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 Script error: No such module "convert". version in spring 2008. The Script error: No such module "convert". version is available with the so-called "Eco" pack which features changes to the car's aerodynamics and ECU, taller gear ratios and lower rolling resistance tyres. This gives better fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions (119 g/km) when compared to the standard car. This engine is also Euro 5 rated.[7] A new 2.0 Multijet diesel was added to lineup at the end of 2008 that will slowly replace the 1.9 16v. In 2009 the Bravo got a new "eco" Script error: No such module "convert". variant of the Multijet diesel. In the Summer of 2010 two petrol engines were updated, the 1.4 T-Jet is fitted with the new Multiair technology and the base 1.4 T-Jet was also updated to Euro 5 specification.[8]
