The 2007 Fiat Bravo is the next, err, ultimate weapon of the Italian car maker in re-conquering the European market after years of financial problems. Developed and built together with the Austrian coach builder Magna Steyr, the new compact family hatchback is built on their middle-aged Fiat C-Platform that was first used back in 2001 when the Italian brand presented their elegant Fiat Stilo hatchback, which will soon be succeeded by the 2007 Bravo.
Resembling its closest competitor –the Peugeot 307 five-door hatchback — the new Bravo somehow manages to retain the company’s original style and, if you don’t mind, even propels it to the next level.
The 2007 Fiat Bravo will be officially unveiled to the public in January 2007 in Rome, Italy and will arrive to dealerships a couple of months later. Alas, it’ll never cross the Pond.
As usual, the vehicle will be offered with an impressive choice of engines, including the turbocharged 1.9-liter 150hp diesel Multijet and the new family of T-JET engines working on gasoline.
More technical details will be available later.
