Fiat Bravo is Fiat's new small family car introduced to the press in January 2007 in Rome, and later in the Geneva Motor Show in 2007. The new Bravo is 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 is 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 Bravo is 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 120PS 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. A new 2.0 Multijet diesel was added to lineup in the end of 2008.
