Styling/Image

A Maserati inspired front end, an aggressive side profile and traditional Italian curves give the Bravo a dash of style. The Italian backs this up with a fair amount of substance. While it can’t match the VW Golf for fit and finish, the Fiat features tight shut lines and solid build. There’s a simple trim line up, with basic, Active, Dynamic and Sport models offering plenty of kit and competitive prices.

Interior/Practicality

There’s little fault once you’re behind the wheel, although some will find that the driver’s seat too high set. Rear passenger space isn’t great, either, with limited headroom. The entry-level Bravo gets a CD player, remote central locking and front electric windows. Upgrade to the Active for air-con, while the Dynamic gets Bluetooth, MP3 compatibility. cruise and climate control. The Sport gets less luxury kit, but adds ESP and stiffer sports suspension.

Engine/Performance

Entry-level cars get a 90bhp 1.4-litre petrol motor, but it’s worth spending extra for the punchy TJet turbocharged unit in either 118 or 148bhp tune. Even the lower powered model will sprint from zero to 62mph in 9.6 seconds, while still returning over 40mpg. The 1.9-litre Multijet diesel is also a real gem, delivering smooth and torquey performance and 50.4mpg.

Driving experience

The Bravo majors on comfort, with a supple ride and good sound insulation making it extremely refined on the motorway. Extremely rough surfaces can upset the Fiat’s composure – this is especially true of the stiffly sprung Sport. Turn into a sharp bend and the Italian responds sharply, although the electrically assisted steering lacks weight and feel, reducing driver fun.

Ownership Costs

Residuals are much improved over the Fiat’s predecessor, with the new car retaining around 39 percent of its value. Service intervals of 18,000 miles also help to take the financial sting out of Bravo ownership. Further cost savings can be made by plumping for one of the Italian firm’s inclusive servicing packages. However, unless you want red paint, you’ll have to dig a little deeper into your pockets – all other colours are extra cost options.

Safety/Environment

Fiat’s answer to the VW Bluemotion is the Bravo Eco Pack. Using a modified 1.6-litre diesel, the eco-friendly family model returns 62.8mpg and emits 119g/km of CO2. In terms of safety, each Bravo is fitted with ABS with EBD, Isofix, and passenger airbag as standard. Trade up to Active trim and you’ll also get window airbags added to the package.

I have this car and its a great drive and looks amazing. Yes its fiat, part of farrari :) I use to have a peugeot 206. I traded it for this and it was the best thing i have ever done. In 3 years all I have had to replace is two tyres. Just wish I had got mine for this price.

Just be aware that you will not be registered as the first keeper. All their cars are registered to a finance co first. Otherwise ok to buy from them. I have bought 2 cars from them.

I test drove one of these for 24hrs - really drank petrol.

Looks like a good price for a pretty good car - Doubtless we'll soon hear from the "for this money I'd rather buy a 5 year old BMW" brigade. Each to their own I suppose but at least with a Fiat, unlike an aged BMW, you don't have to have a shaved head, baseball cap, shell suit and spray tan to drive it. Moreover Fiat's can use all three lanes on a motorway (not just the outside lane) and don't need to be the last car to merge when the road narrows! LOL

Looks pretty nice to me.

We had the T-Jet 150, which I won't recommend, just too fast on too basic suspension and brakes, it jumped about all over the place. But we test drove the 120 before we chose the to buy the 150 and it was far better and is the one we should have bought. The car itself is very attractive and pretty well built and was very relible. Ours was a 58 reg, so hopefully it's even better now. We paid £9200 for the active pre-reg so a good price for the dymanic.
