Three new additions to the Fiat Bravo range – two 1.6 MultiJet versions and an Eco option – went on sale here earlier this month. These Euro 5-compliant versions join a buoyant Bravo line-up, which has enjoyed significant recognition since its introduction to the UK in June last year.
The 2007 launch marked Fiat’s return to the second largest segment of the UK market, which equates to almost 600,000 cars per year or some 25 per cent of the total. The new engines enhance existing aspects of the Bravo range – with even more impressive economy, lower running costs and notably low emissions.
There are now 17 versions in the UK Bravo range, priced from £10,995 to £16,355 on-the-road, embracing five trim levels – Bravo, Active, Active Sport, Dynamic and Sport. Augmenting an interior design founded on the fundamental pre-requisites of class-leading space, exemplary build quality, and visual and tactile sophistication, the Bravo’s equipment specification has been carefully considered to simplify and enhance life on board. ABS anti-lock braking, remote central locking, driver and passenger front and side airbags, electric front windows, a CD player, Dualdrive electric power steering and Follow Me Home headlamps are fitted as standard, even within entry-level models.
This comprehensive equipment package is further boosted by a range of innovative, safety and comfort enhancing options such as dual-zone climate control, cruise control, rain, parking and tyre pressure sensors, a SkyDome glass sunroof occupying almost the entire Bravo roof area, a CD system – with subwoofer – that can play MP3 files, and Blue & Me mobile phone and MP3 player connectivity with steering wheel controls.
